Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Showcase – 23 April 2017

Share

When considering what is the most human desire of all, we know we have a lot to choose from. Think of the art of giving, every little nuance of slow, artful arousal and then think of the generous all encompassing multiple physical relief, release, the surrender…  Think of the mental, spiritual and physical emotion.   Perhaps, the most intense human desire, is the ‘longing to be understood’. It’s something we all want and it is essential to our psyche. This weeks Mobile Photography and Art Showcase demonstrates the longing to be understood, clearly. Each artists’ work stands out, each of their works portrays private desires as well as public obligations. Each image needs to be viewed with compassion and respect. This showcase represents a brilliant chronicle of the ambiguity and delicacy of mobile photography and art and its artists. This is a glorious showcase, deft, tender and true. Enjoy!

Mobile Photography Awards Sixth Annual Awards – Results!

Share

We’re delighted to reveal that the Mobile Photography Awards (MPA) 2016 Results have now been announced. As always we (I speak as a member of the Jury) were succumbed by the wealth of talent displayed across our screens. We’ve had more entries to this competition than ever before and the quality of submissions has been totally outstanding across all the categories. Personally, it was an honour for me to be asked to be a key member of this jury for the 5th consecutive year by founder of the Mobile Photography Awards, Daniel Berman and also to serve with James Bacchi, Annette Schutz, Evgeny Tchebotarev, Jen Pollack Bianco, Brendan O Se, Susannah Perlman, Stefano Fantoni, Sheldon Serkin, Andy Butler and Christopher Wahl.

Many congratulations to all the 2016 MPA category winners and honourable mentions and of course, a special shout out to the grand prize winner Giles Clarke. A professional photo journalist, born in London in 1965, he began taking pictures seriously in Berlin in the mid 1980’s. In 1995, he moved to New York City where he began an intense year in the Richard Avedon studio. A decade long career producing television for Channel 4 UK in Hollywood was to follow. In more recent times, Giles began the serious work & dedication of activism starting with a 6-week stint in Bhopal, India where he filmed & photographed the victims of the Union Carbide gas tragedy that still continues to haunt the inhabitants of that city. He scoops the grand prize money of $3,000.

I have listed every first prize winner, with their winning image as well as each and every runner up for all sections of this competition below. Huge congratulations to you all!
