Video Interview

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.

    Carolyn expresses wonderfully the importance of community in our mobile world. We share because we can and because we want to be closer to each other. To get feedback on our work and to see if our work means something to someone other than ourselves. I loved hearing her words from the source and look forward to more artists describing what they think they bring to the mix.

  • Carolyn Meeks

    I will never forget and always appreciate how much you cared for my daughter, Lori. A complete stranger to you at the time. As was I. You spent hours on the phone with me helping me to gain clarity for my life, the situation and the relationships involved. I remember once you were on the phone with me while cleaning up a flood of water that had come in your back door. It was not lost on me the treasure you time was and how unselfishly you gave it. Together we transversed the strange, to me, world of the “audio-guys” that adore you. The situation with Lori remains challenging, but I have learned a lot about those kind of relationships that I have used to help myself & others. And always I look for clarity in everything. Thanks for that. God Bless.
