The Kid Should See This

The Infinite Now, a series of oceanscape cinemagraphs

Over the past months I’ve been working with Australian photographer Ray Collins to bring his amazing oceanscapes to life in the form of cinemagraphs, a blend between photography and video. Each cinemagraph is created from one of Ray’s stills, and sets it in infinite motion, making a unique moment in time last forever.

These cinemagraphs inspired André Heuvelman from the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra to get together with pianist Jeroen van Vliet to record a very moving custom soundtrack, which I combined with a selection of the cinemagraphs.

From cinematographer Armand Dijcks and photographer Ray Collins, behold The Infinite Now, waves that seem to both move forward and stand still in time.

See more photography projects, including these stunning insect portraits, How to paint with ice skates, and the Beauty of Space Photography, and The Lighthouse of La Jument.

Bonus: Demo of the FloWave Ocean Simulator & the AMOEBA wave pool.
