Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 5 August 2018

Share

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…

This weeks Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group Showcase is beautifully variegated with each image, slowly dissolving into the next. But this is no means a dillydally, this is sumptuous art that has been carefully created throughout the week. This art is bound by love, my love, “Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time; effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end”, wrote the Swiss author Madame de Staël (1766-1817). Enjoy!

Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @youmobile – Days 1 – 2

Share

We are so excited with our brand new takeover of our Instagram account. This is a period of celebration and recognition, we start firstly with the founding father of @youmobile, one amazing person with a subtle yet precise and sharp eye for the common day to day moments, Milan is his playground, and its people his subjects! This photo, however is different: his love for family is unconditional and here we can see it in first person, framed in a fable like surroundings, his family. Thanks for being who you are Fabio!

Day 2 continues with celebration and recognition this time The General of @youmobile, Luison, he has never missed one showcase nor a feature, with good weather or blizzard and thunderbolts, his post will be regular as a Swiss clock. I remember once he was intent in saving a man attacked by 20 heavily laser-gun-armed martians, as superheroes do, and yet while with one arm fending them off, with the other he was still posting on instagram for youmobile! Luison’s photos are a trademark, recognisable from far away, his eye catches the life of Madrid, it’s people and their behaviours! A beauty to see!

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.

We are so grateful to @luison – lrh arquitecto – Luis – whom we entrusted with our Instagram account for 21 days after he was gracefully handed the baton by @sunflowerof21 – Elaine Taylor. To view all the posts in the series, please go here. Or of course, head over to our @theappwhisperer Instagram account.

On Day 11 @luison highlighted the work of @john_nieto – John Nieto and he writes Cartier-Bresson introduced the concept “Decisive Moment”. Quoting Eric Kim “it is a split second of genius and inspiration that a photographer had to capture a certain moment. This moment is fleeting, meaning that once you miss that half of a second to capture that moment, it is gone forever. You can never recreate the same circumstances in terms of location and people”. The picture I feature today is a perfect example of the decisive moment. Half a second later, that black ribbon would not seem to be coming out of the woman´s eye. Great shot indeed. ~ @luison”.

On Day 12 @luison highlighted the work of @marczetterblom – Marc Zetterblom and he writes Anyone who knows my work knows that I love reflections. I love to see the world in a different way than our eyes usually see it. That’s the reason why I couldn’t help featuring this incredibly beautiful reflection by Marc. It’s really fascinating, I love everything in it. What a beauty!. ~ @luison”

Also on Day 12 @luison highlighted the work of @kallyklick and he writesScrolling down the hashtag #theappwhisperer I came across this pic of a headless commuter, and I didn’t doubt it, I had to feature it. I just love the main character of the image, the headless man, the light in it, and of course, the beautiful tones obtained by using the right combination lens + film of Hisptamatic. Simply wonderful. ~ @luison”

Later on Day 12 @luison highlighted the work of @polym – Marco Lamberto and he writes I started this takeover by featuring a pic by Fabio, the founder of @youmobile, a group of crazy mobile photographers I belong to. I would like to take advantage of these last two days to feature the rest of its members. I personally know two of them. I hope to meet the other two in the future. I shall start by featuring this extraordinary street image by @polylm . Perfect framing, perfect light on the woman’s face. He’s one of the nicest Italians I’ve ever met. Marco is my friend. Coraggio, Marco! ~ @luison”

On Day 13 @luison highlighted the work of @elizarealise – Elisabetta and he writes Another Italian friend and a great mobile photographer is Eli. I like very much the way she edits her images. It’s always a soft edit, with a smooth contrast. Nice and simple images, like the one I’m featuring today. I ~ @luison”

On Day 14 @luison highlighted the work of @italianbrother – Dilshad Corleone and he writes Time to feature the two members of youmobile living in UK, both very talented and extraordinary mobile photographers, and both using #theappwhisperer tag on all their pictures. Starting with this incredible image by Dilshad, one of the best portraits I’ve ever come across ~ @luison”

