Arabella : a story in cinemagraph

Albert Einstein once said: “the most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” This is what I feel a cinemagraph brings to a photograph, the mysterious. I have recently been obsessed with Cinemagraphs. Its a recent revival of old photo world technique called stereograph, a combo of two pictures. Here is a series of video converted into moving photographs that I did with a young and talented model named Arabella. All the shots are edited in a Cinemagraph technique. This has been a good learning experience and I love it thus far. Please share your thoughts! :]
