Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @lorenka – Days 6, 7 and 8

We are so grateful to @lorenka – Lorenka Campos, whom we entrusted with our Instagram account on 19th December 2017 for eight days after she was gracefully handed the baton by @armineh29 – Armineh Hovanesian, after she received it from @before.1st.light – Jane Schultz and after she received it from @lee_atwell – Lee Atwell, who in turn received it from our first Instagram Takeover artist @pyschephoto – Robin Cohen. 

On Day 6 @lorenka writes, “Hello IG friends, and Merry Christmas Eve, to those who celebrate. Today is day number 6 of my 8 day takeover of @theappwhisperer on Instagram. Today, I’m trying something new and posting one of my favorite video images by @clarisse_debout. It is a beautifully edited winter cityscape that stands on its own, but the addition of twinkling Christmas lights make it a little more special and festive. I hope you enjoy a few seconds of magic. If you don’t already follow @clarisse_debout, please go take a look at her amazing gallery. Thank you Clarisse for sharing your work. Please tag your images with #theappwhisperer for a chance to be featured”.

On Day 7 @lorenka writes, “Merry Christmas IG friends and family! This is @lorenka on day number 7 of my 8 day takeover of @theappwhisperer on Instagram. Today’s sublime feature is “The Red Chair” by artist @lydiacassatt – Lydia Cassatt. The image is straightforward, but mysterious, modern, but with an old world feel. Perfect contradiction. I love it @lydiacassatt. Thank you so much for sharing this image with us. Please remember to tag your images #theappwhisperer”.

On Day 8 @lorenka writes,Hello and Happy Boxing Day!!! This is @lorenka on my last day of my 8 day takeover of @theappwhisperer on Instagram. I thank Joanne for the opportunity and challenge. During these last 8 days, I have met a lot of new mobile photographers and artists, and have been blown away by the incredible images. Today’s feature image belongs to @joyundefined. As I scrolled through the images over the last couple of days, I stopped at this little feather, over and over again. The photographer/artist @joyundefined –  Joy Sussman writes “Why are we drawn to certain subjects again and again? A perfect question to end my 8 day run here on @theappwhisperer. Thanks again Joanne”.

So, with deep sadness for us we have to ask @lorenka to hand over the baton to our next featured artist. We are going to miss this wonderful artist very much but she’s always close by and we do know that you are all going to be very excited indeed when we tell you who @lorenka is handing over the baton too next.

Finally, dear beautiufl Lorenka, thank you so much for your care, your stunning curation and most of all, your company. Thank you x.

Day 7 with @lydiacassatt – Lydia Cassatt

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.

Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus.

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.
