The “Lightograph” was unveiled July 8th. Jeremy’s 1st NFT drops July 15th on Foundation. Scroll down to watch the 3-minute intro video.
NASHVILLE, TN: On July 8th, the “LIGHTOGRAPH” was unveiled via LIGHTOGRAPH.com, PetaPixel, and various social media channels. Its inventor, Jeremy Cowart, calls it the next evolution of the photograph. There is even a patent pending on this photographic innovation. Several examples are included here in the article, including the one at the end, which is of Jeremy himself.
“A Lightograph is the evolution of light through a still photograph. The end result is a digital video file, but there is no motion except for the light. For the first time in the history of media, it allows for a still portrait to tell multiple stories. A portrait can now reveal the multi-dimensional qualities or emotions of any person or persons based on how the light moves through the image. You really just have to see it to believe it.” ~Jeremy Cowart
At the time when this post was written, just approximately 24 hours since its reveal, Jeremy’s Instagram post about the reveal has had more than 19,950 views. Here is what industry leaders and media companies are saying:
— “This is some Thomas Edison sh**!”
— “I can’t stop staring.”
— “This is mind-blowing and beautiful.”
— “The future of digital photography”
— “Like nothing we’ve ever seen before.”
— “This changes digital advertising forever because eyeballs will stick on photos for much longer.”
Podcast hosts Matthew and Rizzle interviewed Jeremy about the LIGHTOGRAPH and other creative endeavors he is a part of in an episode of “The Matthew & Rizzle Show” released on July 7th. It is well worth the listen. You can find your favorite podcast platform link at their host site on Anchor.
Cowart will be offering a tutorial to other photographers and artists interested in being among the first to learn how to create Lightographs. You can access it on Jeremy’s Vimeo Channel.
