Mobile Photography – Portrait of an Artist – Thirteenth Video Showcase – TheAppWhisperer

Share

Welcome to our thirteenth Portrait of an Artist Showcase! This Showcase complements our Portrait of an Artist Column edited by Jennifer Bracewell. Every two weeks Jennifer will review and curate work that has been submitted to our dedicated Flickr group. In addition, to creating a showcase video which features a sampling of submitted work, we will also highlight a few images that have caught our attention… offering some thoughtful commentary about technique, composition and subject matter.

If you are not a member of our Facebook group… we highly recommend that you join us! This is our space for sharing newsworthy information and conducting discussions (what, when, where, why and how) regarding mobile portraiture and portraiture in general.

Please join our Facebook group for information sharing/discussions (link here)

I first want to apologize at the delay in my getting this showcase to you all  especially with the numerous fabulous submissions!  Hands can be so expressive and have played a role in the creative life of every known society. Our hands, complete with opposable thumbs, are vital in so many ways to human beings. As a tool, they are used as eyes for the blind, and voices for the mute. We wave hello and good-bye; in addition to a whole host of other symbolic hand gestures each with their own universally understood meanings! I hope you’ll all enjoy this wonderful showcase; there were so many amazing creations to choose from. Thank you all for sharing your work and being a part of APPArt!

Congratulations to our featured APPartists in this showcase:

Armineh Hovanesian, Mandolina Moon, Mariette Schrijver, Eliza Badoiu, hanakai2001, Susan Rennie, Jeffrey Simpson, doc simsim, Mansi, livenotonevil, Vanessa Vox, Diana Nicholette Jeon, Em Kachouro, Juta Jazz, Kirsten Fenton, Gillian Brodie, Deborah McMillion, Mandolina Moon,

APPart is an active and growing community of artists who create with apps, please join us!

Mobile Photography Interview with Amy Leibrand – ‘Confrontational Story-Telling’

Share

As many of you will know, among the assortment of hats that I wear, writing for the BBC and Vogue, I am also Contributing Editor to LensCulture.  I have a brand new interview in the works, which will be published soon and in the meantime, with kind permission of LensCulture, I will be republishing my work to our beloved TheAppWhisperer website – the most popular mobile photography and art site in the world. You can view the original post on LensCulture here.

Last week I published Lee Atwell’s ‘Angels in Streets’ interview, if you missed that, please go here. Today, I am publishing ‘Bursting the Bounds of (Mobile) Photography’, with Amy Leibrand .  I hope you enjoy this, Leibrand’s work is stunning. To view it on LensCulture, go here.

“I’m always looking for something to exaggerate, oversized lips or legs or the absence of flesh in a portrait. Some sort of odd composition or feature to make the viewer stop, take notice and (most importantly), ask questions.”

—Amy Leibrand in conversation with LensCulture Contributing Editor, Joanne Carter

Photography & Art – Tickle Your Fancy #47

Share

Welcome back to our forty seventh post in our new section Tickle Your Fancy. Tickle Your Fancy’ includes a round-up of between three to five links to articles from around the internet that have specifically interested us during the course of the week. Ones that we feel are relevant to your interest in photography and art.

Just to explain the title for this section ‘Tickle Your Fancy’ is an English idiom and essentially means that something appeals to you and perhaps stimulates your imagination in an enthusiastic way, we felt it would make a great title for this new section of the site.

We really hope you enjoy these articles over the weekend…
