Animation is the process of creating motion and shape change illusion by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other. The illusion—as in motion pictures in general—is thought to rely on the phi phenomenon. Animators are artists who specialize in the creation of animation.

Animations can be recorded on either analogue media, such as a flip book, motion picture film, video tape, or on digital media, including formats such as animated GIF, Flash animation or digital video. To display it, a digital camera, computer, or projector are used.

Animation creation methods include the traditional animation creation method and those involving stop motion animation of two and three-dimensional objects, such as paper cutouts, puppets and clay figures. Images are displayed in a rapid succession, usually 24, 25, 30, or 60 frames per second.

Shōmei Tōmatsu is one of most sophisticated photographers in Japan.

His delicate pictures bring you to a a parallel world even being in front of your eye in a rude way.

In 1959, Tōmatsu formed Vivo with Eikoh Hosoe and Ikkō Narahara two magnificent photographers working in black and white mainly. Two years later, his and Ken Domon’s book Hiroshima–Nagasaki Document 1961, on the effects of the atomic bombs, was published to great acclaim. He had exhibitions in the main museum in USA and more countries.

The American invasion was an important aspect into his photography view, he was looking for that moment initially only in black and white but he fall in love with the colorful Okinawa once he arrived; colors in photography came in the 70’s, he refused to go back into monochrome.

Okinawa was a colorful landscape where he became alive until his dead.

Here some short video where you can appreciate his art.
