We are extremely proud to announce that Gianluca Ricoveri @gricoveri from Pisa, Italy, has accepted our invitation to takeover our Instagram account for the next seven days. Ricoveri is a multi-award winning mobile photographer and one that we represent exclusively within our Online Gallery, see here. Ricoveri’s mobile photography is the concrete embodiment of love, it is what lovers create. Ricoveri’s art is superbly accomplished, it fulfils and there’s something overwhelmingly spiritual about his work. It tugs us forward, yearning for more, suspended in passion with revelations to its hurricane climax.

Gianluca Ricoveri was born in 1950, he has always been devoted to the art of painting and photography and experiencing the interaction of one genre with another.

Each day, Ricoveri will publish three of his own images to our Instagram feed- @theappwhisperer and we can’t wait to view them!

Take a look at our Instagram feed, here, to follow all that he publishes!

Instagram TAKEOVER with Mark Fearnley @mark.fearnley from London – Days 1 – 7 – As He Leaves Us…

Share

I personally asked London based mobile street photographer, Mark Fearnley to take over our Instagram account for seven days because he’s what I would describe as ‘a hardcore street photographer’. Fearnley’s street photography illustrates ideas, his deployment of the art, on the fertile ground he finds in London, represents the vibrant period that street photography is receiving here in Britain today. This body of work demonstrates a purity of vision, as he works in a typically British, understated way. He doesn’t intrude, so much as observe his subjects, operating on a peripheral borderland. His style of street photography is the polar opposite of street photographer Helen Levitt, not least that the majority of Fearnley’s work is black and white as opposed to Levitt’s pioneering colour photography. Nor is it similar to Vivian Maier’s street photography, there’s no glamorous women shopping, there’s no eye contact with his subjects. What there is, is an almost architectural view of street photography, with dynamic diagonal lines, silhouettes. puddle reflections, condensation perspectives through glass doors. Fearnley is a disrupter of street photography with complexity and range throughout his imagery running alongside a narrative. These stories translate into matter and space, they reach out and grab you, once seen, not forgotten. Huge thanks to Mark Fearnley what a week it has been, thank you!

Today, we will announce a new Instagram TakeOver, again with a very talented mobile photographer, stand by for that!

To view the others, please head over to our Instagram account @theappwhisperer.

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 23 September 2018

Share

I began again, after lovemaking, to experience the sense of heightened interconnectedness, which Romantic poets and Painters called ‘the Sublime.” Ah yes, another week and another book, this time ‘Vagina: A New Biography’ by Naomi Wolf, it’s not actually new, I’m just a little late to this particular party. So… yes, Wolf explains that during orgasm, she achieved the ability ‘to see ‘colours as if they were brighter‘. This was actually, until she started having a bit of trouble altogether and determined to pursue the matter, following a trip to her gynaecologist and then to New York’s finest neurologist, she was diagnosed with a mild form of spina bifida, essentially, her spinal column was compressing the branch of her pelvic nerve that ends in her vaginal canal. This was surgically corrected and before long she was back to her orgasmic best. Which is fabulous, what a relief but I was really more interested in straddling two worlds. Visualising art with increased creativity and sexuality. As I delved deeper, both these effects are well documented in scientific literature, hyper-sexuality results in an increase in creativity. Well, if Harold Brodkey’s ‘Innocence’ is anything to go by, as creative text morphs into creative imagery, yes, there’s sacramental beauty in all that we do, there’s deep joy, in fact the whole shebang is demonstrated in this weeks mobile photography and art showcase. Enjoy!

Mobile Photography & Art – Tip of the Day – Set Up An Alternative Face ID in iOS 12

Share

We are re-igniting our Tip of the Day section and we have a great one here that you may not be aware of yet. With iOS 12 it’s now possible to set up an ‘alternative appearance’ for unlocking your iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max or XR. Previously, only one facial id could do this. This maybe a useful feature if you need to unlock your child’s device, or perhaps if you share a device. Whatever the reason, here’s how you do it:

By the way, if you’d like to read our previous tips, please go here.