Later on Day 14 @luison highlighted the work of @sunflowerof21 – Elaine Taylor and he writes “I’d love to finish my takeover by featuring my predecessor in this task, and also member of youmobile, @sunflowerof21 and her alter ego @subflowerof21_365 . Elaine has two handsome sons who are also her best models. I love the way she photographs them, as well as the pictures she takes of flowers. Thank you, Elaine. I would also like to thank Joanne Carter for this wonderful opportunity. Curating the #theappwhisperer tag for the past two weeks has been an incredible experience, as well as a way to learn so much. Thank you, Joanne xx ~ @luison”

So, very sadly for us we have to ask @luison to hand over the baton to our next featured artist. We are going to miss him deeply but we do know that you are all going to be very excited indeed when we tell you who he is handing over the baton to next! Stay tuned!

Please keep tagging your images with #TheAppWhisperer if you would like our new featured artist to find your art and hope to be found and possibly featured.

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 13 May 2018

Share

One of the many things I love about curating, producing and publishing our Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Group Showcase is it offers me the facility to tap into these talented artists lives. Many of the artists that we profile each Sunday morning are extraordinarily prolific with their art and when viewing the showcase, each image doesn’t stand on its own, more so as together, context is all. The more you move among the pictures, shifting back and forrth, the more your sense of mobile photography and art deepens, expanding by the moment. All of these image take their part in a growing narrative, one we continue to explore. Enjoy!

Mobile Photography – StreetWise Winter 2017 / 2018 Showcase

“I love the people I photograph. I mean, they’re my friends. I’ve never met most of them or I don’t know them at all, yet through my images I live with them.” Bruce Gilden

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for submitting your images to StreetWise Flickr group for our ‘Winter Showcase.’

We were touched by the soulfulness and warmth of your photos – beautiful winter scenes (whether in tropical or snowy settings) of people (and animals) looking out windows, windows as frames, windows reflecting cityscapes, people in public transportation, carrying umbrellas, lone figures in urban landscapes and photos of people connecting hand in hand, or embracing one another. Even in the often darker, bleaker times of the winter months, when taking street photos can present a challenge, so many of your images captured what it means to be human – our fragility and our connection to one another.

We are inspired by this international group and it is our honor for Ilana and I to curate so many wonderful artists from around the world, and to ultimately, share the showcases with you.

Ilana and I find it very difficult to choose such few images for the showcase from all those that were submitted and we want you to know that we appreciate each and every post!

As a reminder, we choose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group’s intention and guidelines focusing on key aspects of street photography composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment rather than relying on too much aping or images that are more art oriented or painterly.

If you are a street photographer, please consider joining our growing community. To those new to our community, welcome – it’s great to have you join us!

Please continue to post your images to StreetWise Flickr group for showcase submissions:

https://www.flickr.com/groups/2750883@N25/pool/

Please note that StreetWise Facebook page is NOT for posting photographs but for sharing information/discussions, thank you!

A special thank you to Joanne.

We hope you feel inspired by this showcase and our wonderful group. Until next time, happy shooting everyone!

Many congratulations to the following artists for being featured in our showcase including:

Basak Aytek, Daniel Vondav, Donna Donato, Dina Alfasi, Paula Betlem, Carlein, Kathy Clay, Vanessa Vox, Mark Fearnley, Allyson, Susan Rennie, Armineh Hovanesian, Julia Nathanson, Isabelle Wolter, Marc Zetterblom, Ger van den Elzen,  Michel Dev1, Karen Axelrad, Michael Beresin, Laurence Bouchard, Paul Yan, Ocean Morisset, Christine Mignon, Myrna, Giulia Baita, Nick Kenrick, Luison, JH McB, Dixon Hamby, Valeria Cammareri, and Rene Valencia
