Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes of Maria Cecilia de São Thiago

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the second of this years series of interviews and the fourteenth of this fascinating series, within our Portrait of an Artist column entitled “Seeing through the eyes…”. This is a section that has been created by our wonderful Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont. Mont has been inspired by the life and works of Carolyn Hall Young, as so many of us have. Young was the main contributor to our Portrait of an Artist Flickr pool and filled it with portraits of so many wonderful people, not only of herself. It is for this reason that Mont wanted to create this section, to enable us to view the artists style through their own eyes. At the end of each interview, Mont will keep Young’s tradition alive, with a portrait of herself, seen through the eyes of the artist. In this case, you will see that at the end of this interview there are portraits of Mont, seen through the eyes of Maria Cecilia de São Thiago, what a gift!

Yesterday, we added Maria Cecilia de São Thiago’s work to our online gallery. If you have not viewed that yet, we strong encourage you to do so. Please go here.

Please continue to post your mobile portraiture to our dedicated Flickr group or use this hashtag on Instagram #tawportraitofanartist, this way, Mont will search through these artists first to interview. (Foreword by Joanne Carter).

Mobile Photography & Art – ‘Away With Words – ThAppWhisperer Assignment Book – Volume 1’

Share

Earlier this week we announced our first Mobile Photography & Art Assignment of the year. We are offering an opportunity for mobile photographers and artists to enter into a monthly assignment on a subject matter that we have individually crafted over a period of twelve months. At the end of the year, we will create a book, entitled ‘Away With Words – TheAppWhisperer Assignment Book – Volume 1‘.

At the end of each month, we will gather the images that have been contributed and select one for an immersive critique. I will personally write this with over 1000 words. Each critique will identify the elements, contextual meaning of these elements, interpretation and conclusion. Each critique will then be published not only on TheAppWhisperer, the world’s most popular mobile photography & art website but also throughout our vast social media channels. At the end of the year, we will publish a book featuring all of these critiques. As you can appreciate each critique will take some time to create well, so we ask, if you would like to take part to donate £10 per image that you submit (there is no limit to the number of images you submit), we feel this is fair. To do this, just select the appropriate allowance at the bottom of our donation section at the end of this post.

Our Assignment for January 2019 is entitled ‘Reflection’ – this can be interpreted both literally and figuratively, all entries are welcome and so far we have received some stunning ones. This assignment window will close on 15 February 2019, when we will announce the new one. To take part please send your image(s) to my email address – joanne@theappwhisperer.com and/or to Instagram with this hashtag #tawreflectionassignment.

Mobile Photography & Art – Maria Cecilia de São Thiago Joins Our Online Gallery

Share

We are thrilled today to annouce Award Winning Mobile Photographer and Artist, Maria Cecilia de São Thiago has accepted our invitation to join TheAppWhisperer Online Gallery! We are exhibiting sixty exclusive highly collectable prints of São Thiago’s photographs. Available to purchase for the first time on museum grade archival paper stocks in strictly limited edition print runs, of one print, per image size.

São Thiago’s photographs are exquisite and allegorical in nature. Their vitality is instrumental in pulling the viewer into a very intimate world chronicling the self and beyond.  Mysticism and spirituality have long informed São Thiago’s practice and she is refreshingly transparent about her work.  She once told me, “my photos carry in each of them everything that I have learned, what I have lived, and what I have suffered”. 

We have all brushed up against the sublime feeling of wonder, with sudden realisation that we do not know. Viewing Sao Thiago’s images enable us to recreate that emotion, allowing ourselves a bit of wonder, with the potential to forget what we think we know and to revel in the immediacy of the magic of her work, holding us close, as we unravel.

Influenced by two great Viennese modernists, Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt, it’s fascinating to view the concision and extremely intelligent images that São Thiago creates. Each as luxurious, immediate and above all, tender to the next. 

Each artwork is verified by São Thiago as well as the TheAppWhisperer archive. Prints are supplied on museum-grade archival Fine Art Giclée Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper and provided with TheAppWhisperer Archive certificate of authenticity to provide limited edition provenance. Limited edition prints accompanied by a numbered holographic certificate digitally signed by the artist in addition to the TheAppWhisperer Archive logo, providing limited edition provenance, particularly relevant should the artwork change ownership in future.

São Thiago joins our successful featured artists, including Christine Sobczak, Jane Schultz, Helen Breznik, Jill Lian, Gianluca Ricoveri, Lorenka Campos, Susan Rennie, Sean Hayes, Glenn Homann and Barbara Nebel.

Brand New ‘Assignment’ Section at TheAppWhisperer.com

Share

We are very excited today to launch a new section to TheAppWhisperer.com. We are offering an opportunity for mobile photographers and artists to enter into a monthly assignment on a subject matter that we have individually crafted. This new section is another ground breaking topic within our community. Like so many of the sections within TheAppWhisperer, this has not been done before, in this way.

Photographic images have reflected and shaped culture since the inception of the medium and this is non more so apparent than shown within mobile photography and art. The power of mobile art today is inevitably entangled with the diverse tolerances that cultures have in relation to photographs and the vast divergence within different cultures too. Over the past ten years of mobile photography and art we have all experienced great controversies in the world and still, they ensue. Mobile photography is inextricably linked to personal accountability and each member of our mobile community represents a force to relation to our continually changing cultural values, whether by challenging them or reflecting them; photography is co-creating them.

At the end of each month, we will gather the images that have been contributed and select one for an immersive critique. I will personally write this with over 1000 words. Each critique will identify the elements, contextual meaning of these elements, interpretation and conclusion. Each critique will then be published not only on TheAppWhisperer, the world’s most popular mobile photography & art website but also throughout our vast social media channels. At the end of the year, we will publish a book featuring all of these critiques.
