Artist of the Day : Nicolas Ritter

One is a series of GIFs by photographer Nicolas Ritter that hones in on the movement of a solitary subject. The creative mind behind the project says, “One focuses on the individual in a crowd. It particularly imitates the way in which the human eye observes: not viewing a crowd as a crowd, but observing little micro-scenes inside of it.” Like the cinemagraphs of Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg, Ritter captures an endless loop of subtle motion.

    What I find most inspiring about this Ritter’s work is that it reminds me of Picasso work during his pink/blue periods. Picasso’s painting during these times would be dominantly one colour, say blue, and then at times he would at the tiniest spot of pink to the painting, creating an augmented impact of the original blue tone than before, due to the suggestion of contrast. Here however Ritter has used ordinary GIF. images in a simple but effective way to portray solitary experiences, expressing individual nano-moments that are usually lost and overlooked within the busy hustle and bustle of our everyday cites.
