Stunning Cinemagraphs


Sometimes, it's all about the tiniest of details.

French photographer Julien Douvier has created a host of incredibly beautiful cinemagraphs: a photograph with one element picked out to contain movement, draw the attention and take the image onto a whole new level.

He's put together several different collections over the past few months covering a host of different styles; we've selected our favourite 12 images, but there are many more to enjoy at his Behance page, Tumblr or website.

Take a moment to immerse yourself in each image: you won't be disappointed.
