Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @iphoneartgirl Meri Walker and @dleibo – David Leibowitz – Days 2 & 3 the story so far…

Share

We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @iphoneartgirl – Meri Walker and @dleibo – David Leibowitz. Singularly they are hugely talented mobile photographers and artists but combined, they are a phenomenal force of mobile talent! We are so honoured that they have taken over our Instagram feed for fourteen days. This is what they have seen so far…

On Day 2 they highlighted a fabulous image by @armineh__mobileart and they write “Hello, David Leibowitz here @dleibo. My first pick of the day as I share the Instagram take over for @theappwhisperer with @iphoneartgirl. This piece by @armineh__mobileart caught my eye as a thumbnail and did not disappoint when large. I call “crazy great”!”

Later on Day 2 they highlighted this stunning image by @ange_ombre and they write: “@dleibo here for @theappwhisperer : This image from @ange_ombre feels like a production still from a Tim Burton movie. iLove the light, scale of the figures and it’s ominous mood. Epic”.

On Day 3 they highlighted @axelbergk ‘The Resident’s’ stunning image and they write @iphoneartgirl for @theappwhisperer featuring a recent piece by the talented painter @axelbergk. This one, titled “The Residents” takes me in for a looong look. The digital drawing and painting skills of this brilliant artist amaze me on a regular basis. If you’re not familiar with @axelbergk‘s work, do take a walk through his gallery here in IG”.

Later on Day 3 they featured @hipsta365_fernando and they write @iphoneartgirl for @theappwhisperer featuring this piece by @hipsta365_fernando. This Hipstamatic combo couldn’t be more perfect for this shot, IMHO. I feel like I’m swimming in so much that is anything but restful these days and I appreciate Fernando’s brilliant application of this combo to this scene”.

A little later on Day 3 they featured @mitrydate’s work and they write @dleibo here for @theappwhisperer : I’m responding to this image by @mitrydate on a visceral level. I’ve never visited this space, but it feels like I was there in another life. The foreground pattern might be something dripping but not sure what it could be. The person in the background seems to be praying. This feels like a picture of a dream, captured somehow”.

Thank you so much dear Meri and David it is our privilege to see #theappwhisperer through your eyes, it’s so good!

Please take a look at our @TheAppWhisperer Instagram account to follow all the goings on and please also tag your images with #TheAppWhisperer, so that they can be found and potentially featured.

Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Group Showcase – 4 February 2018

Share

The generosity of art displayed in this weeks Mobile Photography & Art Showcase embraces each viewer inside our cultured artform. Within each artists work there is a freedom of obligations, freedom of inevitability, each work has been constructed to elicit entirely what was desired. The liberation that comes from creating fast and loose whilst being observed is perfectly canny. Each frame communicates, illuminates and demands the freedom of movement, like free verse this is a wonderfully malleable collection that flows with a kind of rhythmic thinking. This is realism, raw truth that is underlined by artistic authenticity, as accomplished mobile artistis know, the real passion lies in reality itself.

Thank you to all artists for submitting your works. If you would like your work to be considered for entry in to our weekly Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group, please submit it to our dedicated group, here.

Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Group Showcase – 21 January 2018

Share

A work of remarkable cinematic scope, this weeks Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group Showcase portrays an unusual mix of qualities, combining powerful social realism with poetic lyrical resonances that derive from precise imagery and fascination with cultural observations. Revealing the challenges of life around the world right here, right now, at a time when women’s lives in particular are becoming substantially illimitable. ‘We tell ourselves stories in order to live’ wrote Joan Didion, one of America’s greatest essayists and that’s true, of course but in my mind, we create imagery in order to breathe. Enjoy!

Thank you to all artists for submitting your works. If you would like your work to be considered for entry in to our weekly Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group, please submit it to our dedicated group, here.

Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Group Showcase – 7 January 2018

Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties“, writes Erich Fromm, one of the most prescient thinkers of the 20th century. Love and creativity play a huge part of my life and it is physical. Love of art, the art of loving, irrational, intellectual, obsessive, insightful. Professor Semir Zeki, a neurobiologist at the University College London, proved in a series of pioneering brain-mapping experiments that viewing art triggers a surge of dopamine, the feel-good chemicial, into the orbito-frontal cortex of the brain, resulting in feelings of intense pleasure, the same part of the brain that is excited, when we fall for someone, romantically. For all of us associated with mobile photography and art, we already know this, mobile art is our fix just like illicit drug taking, we feel immediate stimulation and like a drug, our reward centres crave for more. I also believe it is not just the viewers but also the creators of mobile art, that reach for that high too. Love, like creatvity, requires courage, to let ourselves go, as Fromm described above. It’s fierce trust, it demands you put forth your work, without knowing an outcome because fierce trust knows that the outcome does not matter, it cannot matter. Keep sharing your work, each one of you reading this was born to create. Ask yourself, how fierce is your trust in that love? Keep creating, keep viewing, it’s our labour of love.

Thank you to all artists for submitting your works. If you would like your work to be considered for entry into our weekly Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group, please submit it to our dedicated group, here.

Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @lorenka – Days 6, 7 and 8

We are so grateful to @lorenka – Lorenka Campos, whom we entrusted with our Instagram account on 19th December 2017 for eight days after she was gracefully handed the baton by @armineh29 – Armineh Hovanesian, after she received it from @before.1st.light – Jane Schultz and after she received it from @lee_atwell – Lee Atwell, who in turn received it from our first Instagram Takeover artist @pyschephoto – Robin Cohen. 

On Day 6 @lorenka writes, “Hello IG friends, and Merry Christmas Eve, to those who celebrate. Today is day number 6 of my 8 day takeover of @theappwhisperer on Instagram. Today, I’m trying something new and posting one of my favorite video images by @clarisse_debout. It is a beautifully edited winter cityscape that stands on its own, but the addition of twinkling Christmas lights make it a little more special and festive. I hope you enjoy a few seconds of magic. If you don’t already follow @clarisse_debout, please go take a look at her amazing gallery. Thank you Clarisse for sharing your work. Please tag your images with #theappwhisperer for a chance to be featured”.

On Day 7 @lorenka writes, “Merry Christmas IG friends and family! This is @lorenka on day number 7 of my 8 day takeover of @theappwhisperer on Instagram. Today’s sublime feature is “The Red Chair” by artist @lydiacassatt – Lydia Cassatt. The image is straightforward, but mysterious, modern, but with an old world feel. Perfect contradiction. I love it @lydiacassatt. Thank you so much for sharing this image with us. Please remember to tag your images #theappwhisperer”.

On Day 8 @lorenka writes,Hello and Happy Boxing Day!!! This is @lorenka on my last day of my 8 day takeover of @theappwhisperer on Instagram. I thank Joanne for the opportunity and challenge. During these last 8 days, I have met a lot of new mobile photographers and artists, and have been blown away by the incredible images. Today’s feature image belongs to @joyundefined. As I scrolled through the images over the last couple of days, I stopped at this little feather, over and over again. The photographer/artist @joyundefined –  Joy Sussman writes “Why are we drawn to certain subjects again and again? A perfect question to end my 8 day run here on @theappwhisperer. Thanks again Joanne”.

So, with deep sadness for us we have to ask @lorenka to hand over the baton to our next featured artist. We are going to miss this wonderful artist very much but she’s always close by and we do know that you are all going to be very excited indeed when we tell you who @lorenka is handing over the baton too next.

Finally, dear beautiufl Lorenka, thank you so much for your care, your stunning curation and most of all, your company. Thank you x.
