Mostly Mobile Photography & Mobile Art – Tickle Your Fancy #54
2016-10-01/Comments Off on Mostly Mobile Photography & Mobile Art – Tickle Your Fancy #54
Welcome back to our fifty third post in our ‘Tickle Your Fancy’ section. ‘Tickle Your Fancy’ includes a round-up of between three to five links to articles from around the internet that have specifically interested us during the course of the week. Ones that we feel are relevant to your interest in photography and art.
Just to explain the title for this section‘Tickle Your Fancy’ is an English idiom and essentially means that something appeals to you and perhaps stimulates your imagination in an enthusiastic way, we felt it would make a great title for this new section of the site.
Seeing is believing: documentary photography from Francis Bacon to 9/11
“There is a quiet power to Simon Norfolk’s black-and-white study of what looks like an ordinary staircase in a nondescript house. What strikes you first in this photograph – which features in a new exhibition called ? The Image as Question – is how the light plays on each polished surface: the gleaming handrail and pristine skirting board, the gloss-painted wall. It is then you notice that the surface of each stair is not straight but gently curving, worn by the footsteps of those who have walked down them over the years”.

‘A Lyricist With a Camera’on New York’s Streets
‘When Louis Faurer encountered memorable silhouettes and faces on New York’s sidewalks, he highlighted the liveliness and sorrow of metropolitan life. He rarely looked up at the skyline: New York’s essence was on its teeming streets, especially in Times Square, which he prowled at night’.

Stolen moments of Tokyo commuters by Michael Wolf
‘I spent 13 years in and around London and spent 5 of those years travelling the trains and tubes of the capital on my daily commute. At times it was a nightmare, but compared to what the commuters of Tokyo have to go through the London Underground is heaven on earth. These pictures are the embodiment of despair and anguish’.
Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website— TheAppWhisperer.com— 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.

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.
