Disorienting Black-and-White GIFs of Dramatic Mexican Landscapes

The resurgence of the animated GIF over the last couple of years has given rise to any number of artistic possibilities, but few usages of the artform can be more impressive than these remarkable pieces from Mexican photographer Nydia Lilian. Her black-and-white photos of landscapes around the Mexican provinces of Chiapas and Oaxaca are striking enough, but they’re made even more so by these animations, which flash repeatedly between negative and positive images, subtly shifting perspective in the process. The results are dramatic and possibly seizure-inducing (and also a bit reminiscent of this.) We first came across them at Faith is Torment, and you can see more of Lilian’s work at her website.
