Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 15 April 2018

Share

Urgently contemporary, this weeks mobile photography and art flickr group showcase is a huge thrill and I know all about thrills. This week I chatted with a friend, one I’ve not seen for such a long time. The most charming man, the most fragrant and also the most generous. Slipping back into rambling conversations about, art, photography and sex, we absorbed and absolved one another as we nudged the English language to its limits. Art as in life, is about desire and the mobile photographers and artists that we have featured in this weeks showcase, have satiated mine. There’s real humanity in this showcase, with insights into love and longing with the under current narrative, stimulating and deeply rewarding. Enjoy!

Print Sale Focus – ‘Rene’ with Helen Breznik

Share

We are sure we have reached many of you with details of our brand spanking new Online Gallery and Print Sales Website, if not, then you really need to take a look here and see it for yourself. The site has been optimised for both mobile, tablet and desktop computers. 

Today, we’re going to focus on one specific image from our collections and this is by Multi Award Winning Mobile Photographer Helen Breznik. Breznik’s photography leans towards the melancholy—but in Breznik’s hands, this emotion could be defined as ‘sorrow with a purpose.’ She utilizes her sensitivity to conjure up a romantic beauty in her images: images which are self-portraits but have a universal appeal within.

Breznik has always felt comfortable in front of the camera. When she is modeling for her portraits, she does so with music playing, garbed in fabulous vintage clothes. At their best, these sessions transport her to another world, one where her alter-egos can fully emerge. The characters are varied: a Queen will emerge, serene, royal, strong but with vulnerability. Or a figure drawn from the Pre-Raphaelites period, containing tragedy mixed with great passion and beauty.

Although the outward changes seem dramatic, she actually strives to keep make-up to a minimum. Her most dramatic way to change appearance is by sculpting natural light. With care, she is able to create deep shadows, strong lines, vivid contrasts, all of which create natural depth and definition.

Breznik first took up photography 10 years ago after picking up a bunch of old Polaroid cameras. She loved working with Time Zero film, which gave her ample opportunity to manipulate the images. When she heard about new smartphone apps which simulated Polaroid photography, she felt compelled to try them out. From 2010, Breznik began using the iPhone exclusively and her dedication to the boundless possibilities of mobile photography was settled.

Having used a variety of different tools over the course of her photographic career, Breznik concludes, “In the end it doesn’t matter what you shoot with…it’s the final image that matters.”

The photograph that we are focusing on today that we are offering for sale in our online gallery is entitled ‘Rene‘. We offer this image in three sizes, 16″ x 24″, 12″ x 18″ and 8″ x 12″. The prices range from US$140 to $282. These will all be printed on Fine Art Giclee on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag. This paper is one of our most popular papers amongst artists, illustrators & photographers alike. The paper gives muted blacks with even colour reproduction, and excellent detail. The surface has minimal texture with a chalky smooth cotton feel which creates smooth colour gradients. It has a delicate surface, so we recommend extra care when handling. Photorag is suitable for mounting but its cotton texture means edges can fray if not carefully handled.

In case you’re not familiar with ThePrintSpace, who we have partnered for our printing and despatch services, let me tell you a little more. ThePrintSpace are the UK’s most professional photography printers, that’s fact. You won’t get a better print shop over here.

When you view our prices at TheAppWhispererPrintSales, the printing prices have already been calculated, so the price you see, plus the £6/$8 shipping is the price you pay.

We offer multiple ways to pay for your prints, including American Express, Apple Pay, Mastercard, Paypal and Visa.

Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Group Showcase – 25 February 2018

I didn’t know I was even supposed to HAVE issues until I came to America”, a quote from a book I am currently reading – Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. A fearless contemporary construction about immigration, racism, American dreams and love. Adichie has the unique ability to meticulously and deeply humanise language, capturing a familiar plot but making it fresh. I read vast ranges of books, never fixating on a genre. I am the same when studying photography and art. I’m influenced by and interested in artists who break rules about genre. I’m interested in images with multiple levels that repay close inspection, ensuring I go to unexpected places. A coherent image makes me suspicious, I prefer faltering because it’s in those wobbles that I see the chafing and the uneasiness, the sketchiness of thought and vision. When viewing demiurgic imagery, I am intellectually and creatively and sometimes erotically wired. Constructing a book is similar to creating an image, it’s knowing what to include as well as omit. Allowing the viewer space to complete the construction, in their own imagination, constraining the compulsion of the artist to complete. Sculptors address the deletion of material in their own analogous way. Michelangelo: “The more the marble wastes, the more the statue grows”.

I am absolutely delighted to have been asked by Joanne to curate the page for the next 14 days ! One of the very first images that caught my eye when I logged into the account was this stunning picture by @nineacresdesignsart I love all the graphic elements in this image and how they have been compiled with such a sense of fun ! I love also that this pic started its life in the physical world, as a collage that was then brought into the digital world to have further touches added. A fantastic melding of analogue & digital”.

On day 2 @gilliannb highlighted this image by @joycoyle_nz – Joy and she writes @gilliannb here for @theappwhisperer Today I wanted to feature the truly beautiful work of @joycoyle_nz Her gorgeous NZ landscapes are really something else, and this one especially attracts me as it’s a scene I know very well ! I spent my teenage years in NZ and visited this spot more than once. This tree in Lake Wanaka is absolutely iconic & has been photographed many many times, but seeing it through Joy’s eyes is a revelation. Her unique vision & beautiful editing have transformed it into something fresh & new. I totally recommend a visit to her beautiful feed “.

Later on day 2 @gilliannb highlighted this image by @barbaranebel – Barbara Nebel and she writes @gilliannb here for @theappwhisperer Just a quick post this morning as I race off to work.
