Mobile Photography – StreetWise Winter 2017 / 2018 Showcase

“I love the people I photograph. I mean, they’re my friends. I’ve never met most of them or I don’t know them at all, yet through my images I live with them.” Bruce Gilden

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for submitting your images to StreetWise Flickr group for our ‘Winter Showcase.’

We were touched by the soulfulness and warmth of your photos – beautiful winter scenes (whether in tropical or snowy settings) of people (and animals) looking out windows, windows as frames, windows reflecting cityscapes, people in public transportation, carrying umbrellas, lone figures in urban landscapes and photos of people connecting hand in hand, or embracing one another. Even in the often darker, bleaker times of the winter months, when taking street photos can present a challenge, so many of your images captured what it means to be human – our fragility and our connection to one another.

We are inspired by this international group and it is our honor for Ilana and I to curate so many wonderful artists from around the world, and to ultimately, share the showcases with you.

Ilana and I find it very difficult to choose such few images for the showcase from all those that were submitted and we want you to know that we appreciate each and every post!

As a reminder, we choose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group’s intention and guidelines focusing on key aspects of street photography composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment rather than relying on too much aping or images that are more art oriented or painterly.

If you are a street photographer, please consider joining our growing community. To those new to our community, welcome – it’s great to have you join us!

Please continue to post your images to StreetWise Flickr group for showcase submissions:

Please note that StreetWise Facebook page is NOT for posting photographs but for sharing information/discussions, thank you!

A special thank you to Joanne.

We hope you feel inspired by this showcase and our wonderful group. Until next time, happy shooting everyone!

Many congratulations to the following artists for being featured in our showcase including:

Basak Aytek, Daniel Vondav, Donna Donato, Dina Alfasi, Paula Betlem, Carlein, Kathy Clay, Vanessa Vox, Mark Fearnley, Allyson, Susan Rennie, Armineh Hovanesian, Julia Nathanson, Isabelle Wolter, Marc Zetterblom, Ger van den Elzen,  Michel Dev1, Karen Axelrad, Michael Beresin, Laurence Bouchard, Paul Yan, Ocean Morisset, Christine Mignon, Myrna, Giulia Baita, Nick Kenrick, Luison, JH McB, Dixon Hamby, Valeria Cammareri, and Rene Valencia

Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Lynette Sheppard

Share

I am so excited about this new Interview section within TheAppWhisperer. A picture speaks a thousand words, so says the English language idiom and as this is a website by and for visual artists, we felt this section was long overdue. We asked a series of mobile photographers and artists ten questions, in text format and we asked them to respond in their very best way, visually and in their own style of photography/art, the results are unique and incredibly exciting.

To read our previously published interviews, with Deborah McMillion, M. Cecilia Sao Thiago, Christine Sobczak, Liliana Schwitter, Armineh Hovanesian, Lorenka Campos, Donna Donato, Eliza Badoiu, Juta Jazz, Susan Rennie and Kate Zari Roberts please go here.

Today we are publishing our twelfth visual interview, this time with Lynette Sheppard from Hawaii, USA, don’t miss it!

Instagram Mobile Photographers To Follow Now – @baljarek – TheAppWhisperer

Share

This is a relatively new section to TheAppWhisperer.com, one where we hand-pick highly talented mobile photographers and artists from Instagram and bring them to your attention. I must confess with this one, I have long been a fan of @baljarek – Jarek’s mobile photography and this morning, whilst looking through Instagram, the image (the first one I have published below) of these structures from Copenhagen, Denmark, inspired me. I am very interested in Architecture, as readers will have seen in my recent BBC article featuring this genre from the Mobile Photography Awards .  I was compelled with these architectural images, particularly as many harbour a human element and that intrigues me. Therefore, I am delighted to feature his artistry today….

BJP – Obituary: Frank Selby, co-founder of Rex Features, 1918-2018

Share

An interesting obituary in the British Journal of Photography this week, dedicated to Frank Selby co-founder of Rex Features, I found particularly interesting. During the rise of Rex Features, I was employed by London Features International in 1989, a paparazzi photo agency with offices based in London and New York and a competitor to Rex Features. We offered the same service to newspapers and magazines. It was a good time in my life, extremely busy, stimulating with a long line of friends and VIP’s. RIP Frank Selby.

Artistic Anarchy – Mobile Collusions is Back!

Share

Ooooh this week, the excitement has almost been too much (is that a thing?) but nevertheless, why limit ourselves? I am extremely happy to announce the return of our absolutely fabulous group Artistic Anarchy, edited and curated by Jaime Glasser and Jerry Jobe! Wow, what a cool team.

Artistic Anarchy: Mobile Collusions is a collaborator Mobile Photography and Digital Art group; each month we will randomly assign partners who exchange images and re-interpret each other’s vision through mobile Apps. Some of the best Mobile Photographers and Artists in the world are participating. We welcome your participation and look forward to seeing the incredible art that is being made. It is a wonderful experience to interpret an image in a whole different aesthetic than the artist that captured it. It is a great opportunity to get to know another artist and share in creating art with each other’s images. One of the intriguing reasons to participate is to experience having your image interpreted with an alien and surprising sensibility!

In this exciting new Column we will share experiences from participating in this group. We will have interviews with pairs of participants and get a feeling for their experiences and thoughts as they shared their images and edited each other’s art. We will have tips and comments on this collaborative process and highlight some of the images made and describe the work flow. We will also love to have your input and address any questions about the collaborative process. This is a collaborative community: Input, questions, suggestions and ideas to improve our experiences here are encouraged and appreciated!

Jaime Glasser has a cool algorithm that sorts and matches artists to one another, each month there’s a new theme and the best 10 images are featured on TheAppWhisperer at the end of the month. Originally we asked artists to post to our special Flickr group set up for this group, but we are open to discussion on this if you have any objections?

Our Facebook group for Artistic Anarchy is here.

Our column for this group on TheAppWhisperer, can be found here.
