We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @coeiphoneart – Gerry Coe. Coe is an Internationally acclaimed Portrait Photographer, working in Northern Ireland known for both his Award winning Portraiture and his Fine Art images.
He is a Fellow of each of the four main photographic organisations including the British Institute of Professional Photographers, Master Photographers Association, Royal Photographic Society and the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and he has just recently received his Second Fellowship from the BIPP for his much acclaimed iPhone Photography images. This is the first time anyone, anywhere has achieved a Fellowship in iPhone or Mobile Photography. He is the first Double Fellow of the BIPP in Ireland and one of a very small group of double Fellows worldwide. Recently he was also awarded an honourary fellowship from the BIPP, this is a rare award only 20 of these have been awarded in the 140 year history of the BIPP.
“@coeiphoneart Day 12. A wonderful image by @susantuttle Susan Tuttle. In some ways this image is all wrong, woman at the bottom of the frame with half an eye cut by the frame edge but somehow it just works. I love the strong direct gaze. There is a light canvas texture and the added almost painterly textures possibly from a wall that has been photographed, all brought together to make a very strong image”.
