Mobile Camera Club – Opening of the first 3.0 gallery Paris, March 6 2014

Share

We are very excited to bring you news that the Mobile Camera Club gallery will host the second edition of Mobile Photo Paris from March 6 to March 29 2014.

One exhibition, two openings:

Thursday, March 6 2014 from 6 PM

Sunday, March 16 from 3 PM

Located in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, Mobile Camera Club will exhibit mobile photography in all its forms. The name of the gallery is a tribute to camera clubs and photographic societies, which were the real “test kitchens” of the early photographic years. It is also a reference to Alfred Stieglitz, a photographer and gallery-owner born 150 years ago, who was a real talent scout, a forward-thinking artist, and a staunch defender of photography as a fine art in its own right.

At the Mobile Camera Club, you will find art prints for sale, either mounted or framed, or not. The gallery will also provide lectures and workshops to help you use your smartphone as an effective camera, and make the best use of photography apps. It aims to become a reference spot for mobile arts.

Mobile Photo Paris is an event that brings together photographers, professional or amateur, whose styles and approaches are different but who share the same tool, their phone, which they find high-tech, fun, and innovative. From 21 to 25 November 2012, the first exhibition at the Bastille Design Center showcased over one hundred works produced only with smartphones. Mobile Photo Paris celebrates its 2nd edition at the new gallery Mobile Camera Club.

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website— TheAppWhisperer.com— 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 - TheAppWhispererPrintSales.com 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. Please contact her at: joanne@theappwhisperer.com

Not that anyone needs an excuse to travel to Paris – what is the web site for the gallery?

Thanks for that JC- was actually looking for a web site, not Facebook 🙂 Guess they do not have an official site launched yet…..
