Joanne Carter – TheAppWhisperer Speaks at The Photography Show 2015 – Seminar 1 – SECOND Part – Case Studies

I have just published the first part of Seminar 1 of my talks at The Photography Show 2015 – if you missed that, please go here.  In the second part of Seminar 1 I focused on two case studies that I had created. I wanted to try to demonstrate to the audience the diversity of mobile photographers and artists of the world. I wanted to demonstrate the distinction of skills and also the motivation behind these artists, some are formally trained, some use mobile photography as a form of therapy. There’s a huge assortment but with one common denominator, the love of mobile photography and mobile art.

My first case study was of Armineh Hovanesian, she is very talented and has had a broad range of life experiences and these shine through in her imagery. My second case study was of Roger Guetta, a more formally trained artist and Professor of Theatre at Vanier College in Montreal, Quebec in Ontario.  Below you will see the scripts I had prepared for each and I expanded verbally on these to the audience. I also created a video showcase of a selection of their works and I played each one on stage at the Show.  I have attached these below for you to view.

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.
