Flickr Group Showcase – January 13, 2012 – Mobile Photography & Imagery

We have put together a very special Flickr group showcase , our second of 2013 with some of our favorite images submitted this week. The quality of submissions continues to rise every week, so we have decided to make our showcases that much bigger to incorporate as much of this stunning mobile art and photography as we can and to get it out to a wider audience.

Each image can be viewed on Flickr by clicking on the relevant artist below:

You don’t know, that we’d slipped away so slow
Cold I know, as we fall like a final winter snow
Separate alibis, covered in lies
Gave what you could, and you know that I tried
So tell me why, I can’t even look in your eyes

I came to you, lost and abused
A little to late and a little to soon
Tried to convince me, tried your best to fix me
But I just kept breaking down
Had something to hold, a reason to smile
I’d ask you to slide and stay for a while
Drift on a chase, falling from grace

But now we only (only) show
The contempt that will tear us apart
Only only grow, away from the place that we start
Separate alibis, covered in lies
Gave what you could, and you know that I tried
So tell me why, you can’t even look in my eyes

Our love has been stolen, the promises broken
All that remains, is not worth the pain
We’re facing defeat, in a game we can’t cheat
It’s not meant to be, but it’s so hard to leave
When we began, I never saw the end
Crazy for you, to good to be true
Its not what it seemed, not what we claimed it to be

I wish you well, farewell my friend, I wish you well

Tell me again for we only (only) show
The contempt that will tear us apart
Only only grow, away from the place that we start
Separate alibis, covered in lies
Gave what you could, and you know that I tried
So tell me why, I can’t even look in your eyes

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK. She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both.
