The Infinite Now

Australian coal miner-turned-photographer Ray Collins' ocean imagery is mesmerizing. He’s worked with artist Armand Dijcks to re-imagine some of his best-known stills as cinemagraphs, a blend between photography and video.
These cinemagraphs inspired André Heuvelman from the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra to collaborate with pianist Jeroen van Vliet on a custom soundtrack.

Timgad, the African Pompeii

The city of Timgad, in today’s Algeria, was founded as a military settlement by Emperor Trajan around AD 100. The ruins of the city were well preserved under the sands of the Sahara and were excavated for the first time in 1881. The city is noteworthy for representing one of the best extant examples of the grid plan as used in Roman city planning. Timgad was inscribed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982.
