Kevin Weir, an art director and designer based-in New York, has enliven the otherwise old and forgotten historical black and white photographs taken from the Library of Congress Flickr account. The artist transformed the photos into a series of weird and ghostly yet impressive animated GIFs. Yep, his work was a bit scary… but fun and interesting!
I wonder… if he has already gotten access to the Egyptian mummies. I hope not! 🙂
Weir tells Colossal that “my parents’ boss bought me a copy of Photoshop and I decided I wanted to be some kind of designer.” Then five years later, he found himself “making black and white GIFs as a way to occupy myself during the downtime of an internship I had during grad school.”
