Careful, munchies: Food Cinemagraphs on “Buttery Planet”


As you may know, I became a fan of Cinemagraphs ever since I saw them for the first time, half a year ago. Despite GIF being an old acquaintance, for the longest time I was unaware of the enormous potential of the in IQ terms severely limited data format. Until I saw Julien Douvier‘s animated photos on the internet, I believed that, due to too low color depth, it was only useable for animated emoticons and ads. The next aha moment followed not even a month later, in the form of Romain Laurent’s funny “Loop Portraits”, which have managed to convince me entirely of the creative potential inherent to GIF data format.

As I’ve found out today, the two Frenchmen are not the only photographers who are successfully experimenting with GIFs. The Russian duo – photographer Daria Khoroshavina and cook/model Olga Kolesnikova – has devoted an entire Tumblr page to animated photos. The focus of Buttery Planet are mouth-watering dishes and drinks, as well as various cooking steps. In order to give you a foretaste of what awaits you on the page, I’ve embedded a few of the cineamagraphs down below.

Do you also think that movement is making the subjects look even tastier? 🙂
