Photography is ubiquitous. Now more than ever before a camera is in the hands and pocket of nearly every American. Mobile phones allow images and videos to be produced anywhere and anytime. Images are made “on-the-go” and the subject can be anything the photographer happens to be in front of. Images are taken and made immediately, especially with the advances of smart phones and image editing ‘apps’. A photograph can be taken, altered instantly, and uploaded to the internet within seconds of its capture. No longer does the photographer have to carry around a camera bag filled with gear!
Even established commercial and fine art photographers like Mitch Eckert are beginning to use iphones and similar devices to make photographs. With the current technical quality available in mobile phones cameras, the phoneography trend is breaking away from mere gimmicks and becoming another viable tool available to photographers.
Mitch Eckert’s phoneography will be represented in roughly half the gallery, leaving the other half open for submissions accepted from the public. (submission deadline has passed)
This exhibit aims to show that quality, artistic photography can come from a mobile phone.
