Mobile Photography / Art New Year Resolutions 2016 From Around The World

Share

New Year Resolutions have a long history, the Babylonians pledged to return borrowed objects and repay their debts at the start of each year, while the Romans kicked off January by making a vow to the god Janus (from whom the month takes its name).

As we have been repeating and updating this featured article now for several years, many artists have looked back and lamented at their broken promises but also as you read, you will see that many rejoice at the acomplishments that they have achieved.

In assessing my goals for the New Year, I don’t list tasks, I analyze the optimal approaches in reaching those goals, breaking them down into steps. I think we need to challenge ourselves – to stretch, purposefully, beyond our comfort zones. I make a plan, which includes a roadmap to consciously pursuing new ideas, and discovering possibilities. Each step forward, into unknown territory, emboldens us.

In 2015, I have watched us all grow, creatively, exponentially, in part because we build on a collective intelligence. Having a context, and a community, helps us know ourselves, better.

I’m excited to think of what you each will bring to this New Year. We have shared great energy, camaraderie, encouragement, information, and imagery. We have connected, mourned each other’s losses, and celebrated our victories, large and small, together.

Many thanks to our international community, to all those who have submitted artwork to TheAppWhisperer project, commented on articles, and spread the word about mobile artistry. Thank you to the extraordinary group of features editors who volunteer their efforts and expertise to make TheAppWhisperer a rich and diverse resource. As always, I am grateful for your friendship and support. You move me.

I would like to thank all the artists who have participated our New Years Resolution project this year. Everyone enjoys reading and learning more about you all and it’s a wonderful opportunity to share and rejoice in all your achievements and of course, to bathe in your glorious art.

“How annoying is street photography when you have the elements you like but you can’t get them quite where you want them? That’s the nature of candid street photography I guess.

I don’t quite see myself in that genre though. It’s not a naturally comfortable environment. The candid street images I see are inspirational and so I keep plugging away but only when I’m feeling at ease. When people take it a stage further and start heading towards street portraiture then things really go way beyond my own style. The famous quote “If your photographs aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough” 1 never far from my mind”.
