‘True Intimacy’ by Leah West – Lyrics


It’s not roses, playing toesy’s

It’s not a pocket full of posies

It’s not insight where everything goes right

It’s not basking in the limelight

It’s not kisses, oh so delicious

From a fairytale fictitious

Run in to great big arms

Where it’s safe and warm

Protecting you from all the harm


While all these things are well and good

They never pushed the engine that could


Together we’ll walk through the fire

Together we’ll come out the other side

Through deep struggle and friction

We’ll find a real connection

That’s true intimacy


There’s no blindfold

Nothing to withhold

It’s a much more difficult road

There’s comfort in silence

Or the lion’s den

There’s no place in here for pretense


If you’re willing to just let go

I promise I’ll be gentle



Together we will soar

And leave you wanting more

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 Hall Young

    Many thanks for including my piece, here. I am moved by these works, individually, and as a whole. It is as if there is an escalated “coming of age”, a deeper clarity of vision, in the art and artists, here. I am appreciating seeing this evolution. Thank you.
