Cinemagraphs by Julien Douvier

A cinemagraph is a photograph in which a selected area is animated to produce a specific movement repeated in a loop. French photographer Julien Douvier takes already vivid photographs and breathes life into them with subtle additions such as the flow of water, smoke or the sway of ivy branches in the wind.

There appears to be a common motif of loneliness and isolation in the images shown here, and the inclusion of movement seems to only highlight the solitude, in that it hints at the simultaneous passage of time.
