The New York Times has given readers a new way to view photos by making them come alive on a web page.
The paper used three moving images Tuesday in a story about the Statue of Liberty. Each one has very subtle movement but allows readers to see the movement of water, trees and a bird flying over the head of Lady Liberty.
Culture Editor Julie Bloom told The Atlantic Wire that the videos are html 5 videos.
“They shot video using a 5dmii and extracted sequences to look like photographs with a bit of motion. They are supposed to feel like moving photographs. They are looped silently and placed in a slide show player.” – The Atlantic Wire
