Passionate iPhoneography

“Harnessing mobile photography, allowing herself to become passionate about her art Christine Mignon releases the tension that forms part of human existence with a longing to be close to creativity and achieves this at such a high level, that her art stands apart”. (foreword by Joanne Carter).

“My first contact with Hipstamatic App was in 2011 and ever since then I almost exclusively shoot with Hipstamatic. The app has caused my deep passion for iPhoneography.

My biggest motivation is to satisfy my inner need for creativity, to have fun and to relieve stress caused by the daily routine.

It also helps me to remember the beautiful moments of the past, like a visual diary. I am interested in any kind of photography but doing mostly nature and street photography. I’m always trying to capture a special moment, a special mood, and Hipstamatic helps me to emphasize the emotional atmosphere of this moment, like a digital painting tool.

Another fantastic thing about Hipstamatic and iPhoneography are the great communities in social media, which gave me the opportunity to take part in several exhibitions and online presentations”.
