Mob-Entrepreneurs – Lonesome City: A Fine Art Book – KickStarter with David Ingraham

Share

We created our Mob-Entrepreneurs section many moons ago, this is a select area and we only choose to mention projects that we truly believe in.  It reflects the work of mobile photographers and artists who are pushing the boundaries of their talent into other areas. This could be workshops, app development, exhibitions anything that draws in others to our magical world.

This time we are featuring a KickStarter project by a very talented mobile street photographer, David Ingraham. He has created a book ‘Lonesome City’ that he describes as culmination of over five years of extensive photo-shooting in the streets of Los Angeles as well as other cities around the globe’. Ingraham goes on to explain that ‘this collection of images can be viewed as a visual meditation on the universal theme of urban isolation and disconnection’. I think that’s a theme that will appeal to many and can be the very reason that people spend time interpreting images.

Conceptualised and designed by the photographer, this book will be produced in an edition of 700 copies, printed in rich duotone on high-end matt paper with a printed-wrap hardcover. (75 copies will be made available as special limited collector’s editions.)

Ingraham has set a target of $22,000 and so far he has reached $7,555 of this goal with 92 backers and 23 days to go. Pledging $175 will result in one signed and numbered limited Collector’s Edition of Lonesome City as well as a custom-printed and signed 7×7 archival pigment print. There are plenty of higher and lower pledges available. If you would like to find out more about this project, please go here.

His images have been published and exhibited worldwide, and his editorial assignments and personal projects have generated seven books. Ed is a pioneer in multimedia, having worked in video and film for more than a decade. He has also been on the forefront of using mobile photography and the Instagram platform as a photojournalist on assignments and for personal projects.

Full Day Of iPhoneography Workshops For $99

Share

Join three experienced and frequently exhibited iPhoneography teachers at the Los Angeles Festival of Photography on April 22, 2017 for a full day of workshops for just $99! All three were featured in the book The Art of iPhone Photography from Rocky Nook Books (Bob and Nicki were the co-authors, and David Ingraham was another contributor):

  • Nicki Fitz-Gerald: Life in Layers – Creative iPhone Artistry: Join UK photo artist Nicki as she walks us through her world, pushing the limits of how we see through the lens of an iPhone; literally painting with light, creating impressionist photo paintings, the results of which are often cut up and combined with photos of marks, patterns, textures, shapes and text (all captured on the iPhone) to create her more abstract and expressive collage works.
  • David Ingraham: The iPhone Darkroom: Join photographer David Ingraham as he demonstrates how to apply simple-yet-effective darkroom techniques using only a handful of iPhone apps to achieve tonally-rich, tactile, ready-to-print black-and-white images, all from the palm of your hand.
  • Bob Weil: Creating Conceptual Art on Mobile Devices: Join Bob for a deep dive into one man’s creative process, and discover some of the tools and techniques you’ll need to harness your own creative muse and produce work that represents your own personal view and aesthetic vision.

‘Keep The Focus’ – Meditation Techniques for Street Photographers – Free eBook

Share

Many of us either try or do use meditation in our daily routines to aid our well being. Bringing brain and body together, in harmony, can help us deal with many things that we face each day. I need to practice it more, I know that many in our mobile photography community are huge advocates of it, not least our dear friend Carolyn Hall Young, who I know has practised it since she was 16 years old and it has helped her cope with so much. So, with that in mind, I was very interested to learn of this new free eBook ‘Keep the Focus’, which is a practical guide to help improve your street photography with three meditation techniques.

This project was initiated by German Street Photographer Thomas Ludwig and he has been practising meditation since 1999 and has been studying Buddhism since 2010 at the Tibetan Centre in Hamburg, Germany under patronage of HH the Dalai Lama. An array of outstanding street photographers have contributed to this project and include Mike Boening, Valerie Jardin, Eric Kim, Marco Larousse, Thomas Leuthard, Rinzi Roco Ruiz, Spyros Papaspyropoulos and Forrest Walker.

This free ebook is available in English and German.
