Animated Photography

“There is only you and your camera.
The limitations in your photography are in yourself,
for what we see is what we are.”
Ernst Haas

Animated Photography

I recently came across a very cool animated short film titled, The Old New World. A Moscow-based photographer and animator, Alexey Zakharov created this film by combining photographs from the past with technology from today.

To create the four-minute film, Zakharov took photos of New York, Boston, Washington, Detroit, Washington D.C. and Baltimore captured between 1900 and 1940 and animated them into a wonderful film.

There’s no information on how exactly the process was done, but judging from his past projects, it looks as though he used the images as references for 3D models, then overlaid the images as textures to effectively create an entire 3D world from still images. However it was done, the result is absolutely incredible, as you can see from this animated photography.
