Family Polaroid GIFspiration

Artist and illustrator Cari Vander Yacht is slicing up your grandparents. Or at least their photos. Going one step beyond artists like Martin Parr who simply collect old family photo albums from attics and flea markets, the Amsterdam-based Vander Yacht is making her vintage finds into delightfully irreverent GIFs. Several of her best mini-animations seem to be from China in the 1980s, adding an extra layer of humor for those of us on this side of the Great Firewall. See a selection below, and more at her Tumblr.
