Photographer Stages Playful Scenes to Bring Everyday Things to Life


Cameras on Vacation

Animated Photography” is an ongoing project by photographer ErAn Croitoru, who stages and shoots creative scenes with everyday objects that turn them into living creatures.

“This project is for the silent objects in all of our lives,” Croitoru writes, “the things we use and leave in the background.”

Some of the photos clearly have a good amount of Photoshop editing behind them, but others are simply the result of some simple tricks during the photo shoot.
