On Day 1 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @dinalf – Dina Alfasi and she writes Hello. It’s @sunflowerof21. I’m over the moon to be taking over this account for the next couple of weeks. It’s an honour and a treat to share my favourite images from #theappwhisperer.  I’m kicking off my takeover off with this amazing image from one of my favourite igers: @dinalf. Her work is absolutely stunning – mobile photography at its best! Go to Dina’s feed and you’ll see exactly what I mean”.

On Day 2 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of our one and only Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont @ilemusi and she writes @sunflowerof21 here with my second selection from #theappwhisperer.

Head over to her feed to see more fabulous images like this one”.

On Day 3 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @lorenka – Lorenka Campos and she writes “Hello! It’s @sunflowerof21 here, sharing my third featured image from #theappwhisperer.Lorenka’s work always stops me in my tracks. It’s creative, emotional and expressive. The majority of her images include a human face, but I have a particular soft spot for her florals. I love this pretty delicate thing, dancing within the frame. Beautiful”

On Day 4 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @christinemignon – Christine Mignon and she writes @sunflowerof21 here with feature number four from the #theappwhisperer tag.I adore Christine’s work – her creative use of Hipstamatic (my first and favourite app) is truly inspiring. This image is one of my favourites from this year – I love the leading lines, the bold colours and those tiny silhouetted figures. It’s just fantastic!”

Please take a look at our @TheAppWhisperer Instagram account to follow all the goings on and please also tag your images with #TheAppWhisperer, so that they can be found and potentially featured.

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!

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.

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.

Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Clint Cline from the USA

Share

Today, we are publishing our eighteenth visual interview, this time with Clint Cline from the USA. Cline employs a technique within his painting that embodies religion, storytelling and abstract art. His paintings are powerful, mysterious amalgams of landscapes and unique craggy forms that elicit abstract shapes, symmetrically balancing powerful colour tones. Viewed in epic proportions, Cline’s work evokes an awesome grandness of nature. The imagery employed has the simplicity of a Shaker chair but the discipline, calmness and originality that radiates from his paintings, makes for the envy of many an artist.

I am so excited about this new Interview section within TheAppWhisperer. A picture speaks a thousand words, so says the English language idiom and as this is a website by and for visual artists, we felt this section was long overdue. We asked a series of mobile photographers and artists ten questions, in text format and we asked them to respond in their very best way, visually and in their own style of photography/art, the results are unique and incredibly exciting.

To read our previously published interviews, with Deborah McMillion, M. Cecilia Sao Thiago, Christine Sobczak, Liliana Schwitter, Armineh Hovanesian, Lorenka Campos, Donna Donato, Eliza Badoiu, Juta Jazz, Susan Rennie, Kate Zari Roberts, Lynette Sheppard, Debara Splendorio, Irene Oleksiuk, Davide Capponi, Vanessa Vox and Amanda Parker please go here.
