By employing a balance of world class fine arts and mobile photography judges, the goal of this exhibit was to objectively identify and showcase the world’s top artists who are breaking new ground in mobile image discovery and invention. To PROVE the unique results from the form and function of mobile photography has crossed the threshold of acceptability and is a distinctive new movement in the history of the art form. The Mobile Movement.
Mobile Masters created by Dan Marcolina is a 2 year old venture to reveal the best art and tech of this new underground mobile photo movement. This year along with another epic Macworld workshop we decided to do an open call for entries into the eBook. This created a way to gather a more diverse and undiscovered group of work. Dan says “For me it was less of a contest and more of a collection and curation process with a minimal fee to support the creation of this show and folio.”
