AWOL? Back Soon…

Just wanted to let you know that for the next few days the main site will be a little quiet. You will still be able to follow our wonderful FB groups and we are sure our editors will be keeping them filled with amazing content, links and inspirations. Also, of course we have so much content on our site, tutorials, interviews and more that you may have missed, so this is a great time to catch up.

I am having hospital surgery today, as soon as I am up and able again, I will be creating tremendous mobile photography and art content for you all. So, please bear with me, I am sorry to not be with you for a while, you’re all with me in spirit, I will still be able to think and recall many of your magnificent images that I’ve had the pleasure of viewing and sharing. I’ll be as fast as I can but most likely not as fast as I would like…xxx

The image below is one by Maria Gjonaj, I hope she doesn’t mind me using it for this post. It’s beautiful, serene and calming, just what we all need. Thank you Maria x

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.

    Dear Joanne,
    May healing white light speed your recovery from your surgery. Please take good care of you, and don’t rush yourself into anything until you’re sure you’re completely able bodied. May the skilled surgeons hands work miracles upon you, and make you 110% better than you were before. I’ll be here, waiting patiently, for your return.
