Mobile Photography / Art Exhibition – Freedom of Panorama in Paris – On Until 9th March, 2016

Share

Freedom of panorama is an exception to copyright, first introduced into German law at the end of the XIXth century. It considers that all artworks (including buildings and sculptures) located in the public domain can be photographed or filmed without the authorization of the author. France, Belgium Italy and Greece are the only countries in Europe without freedom of panorama in their legislation. In principle any reproduction of the Atomium, the Pyramide du Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower lights at night are illegal without prior authorization.

It is within this framework that the Mobile Camera Club in Paris has decided to gather photographers from various countries whose main photographic subject is the city and its architecture, to see how they choose to inhabit the public space. Do they take legislation restrictions into account or do they freely express their emotions? And how do they create something of their own, based on somebody else’s creation?

Do they feel they have to find innovative angles and framing, like their New Vision predecessors? Do they fragment and deconstruct, play with forms, colors and dimensions until they make reality unrecognizable? Or like the Surrealists, do they mock reality and appearances? Or else, in between collage and typography, do they choose to follow the track of a refined design, taking roots in the Bauhaus movement?

For artists, the city remains the place of all possibilities and an opportunity to present us the many unknown facets of an intimate and dreamlike city.

The following mobile artists are represented within this exhibition from January 30, 2016 to March 9, 2016; Leny Bagshop, Nadine Benichou, Lynette Jackson, Kristine Norlander, Joshua Sarinana and Tony Nahra.

Mobile Camera Club Presents ‘Outsiders’ – Exhibition Open To 28 March 2015

Share

We are pleased to publish news of this wonderful gallery exhibition at the Mobile Camera Club in Paris. It poses the question, “Is street photography almost exclusively the domain of men? All evidence seems to point to this. Firstly, look at the big names: Cartier-Bresson, Doisneau, Evans, Frank, Winogrand, Meyerowitz, Klein and many others. Andthe plethora of exhibitions and articles celebrating street photography where not a single piece bearing a woman’s name is to be found? So many male photographers, and yet just a handful of women? Are Abbott, Arbus, Levitt, Model, Franck, or Maier just exceptions?”

Of course we have our own very special Women’s Mobile Street Collection within our Streets Ahead Column, so we already know the answer to this.

If you’re passing by this gallery we recommend a visit, details at the end of this post…

‘Tiny Collective in Paris Show’ at the Mobile Camera Club

Share

For the first time, the international collective of photographers “Tiny Collective” will exhibit in Paris, at the Mobile Camera Club gallery.

Created in 2012, this group is composed of 12 street-photographers coming from all parts of the world, who elected their smartphones as their favorite tool to express their creativity.

It comes as no wonder if these gifted urban photographers are social media stars (they have a combined audience of more than 500,000 followers): they are indeed the true heirs of the XXth century photography artists who passionately documented the human condition, adding to it a touch of modernity, aesthetics and personal vision.

Always on the hip, they share the same incredible instinct necessary to seize “decisive moments”, they know how to use light and framing to tell a story and create a vivid and engaging imagery.

Each member of the collective will exhibit a big format image. Tiny members’ works will also be displayed on screen during the exhibition, through videos and slideshows.

Members of the Tiny Collective are: Markus Andersen (Sydney), Carlein Van der Beek (Toronto), Vlad Chirkov (San Francisco), Dan Cristea (Toronto), Cécile Edelist (Paris), Katarina Gavrilica (Zagreb), Crispin D. Giles (Toronto), Richard Koci Hernandez (San Francisco), David Ingraham (Los Angeles), Diana Lopez (New York), Wes Quarles (Atlanta) and Elif Suyabatmaz (Istanbul).

From November 20th 2014 to January 15th 2015, Mobile Camera Club gallery presents “TINY COLLECTIVE IN PARIS” its latest photo exhibition.

Opening on Thursday November 20th 2014 at 6:30pm in presence of 3 members of the Tiny.

Mobile Camera Club, Paris – Presents New Mobile Photography Exhibition

Share

Many thanks to Lynette Jackson, who we just interviewed in our latest Day in the Life Interview series, see here, for letting us know about this new exhibition by the Mobile Camera Club in Paris opening next week.

“One century after the futurist, constructivist and vortices’ movements, six photographers coming from different countries and backgrounds, equipped with their smartphones, question the reality and modernity of their urban environment. Sharing the same fascination as their predecessors for the graphic and geometric imagination that shaped our megalopolises, they use framing, perspective, photomontage or typography to show a world between visible and invisible, real and virtual.

These “image builders” intend to show us parallel worlds, to confuse our senses and present us other ways of perceiving reality, an augmented reality. “The conception that every individual has of the world is and will always remain a construction of his mind, and one can never prove that it has any other existence. “

Erwin Schrödinger – Mind and Matter-vortices’

The exhibition will run from October 16 – November 15, 2014 at:

MOBILE CAMERA CLUB

56 rue La Bruyère

75009 Paris
