From February to May 2013 I did my internship at the newspaper “Imagen de Veracruz”, located in the Gulf of Mexico. During these three months I designed and ran the CIG project, which consist of the production of graphic reports using a new type of image that I analysed previously in one of my papers for the Master in New Media and Digital Culture: The cinemagraph, the type of digital image that looks like a photo and “magically” comes alive.
