Mobile Photography – TrueView Interview “Why do I Create Mobile Photography/Art?” with Jay Desind from Venice, Italy

Share

Having spent the morning with Jay Desind at Tate Britain, him in a cowboy hat and me in a fur (not real) coat, where he videoed me (more on that later) ;), I felt it only appropriate that I publish his TrueView Interview here today.

Our TrueView Interview section is an area where we ask one singular question, to mobile photographers and artists and it is captured to video. This time, we asked accomplished Mobile Photographer/Artist/Videographer, “Why Do You Create Mobile Photography/Art?”

Many artists are working on their videos right now and each video is as unique and individual as each artist. We are fully conscious and respectful that you are all capturing a part of yourself and sharing it with us and we love it.  Thank you.

Thank you for being a reader and viewer of our wonderful site. If you would like to view our previous TrueView Interviews, please go here.

Mobile Photography & Art – The Courage to be Afraid – Showcase for Carolyn Hall Young

Share

Recently, I set up a Facebook group entitled – The Courage to be Afraid – A Tender Tribute to Human Valiance with Carolyn Hall Young. Hall Young is our dear friend and hugely talented artist and many of you are aware that she is currently experiencing particularly challenging health issues. This group was made with love and is full of love from all the artists who have joined this group to create and share their images for her. I have complied each image into a film showcase, so that she can view all of them in one sitting (hopefully). When she is feeling more well, I am sure she will be able to vist the group and view all of your kind words in full (more so, than the space allows me to write the titles).

(Please do note, that I have gone through the group several times, searching for all the images for this particular showcase and I believe I have included everyone, if not, please just let me know and I will add you).

Many thanks to the following artists for creating these images for Carolyn:

Vicki Cooper, Claudia Contreras, Carol Wiebe, Mandolina Moon, Violet Martins, Catherine Restivo, Headattacks Crealitys, Kate Zari Roberts, Lorenka Campos, Eric L Raddatz, Andy Butler, Deborah McMillion, Roger Guetta, Carol Dogsitter Smith, M.

Mobile Photography / Art New Year Resolutions 2016 From Around The World

Share

New Year Resolutions have a long history, the Babylonians pledged to return borrowed objects and repay their debts at the start of each year, while the Romans kicked off January by making a vow to the god Janus (from whom the month takes its name).

As we have been repeating and updating this featured article now for several years, many artists have looked back and lamented at their broken promises but also as you read, you will see that many rejoice at the acomplishments that they have achieved.

In assessing my goals for the New Year, I don’t list tasks, I analyze the optimal approaches in reaching those goals, breaking them down into steps. I think we need to challenge ourselves – to stretch, purposefully, beyond our comfort zones. I make a plan, which includes a roadmap to consciously pursuing new ideas, and discovering possibilities. Each step forward, into unknown territory, emboldens us.

In 2015, I have watched us all grow, creatively, exponentially, in part because we build on a collective intelligence. Having a context, and a community, helps us know ourselves, better.

I’m excited to think of what you each will bring to this New Year. We have shared great energy, camaraderie, encouragement, information, and imagery. We have connected, mourned each other’s losses, and celebrated our victories, large and small, together.

Many thanks to our international community, to all those who have submitted artwork to TheAppWhisperer project, commented on articles, and spread the word about mobile artistry. Thank you to the extraordinary group of features editors who volunteer their efforts and expertise to make TheAppWhisperer a rich and diverse resource. As always, I am grateful for your friendship and support. You move me.

I would like to thank all the artists who have participated our New Years Resolution project this year. Everyone enjoys reading and learning more about you all and it’s a wonderful opportunity to share and rejoice in all your achievements and of course, to bathe in your glorious art.

Thank you, Allyson Marie, Andrea Brigiarini, Sylvia DeVoss, Marian Rubin, Marguerite Khoury, Alejandro Cendan Rodriguez, Illse Harris, Gianluca Ricoveri, Giulia Baita, Jaime Glasser, Albion Harrison-Naish, Maria Thiago, Ile Mont, Wanphen Sangkamee, Brendan O Se, Teri Lou Dantzler, Gizem Karayavuz, Maria Flourou, Bonobo Stone, Dani Salvadori, Jay Desind, Louise Whiting, Lee Atwell, Ale De Gangi, Jill Lian, Patricia Januszkiewicz, Carolyn Hall Young, Kerryn Benbow, Petyr Campos, Robi Gallardo, Kate Zari Roberts, Lisa Waddell, Deborah McMillion, Cindy Buske, Eliza Badoiu, Susan Tuttle, Ioannis Sidiropoulos, Michel Pretterklieber, Cheryl A Townsend, Elaina Wilcox, Michelle Robinson, Fiona Christian, Andrew Proudlove, Matthew Kayden, Candice Railton, Paul Brown, Brett Chenoweth, Meri Walker, Janine Graf, Ocean Morisset, Amy Leibrand, Karen Divine, Leinaala Mitchell Art, Jane Schultz,  Andrew B White, Juta Jazz, Robin Sacknoff, Vanessa Vox, Yulia Naganova, Alix Carmichele, Jim Perdue, Yoni Mayeri, Tommy Vee, Angie Lambert, Martin Durr, Riel Noir, Cecily Caceu, Ed Kriner, Cathrine Halsor, Dilshad Corleone, Diana Nicholette Jeon, Rad Drew, Rob Pearson-Wright, Gina Costa, Marianne Rieter, Gillia Brodie, Karen Axelrad, Christine O Sobczak, Mariette Schrijver, Claude Panneton, Lanie Heller, Bobbi McMurry, Tania Konnerth, Constance Rosethnal, Tina Rice,  Lrh Arquitecto​, Paula Broom​ Carlos Austin​ Armineh Hovanesian​ Hovanesian, Yoni Mayeri​, Ginger Lucero​, Mandolina Moon​, Jennifer A Thomas​, Jackson Mah​, Shirley Drevich​, Erika C.

Kickstarter – ‘Everyday’ by Jay Desind

Share

Take a look at this fabulous KickStarter by Jay Desind, in his own words: everyday is the culmination of a photographic and artistic odyssey that began when I bought a one way ticket to Singapore. My intent was to travel for about two months and then return home. 

I never made it back home. 

Over three years later I’ve traveled to over 30 countries and taken over 160,000 photographs. Two books of photography and poetry and an ever expanding audience on social media led me to the idea of producing a quality hard cover book.

This book is over 750 pages of photography and inspirational stories or poetry. Every photo shared in the book was taken and then processed on the iPhone…”. 

The target for this project is $15,000, currently Jay has been pledged $735, let’s see if we can help get that up.  To find out more about this inspiring project, go here.
