“It only took a little to infect me with mobile art nine months ago and it felt magically surprising to enter the space of what’s called “the flow” everywhere I go.

I have a passion for the 19th century and steampunk-era as well hence I have a number of such images in my camera roll. I love mixing styles and so I often incorporate additional elements from science or nature to build surreal worlds.

As the entry point to “cooperation” I shot a drawing from a book by M. C. Waldrep which offers many illustrations of that style.

I always choose pictures to work with by intuition.

From the moment I saw the original image I had a special relationship to that illustration of a man. It is untitled and no information is offered. I called him John and this is my first cooperation with John in iphoneography.

John is an individual, mysterious precursor of a series I want to start. I don’t know him very well, but I come to learn more and more about him… 🙂

At first the original image was distressed, then mirrored with Orange Camera – which was the key to a huge transformation of this fellow.

An already blended nature shot was added in Union and I superimposed some geometric forms. The last edit I did in Snapseed to evoke some deeper vintage sentiment.

Yea, the process sounds somewhat technically, but I feel it wasn’t 🙂

The above mentioned flow struck me from the beginning. The picture evolved by itself.

It even took me quite some time to get together which apps I used in what sequence to create it.

Basically that’s it: I intuitively pick a source image *then some magic* et voilà!

John – I was delighted to make your acquaintance! And thank you for being so cooperative.

In this A Picture’s Worth today we asked Gillian Brodie to tell us more about her image ‘Decimated Vision’, one that we included in a recent Flickr Group Showcase.  Brodie has detailed her thoughts below, I’m quite sure you will enjoy learning more about this image.

 

If asked to describe my photographic style I would define myself as an urban/street photographer.

A subject I have developed an interest in is the depiction of women in urban art, along with the work of female grafitti artists. I’m working on a series I call “Girls on Walls” (The girl in this picture is by the Australian Street artist DEEJ).

I’m also totally in love with the medium of mobile photography – to the degree that my camera now sits sadly on a shelf and nearly all my work is shot using my phone (currently an LGg3) and edited either in my phone or on my iPad ! I’m very excited to be a part of the burgeoning world-wide movement that is the mobile photography community! 

When I take a photo I almost never see it as an end result, but merely as the starting point of my creation. Sometimes I have a very clear vision of how I want my image to end up and other times ideas come to me as I edit. I often do several, sometimes very different, edits of the same base image.

The past year has been a very difficult one for me on a number of levels and I have at times felt completely devastated. I have struggled to pick up the pieces & put them back together again so that I can move on with my life. 

The image “Decimated Vision” is an expression both of my pain and of my determination to not allow it to overwhelm me, but to put those shattered pieces back together in some form or another and move forwards.

While I have always loved creating images, it’s only recently that I have begun using that creation as part of a healing process and to express my deeper emotions rather than just as a visual statement.

I used the apps Snapseed, Oggl ( Tinto 84 lens & D-Type Plate film) and finally decim8 to create this picture.

Thanks so much Joanne for choosing this image for A Pictures Worth – it’s a special feeling to know that what I was trying to portray in my work resonates for others too!”
