Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @gilliannb – Gillian Brodie – Days 1 & 2

We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @gilliannb – Gillian Brodie. She is a highly respected and talented artist and has been granted full access to our Instagram account and she is doing a magnificent job. We are very proud of her! Please take a look at her Instagram feed to see what an incredible artist she is.

On day 1 @gilliannb highlighted this image by @nineacresdesignsart – Tracey Grumbach and she writes Hi, this is @gilliannb here for @theappwhisperer. I am absolutely delighted to have been asked by Joanne to curate the page for the next 14 days ! One of the very first images that caught my eye when I logged into the account was this stunning picture by @nineacresdesignsart I love all the graphic elements in this image and how they have been compiled with such a sense of fun ! I love also that this pic started its life in the physical world, as a collage that was then brought into the digital world to have further touches added. A fantastic melding of analogue & digital”.

On day 2 @gilliannb highlighted this image by @joycoyle_nz – Joy and she writes @gilliannb here for @theappwhisperer Today I wanted to feature the truly beautiful work of @joycoyle_nz Her gorgeous NZ landscapes are really something else, and this one especially attracts me as it’s a scene I know very well ! I spent my teenage years in NZ and visited this spot more than once. This tree in Lake Wanaka is absolutely iconic & has been photographed many many times, but seeing it through Joy’s eyes is a revelation. Her unique vision & beautiful editing have transformed it into something fresh & new. I totally recommend a visit to her beautiful feed “.

Later on day 2 @gilliannb highlighted this image by @barbaranebel – Barbara Nebel and she writes @gilliannb here for @theappwhisperer Just a quick post this morning as I race off to work. I really love this bold & bright portrait by @barbaranebel I love the way the subject stares you unflinchingly in the eye and the use of strong colours and textures adds to the overall punchy effect !”

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.
