Photographer, Mary McCartney (Paul’s daughter), with whom I used to work at a London photo agency said, I’m embarrassed to say that my main camera is my iPhone”. That’s not to say she doesn’t use 35 mm film, a Leica in fact, or a DSLR, even a Polaroid, but what she loves about her iPhone is ‘how immediate it is‘. Contrasing with Grayson Perry, artist confession, ‘the cameraphone has made the forest of glowing screens ubiquitous in museums, galleries and at events. Maybe I’m a snob, but it’s put me off photography’. We take thousands and thousands of pictures, every single day, do we treasure them? Some we do, each represents the power of time, mortality and memory, in essence, the power of photography. It’s very nature, evokes like no other art form, the split second, already spent…

Enjoy this weeks Mobile Photography and Art Showcase, a few minutes [for you], of time very well spent.

Just as a tailor sews secret messages into garments, the wise will know that everything that I do always has more than one purpose, reason and meaning. There’s not one interview, article or showcase that doesn’t reflect this throughout TheAppWhisperer.  My mind works in a multitasking constant, when viewing each Mobile Photography Showcase, as well as the order of the works, the music serves as a complement and also adds a surrogate meaning, to another event, always directed towards a chic other. And what you’ll notice from the swooning imagery in this weeks showcase, is a oedipal gothic romance, layered and layered with depth. It’s a tale of young cherished love, secret messages, with crisp visuals and a magnificent score. View it as a cinematic film, mobile art is on phosphorescent form here, capturing the delicate balance between the shifting moods. This showcase will capture your attention, engage your sympathies and steal your heart. Enjoy!

‘How to fail’ is a podcast series by journalist and novelist Elizabeth Day, whereupon she interviews celebrities and asks them to list three examples, demonstrating their  failures in life. Perhaps, not surprisingly, men somewhat balked at the idea that they’d failed at anything and when pressed, admitted to losing tennis matches, or the inability to get souffles to rise, whereas women confessed they had trouble limiting the list to just three failures. Naturally, my thoughts drifted to my own failures, where to start… trying too hard to find love as a teenager complete with ‘mistakes’…, not selling my first cottage before the property crash in 1990 when I was 21, progressing too soon with pregnancy following major liver surgery, I could go on, of course. Day explains “the only way to survive [life crises] is to surrender to the process”. Like Day, it dawned on me that I had my work and I am lucky because my work here at TheAppWhisperer, comfortably means I am never fully alone, I always have the most gracious company, by my side. And you’ll see them in his weeks’ Mobile Photography & Art showcase, a glowing example of true, dear artists. And, actually, when looking at my failures, I could also see my successes, which curiously ran alongside. Had I not been so starved of love as a young girl, I may not have met the man that I married, who worships, not only ever area of my physical body, but also my mind, he is my nourishment, he is my strength. Had I indeed sold my cottage in 1990, then I would not have had a place to rehabilitate, following major life saving liver surgery in 1993. Had I not become pregnant in late 1995, my dear son, Jake would not be here, with us today. The riches of life can sometimes only be learned from our failures. As Day who listed divorce as one her failures explained, as she folded her wedding dress into a box, wrapping it carefully in layers of tissue paper for the nice woman in Shropshire who had bought it on eBay realised, this wasn’t failure at all, it was a part of life, she had learned from it and now she was letting it go, the failure had departed, the creator had returned.

Enjoy this triumph of a showcase, each singular image has the capacity to provoke and to surprise, each one, full of life.

Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes Of Clint Cline

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the sixth in our brand new series of interviews within our Portrait of an Artist column entitled ‘Seeing through the eyes…’. This is a section that has been created by our wonderful Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont. Mont has been inspired by the life and works of Carolyn Hall Young, as so many of us have. Young was the main contributor to our Portrait of an Artist Flickr pool and filled it with portraits of so many wonderful people, not only of herself. It is for this reason that Mont wanted to create this section, to enable us to view the artists style through their own eyes. At the end of each interview, Mont will keep Young’s tradition alive, with a portrait of herself, seen through the eyes of the artist. In this case, you will see that at the end of this interview there is a portrait of Mont, seen through the eyes of Clint Cline, what a gift!

Please continue to post your mobile portraiture to our dedicated Flickr group, that way, Mont will search through these artists first to interview. (foreword by Joanne Carter).

All images in this interview ©Clint Cline and the final image is a collaboration ©Ile Mont and ©Clint Cline

I’ve been really excited this week because I have created a new interview platform within TheAppWhisperer that allows artists to answer the textual questions we ask, visually and the results have been spectacular. I have wanted to do this for sometime. As I explained elsewhere on the internet, my thought processes behind this format of interview are based on not only my life experiences but also on some of my professional qualifications. I have been surrounded my entire life by people who find communicating in a neurotypical way, difficult. I believe and have always believed that the onus is on the person trying to interpret what is being communicated, to understand. Just as a profoundly deaf person uses sign language to communicate with another, to understand, we also need to acquire it, so we can transcribe their thoughts and communicate ours to them. There is an integral part of our society who share difficulties with communication and because of this, many struggle with relationships and this hinders not only their own but also our life experiences. Many of you will be aware of Temple Grandin, in Thinking in Pictures, she explains “words are like a second language for me”. Many years ago, I shared an audience with her, a truly remarkable presence. I am not suggesting here, for one moment that visual artists are on the autistic spectrum, it is far more complex than that but I am aware that their images, portray their best chance of being understood. Therefore, if we are to truly embrace all of society, we need to allow them to communicate to us, in their natural default way and we need to think laterally and to re-skill. Language can be the barrier, it is up to us to lower the fence if we are to truly unriddle their psyches. When we enter an art gallery, rarely are we met with an oral interpretation of the images displayed on the walls. There’s almost a silence, with many people gathered around a painting as each of their brains scramble to decipher what they are viewing. It’s an observation that is fascinating to view and it is one that visual artists also find compelling, you’ll see many examples of this in our weekly showcase of mobile photography and art. The world needs all of us, we are all interested in art, the great mobile artists that we see here, in this weeks mobile photography and art showcase, are not so much theologians as brilliant analysts of the human heart.
