There is something really beautiful and haunting about these photos.
A little about the GIF's (not flash) and their creators...
"We wanted to tell more of a story than a single still frame photograph but didn't want the high maintenance aspect of a video. Primarily, Beck shoots the photos and Burg applies the motion-graphics magic in what they describe as "a highly collaborative process" that can take several hours of manual editing in order to breathe the whisper of life into each image."
I think it adds an interesting dimension and emotion to a photo and, with the stillness of the rest of the image, it almost feels like you've somehow captured a "moment" in time right before the world just...stopped.
They also remind me of the paintings hanging in Hogwarts in the Harry Potter books/movies.
