Artist Yorgo Alexopoulos Breathes Life and Movement Into Still Images

One of Yorgo Alexopoulos' claims to fame is being responsible for the now uniquitous photographic effect used in documentary The Kid Stays in the Picture. Since then he has used and honed that technique in his own art.

Says Alexopoulos to The Creators Project, "You can hypnotize the audience with just a still image. Using The Kid Stays in the Picture technique, which is basically creating a parallax on the photograph and creating spatial dimensionality out of it, you can create subtle nuances in the still image to create this three-dimensional effect. For me it was a huge epiphany because I realized that in doing this effect in my own images, I could start to create narrative artworks that then express what my interests are as an artist."
