Storytelling through (almost) just photography

PetaPixel on the Paul Harvey Super Bowl “Farmer” ad:

One of standout commercials during the Super Bowl yesterday was the above ad by Chrysler promoting its Dodge Ram line of trucks. The 2-minute ad pays tribute to farmers across the nation, and is composed entirely of photographs showing various facets of the farming industry.

Note that the images aren’t entirely static. Watch for bits of parallax, clouds that stream by, particles that float, and more. I love that kind of subtle enlivening, creating something in the cinemagram vein (not quite a photo, not exactly video).

    I w up listening to Paul Harvey and wouldn’t miss his broadcasts for anything. I was so touched and happy to see that the rest of the world got to hear the voice and the writing of a very great man. He had a way with words, phrasing, pacing and delivery which was akin to nothing I have heard since. He had a rapid fire, witty, much like George Carlin, manner which made you hang on to every word and then stop and savor a single word. Thank you RAM for recognizing his greatness, his truth and position on life.
