Cinemagraphs got really popular for a while and then seemed to just sort of fade away. That is, until I saw Julien Douvier‘s work. Not only are his images gorgeous on their own, his animations are perfectly seamless. It’s not easy to make a cinemagraph, especially at this level, and it takes a talented eye to understand what will work and what won’t. Julien’s images work.
I also highly recommend taking a look at his ‘Routine‘ series while listening to the music embedded on the page.
