Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 11 November 2018

Why Women Have Better Sex Under Socialism‘ what perfect timing, if you pardon the pun. Kristen R Ghodsee has published a thoroughly researched exploration proclaiming that capitalism is bad for women.  She argues, adopting some ideas from socialism  ‘women will have better lives’ and of course, this includes sex. Ghodsee, an acclaimed ethnographer and professor of Russian and East European Studies, spent years researching what happened to women in countries that transitioned from state socialism to capitalism. In this book, she analysed many facets of a woman’s life – work, parenting, sex and relationships, community and authority. One chapter, entitled “Women: Like Men, But Cheaper,” she discusses women in the workplace, deliberating all things from wage gaps to harassment and discrimination. In “What To Expect When You’re Expecting Exploitation,” she addresses motherhood and how “having it all” is impossible under capitalism. With regards ‘better’ sex, naturally it is hard to substantiate, many cultural factors come into play but what’s interesting is her theory that less inequity decommodifies sex, undermining the odious theory of ‘sexual economics’ as she describes, whereby, women raise the ‘price’ of sex by denying it. She explains “in societies with high levels of gender equality, with strong protections for reproductive freedom, and with large social safety nets, women almost never have to worry about the price their sex will fetch on an open market.” As we are increasingly told this is ‘the year of women’ which I find patronising and as we do rise up and speak out against abusive relationships and gain increased support to leave, perhaps this is enabling sexual freedom? In these trying times, she ends the book with “we can share our attentions without quantifying their value, giving and receiving rather than selling and buying.” It struck me, as I read this book, how much the latter sentence I shared co-relates with our mobile photography and art community. How much we give to each other, how much we share, how much we embrace one another and how much we realign our own art society ensuring that each one of us feels equal to the other. This much we do know and it’s clear to see in this weeks Flickr Group Mobile Photography and Art Showcase, enjoy!

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 28 October 2018

Life is an enactment, art the outward manifestation of the scenes performed on an inner stage and no greater is this portrayal witnessed than in this weeks Mobile Photography and Art Showcase. Consciously desexed, I am somewhat a phenomenolgist as I curate each week. Infilitrating the discrepancies between reasoning and imagination, demanding the subjectivity of the objectiveness of each work of art, I invite all viewers to experience the anteriority of mobile art; the power, the strength and the hauntingly honesty of this new movement of art. As Emily Dickinson, whom I have been reading this week, knew, the truth that underlies all art is an apocalyptic yearning for ecstasy, the aura of euphoria is here. Enjoy!

New Projects – Our New Form of Artistic Installation aka ‘The Quilt’ Is Ready!

Share

We’re delighted to inform our readers that the quilt that so many of you contributed to, has now been completed. For those of you not aware of this project, it involved mobile artists contributing one image and each one was then carefully included within a large quilt to be displayed at the next gallery show or even Mobile Arts Festival. There has been a few obstacles along the way and we have overcome each one. This quilt was sewed together and finalised by none other than mobile artist, Lorenka Campos’ mother in law. We all owe her much gratitude. The quilt is now with Lorenka Campos, so if you would like to display it at your next event, please contact her for details.

I have also been reminded and I shouldn’t have needed to be however, “Linda Toki did the whole layout of the quilt and had it printed. She also spent days working on the catalog so I really think she deserves a shout out as the quilt would never have happened without her”. We all need to give huge thanks to Linda M. Toki – join me!!

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 19 August 2018

A choreographed multimedia showcase devised with over thirty of the very best mobile photographers and artists from around the world today. This week we bring you an intense mystical piece, one that forcefully confronts our frailty, as we lurch poleaxed by grief from one image, only to be reanimated with cryptic, expressionistic neoclassical, to the next. Viewing this is a raw process, as is our capacity to create a new life and redefine what an artist means, simultaneously navigating modern life and all of its entails…Enjoy!

Just as a tailor sews secret messages into garments, the wise will know that everything that I do always has more than one purpose, reason and meaning. There’s not one interview, article or showcase that doesn’t reflect this throughout TheAppWhisperer.  My mind works in a multitasking constant, when viewing each Mobile Photography Showcase, as well as the order of the works, the music serves as a complement and also adds a surrogate meaning, to another event, always directed towards a chic other. And what you’ll notice from the swooning imagery in this weeks showcase, is a oedipal gothic romance, layered and layered with depth. It’s a tale of young cherished love, secret messages, with crisp visuals and a magnificent score. View it as a cinematic film, mobile art is on phosphorescent form here, capturing the delicate balance between the shifting moods. This showcase will capture your attention, engage your sympathies and steal your heart. Enjoy!

Urgently contemporary, this weeks mobile photography and art flickr group showcase is a huge thrill and I know all about thrills. This week I chatted with a friend, one I’ve not seen for such a long time. The most charming man, the most fragrant and also the most generous. Slipping back into rambling conversations about, art, photography and sex, we absorbed and absolved one another as we nudged the English language to its limits. Art as in life, is about desire and the mobile photographers and artists that we have featured in this weeks showcase, have satiated mine. There’s real humanity in this showcase, with insights into love and longing with the under current narrative, stimulating and deeply rewarding. Enjoy!

We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @coeiphoneart – Gerry Coe. Coe is an Internationally acclaimed Portrait Photographer, working in Northern Ireland known for both his Award winning Portraiture and his Fine Art images.

He is a Fellow of each of the four main photographic organisations including the British Institute of Professional Photographers, Master Photographers Association, Royal Photographic Society and the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and he has just recently received his Second Fellowship from the BIPP for his much acclaimed iPhone Photography images. This is the first time anyone, anywhere has achieved a Fellowship in iPhone or Mobile Photography. He is the first Double Fellow of the BIPP in Ireland and one of a very small group of double Fellows worldwide. Recently he was also awarded an honourary fellowship from the BIPP, this is a rare award only 20 of these have been awarded in the 140 year history of the BIPP.

Please take a look at our @TheAppWhisperer Instagram account to follow all the goings on and please also tag your images with #TheAppWhisperer, so that they can be found and potentially featured.

He writes:

“@coeiphoneart Day 6, today’s choice is an image by @odinvadim – Vadim Demjianov. This snow scene looks like a Victorian postcard. It has been beautifully captured with a lovely soft light coming across the scene. To my eye there has been very little manipulation of the image apart I suspect the warm glow. I think this shows you don’t need lots of extra textures to have a great photograph. Well done.

@coeiphoneart Day7 street portraits are always popular and this one by @ilanaakoundi – Ilana Akoundi intrigues me I love the play of shadows on the wall. The added bonus is the person walking across the scene who has his hand up as if shading his eyes.

@coeiphoneart Day 8. Fascinating image by @dleibo  – David Scott Leibowitz, so many stories and questions. The woman in the white dress helping her child climb around the wall, the guitar is it hers or does it belong to someone else we can’t see. The photographer is she taking a picture of them, or of the building. The woman sitting at the top of the steps, is she counting her money or sorting out things in her bag? And the man walking into the scene. A superb image.

@coeiphoneart Day 9 A superb monochrome image by @allophile_ – Joseph Cyr, I love the textures and strong lighting. The footprints coming across the picture breaking up the pattern in the sand where they meet up with the shadow which brings your eye back to the tufts of grass, then you start the journey again. A simple image but full of drama”.
