Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr/Instagram Group Showcase – 10 March 2019

Share

Why does anything exist at all? I’m an optimistic, don’t worry, but it’s a question which we all spend our lives trying, increasingly strenuously to avoid. Human life, is always held up against the massive fact of nature, impervious and indifferent to man. If we knew our exact end of life date, would we live our lives differently? When humans have brushed up close to death, they do live differently. I know that I do. I was lucky to survive at 24 years old with very serious liver tumours and luck really did play the main part in my survival. Consequently, I have felt on borrowed time ever since, I may live to be 101 like Dorothea Tanning, however it’s most unlikely, I have a short shelf life. But the great virtue of living to that age, is that you get lots of bites of the cherry, you can keep readjusting your career, keep coming back, keep reinventing yourself. This weeks mobile photography & art showcase is a colossal Kubrickian symphony of images, I am an evangelist for it, enjoy!  I’m off to Amsterdam this week for a few days, I’ll fill you in on that, post NDA, have a wonderful week everyone, keep creating, live everyday as your last, as I do.

Thank you to all the talented artists for submitting your works to our showcase this week.

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 23 September 2018

Share

I began again, after lovemaking, to experience the sense of heightened interconnectedness, which Romantic poets and Painters called ‘the Sublime.” Ah yes, another week and another book, this time ‘Vagina: A New Biography’ by Naomi Wolf, it’s not actually new, I’m just a little late to this particular party. So… yes, Wolf explains that during orgasm, she achieved the ability ‘to see ‘colours as if they were brighter‘. This was actually, until she started having a bit of trouble altogether and determined to pursue the matter, following a trip to her gynaecologist and then to New York’s finest neurologist, she was diagnosed with a mild form of spina bifida, essentially, her spinal column was compressing the branch of her pelvic nerve that ends in her vaginal canal. This was surgically corrected and before long she was back to her orgasmic best. Which is fabulous, what a relief but I was really more interested in straddling two worlds. Visualising art with increased creativity and sexuality. As I delved deeper, both these effects are well documented in scientific literature, hyper-sexuality results in an increase in creativity. Well, if Harold Brodkey’s ‘Innocence’ is anything to go by, as creative text morphs into creative imagery, yes, there’s sacramental beauty in all that we do, there’s deep joy, in fact the whole shebang is demonstrated in this weeks mobile photography and art showcase. 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 – Tip of the Day – Set Up An Alternative Face ID in iOS 12

Share

We are re-igniting our Tip of the Day section and we have a great one here that you may not be aware of yet. With iOS 12 it’s now possible to set up an ‘alternative appearance’ for unlocking your iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max or XR. Previously, only one facial id could do this. This maybe a useful feature if you need to unlock your child’s device, or perhaps if you share a device. Whatever the reason, here’s how you do it:

By the way, if you’d like to read our previous tips, please go here.

Instagram TAKEOVER with Marguerite Khoury (@artistunveiled) – Days 4 – 7 – As She Leaves Us

Share

For the past week Marguerite Khoury @artistunveiled, has been publishing three of her images each day to our Instagram feed and it’s been enchanting.

I personally asked Khoury to take over our Instagram account for seven days because I know there are few visual pleasures as great as admiring Khoury’s imagery when she’s on song. The best are beauitfully crafted, arcing across an expansive stretch of emotions. Khoury is gloriously unconstrained in her self portraiture, this body of work is one grand fervor, one that risks everything and its sweep is magnificent, beginning as an pianissimo, building to a crescendo, with both amore and fuoco empowering the finale. Khoury is a woman who gracefully and passionately allows her photographs to take the form of one’s life story. Her great skill is the tuning and preparation of her imagery allowing her final images to display the most impressively complex and deeply compelling characters. She allows us to connect with her work on a truly visceral, emotional level.

Huge thanks to Marguerite Khoury what a week it has been, thank you!

Today, we will announce a new Instagram TakeOver, again with a very talented mobile photographer, stand by for that!

To view the others, please head over to our Instagram account @theappwhisperer.
