Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @cawestruck – Carol Wiebe – Day 7 – the story so far…

Share

We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @cawestruck – Carol Wiebe. She is a highly respected and talented artist and has been granted full access to our Instagram account and she has done such a magnificent job. We are very proud of her! Please take a look at her Instagram feed to see what an incredible artist she is.

On Day 7 @cawestruck highlighted the work of talented mobile photographer and artist @theartofmayte and she writes, It is my pleasure to highlight this image by @theartofmayte. The image has a futuristic look, as if an Artificial Intelligence has decorated its “skin” with beautiful designs, and is staring out into the cosmos. @theartofmayte likes to experiment with a wide range of images, from the natural world (trees, flowers, animals), to manmade objects (especially architecture) but her major focus is faces. Whatever her subject matter, this artist loves saturated color, dramatic lighting and a touch of the surreal”.

Later on Day 7 @cawestruck felt compelled to highlight @theartofmayte’s latest work and it’s not surprising, this is what she writes I am jumping right back in with another work by @theartofmayte. This image just came throught the Instagram feed and it is another example of Mayte’s photo mastery. She takes facial liberties, as artists are wont to do, but it is unmistakingly face with all kinds of textural and design details to find pleasure in as you study it”

A little later on Day 7 @cawestruck highlighted @marietteschrijver’s – Mariëtte Schrijver’s  very fine work and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight “A horse is a horse, of course“ by @marietteschrijver. How could I not choose this image with its oh so clever distortion, done to such perfection? That hump in the neck is just wrong, and its face has the look of bone, and the mane is weirdly crimped but . . . . you still know it’s a horse. The question is, would you still want to ride it?”.

As if things couldn’t get better on Day 7, then @cawestruck highlighted @harkinjoyce’s – Joyce Harkin’s fabulous mobile art and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight this image by Joyce Harkin, aka @harkinjoyce. Joyce is a prolific digital artist who says she needs assistance to help her STOP making digital art. At the risk of sounding hard hearted, I am hoping her pleas go unheeded because we would miss out on images like this one. I love the bold colors, and the suggestion of a figure, with its missing neck. Perhaps this woman is too much in her head: the connection to her body is unnecessary. The brilliant red architecture behind the figure forms a dramatic backdrop with its hard lines and smooth surfaces, except for that scribble, which makes you try to read it for clues as to what is going on here. All in all, the image suggests an intriguing story”.

And then @cawestruck discovered the mystical and hugely talented world of @liliaschwitter  – Liliana Schwitter and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight “into the Light” by @lilaschwitter. Such arresting editing has gone into this image. You know there is a couple, and you think that may be fear in the gentleman’s eyes, or perhaps just concern, but you really do not know why the woman appears to be falling over. Is she sick, about to faint, laughing so that she can hardly stand up? In any case, we see multiple versions of hands, as if propping up is definitely needed and from various vantage points. Oh, and there are very many buttons on the woman’s torso. Perhaps her partner has been pushing a lot of them? Nor are we clear about the surroundings. All we know is the direction in which this couple is headed, straight for us, and we want to help, or at least hear the story that is playing out. But if the look on his face is any indication, we will not be trusted with that story unless they do not have a mobile device at hand and he needs to make a call, quickly. Luckily, ours is charged and ready”.

Thank you so much dear Carol, it is our privilege to see #theappwhisperer through your eyes, it’s so good.

Like all of these artists, please continue to tag your images on Instagram with #theappwhisperer in the hope to being selected and featured!

We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @cawestruck – Carol Wiebe. She is a highly respected and talented artist and has been granted full access to our Instagram account and she has done such a magnificent job. We are very proud of her! Please take a look at her Instagram feed to see what an incredible artist she is.

On Day 1 @cawestruck highlighted the work of talented mobile photographer and artist @elizabadiou – Eliza Badoiu and she writes This is Carol Wiebe, @cawestruck, on Day 1 of my IG takeover, and I have chosen this subtle, textured, oh so feminine image as pic of the day! Whether that is a suggestion of the moon I see, or not, I am over the moon about this pic!”.

Also, on Day 1 @cawestruck also highlighted the work of accomplished mobile photographer and artist @marrietteschrijver and she writes “IG takeover by @cawestruck—Python is both a snake and a programming language, which makes this clever image by @marrietteschrivjer doubly appealing”.

On Day 2 (so far) @cawestruck highlights the work of adept mobile photographer @badgrowshop and she writes “today’s pic of the day is this moving image created by James Ellis. Ellis excels in complex layering of faces with places. The sentiment expressed here that of leaving a loser town, which sounds angry, but the expression on the face of the subject exudes disappointment and sadness. He is the one who has been abandoned. That yellow line is headed straight out into the unknown, and as we all know, a double yellow line is dangerous to cross”.

Thank you so much dear Carol, it is our privilege to see #theappwhisperer through your eyes, it’s so good.

Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Showcase – 21 May 2017

Share

Have you ever written or received a hand written love letter? I grew up writing and reading letters, they were an important part of life. The letters I received were mostly not from other English loves but from elsewhere around the world. Could it be the French, Spanish, Italian, Americans are more romantic? Or could it be that corresponding with people in other counties created greater infatuation? It’s far quicker and easier to breeze through an email but it never feels the same, as receiving a scented handwritten letter. Nostalgia about letter writing is nothing new. Whenever a cultural form starts to die, people start celebrating it, think vinyl records, polaroid photographs, 35 mm film. Scent is a crucially important sense in humans, darkroom smells are omnipresent with me. It’s not a fetish but what is it? What do we all hanker for? It’s love, Erich Fromm expressed Modern man thinks he loses something – time – when he does not do things quickly. Yet he does not know what to do with the time he gains, except kill it” and it’s true. Whilst ‘saving’ time, give what you gain to your loves, grow your love, develop it and share it. Art, writing, painting, photographing, making love, teaches us to be more than just towards ourselves as we endeavour to make the best of our circumstances. Keep forever in mind the real ingredients of fulfilment, do not lose sight of the value of everything that is to hand. Trust more in your ideas and feelings than objects. Above all, remember to love and to care. Enjoy the beauty of existence. Have courage, to keep loving, you’ll never regret loving and being loved.
