Amusingly Disturbing B&W GIFs Made From Historic Photographs

Published 2 years ago

NYC-based art director and designer Kevin Weir has released a series of ghostly GIFs based on historic black and white photographs depicting war scenes and portraits. The slow-paced GIFs catch us with disturbing surprises, scaring us but also giving us a dark sort of satisfaction.

Weir’s passion for GIFs began during his grad school years and has been evolving ever since. To create his mystical and amusingly absurd black and white GIFs, Weir uses photographs from the Library of Congress online archive.
