Amusingly Disturbing B&W GIFs Made From Historic Pictures


style=”text-align: justify;”>NYC-based artwork director and designer Kevin Weir has launched a collection of ghostly GIFs based mostly on historic black and white images depicting conflict scenes and portraits. The slow-paced GIFs catch us with disturbing surprises, scaring us but in addition giving us a darkish type of satisfaction.

style=”text-align: justify;”>Weir’s ardour for GIFs started throughout his grad college years and has been evolving ever since. To create his mystical and amusingly absurd black and white GIFs, Weir makes use of images from the Library of Congress online archive.
