Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @iphoneartgirl Meri Walker and @dleibo – David Leibowitz – Days 2 & 3 the story so far…

We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @iphoneartgirl – Meri Walker and @dleibo – David Leibowitz. Singularly they are hugely talented mobile photographers and artists but combined, they are a phenomenal force of mobile talent! We are so honoured that they have taken over our Instagram feed for fourteen days. This is what they have seen so far…

On Day 2 they highlighted a fabulous image by @armineh__mobileart and they write “Hello, David Leibowitz here @dleibo. My first pick of the day as I share the Instagram take over for @theappwhisperer with @iphoneartgirl. This piece by @armineh__mobileart caught my eye as a thumbnail and did not disappoint when large. I call “crazy great”!”

Later on Day 2 they highlighted this stunning image by @ange_ombre and they write: “@dleibo here for @theappwhisperer : This image from @ange_ombre feels like a production still from a Tim Burton movie. iLove the light, scale of the figures and it’s ominous mood. Epic”.

On Day 3 they highlighted @axelbergk ‘The Resident’s’ stunning image and they write @iphoneartgirl for @theappwhisperer featuring a recent piece by the talented painter @axelbergk. This one, titled “The Residents” takes me in for a looong look. The digital drawing and painting skills of this brilliant artist amaze me on a regular basis. If you’re not familiar with @axelbergk‘s work, do take a walk through his gallery here in IG”.

Later on Day 3 they featured @hipsta365_fernando and they write @iphoneartgirl for @theappwhisperer featuring this piece by @hipsta365_fernando. This Hipstamatic combo couldn’t be more perfect for this shot, IMHO. I feel like I’m swimming in so much that is anything but restful these days and I appreciate Fernando’s brilliant application of this combo to this scene”.

A little later on Day 3 they featured @mitrydate’s work and they write @dleibo here for @theappwhisperer : I’m responding to this image by @mitrydate on a visceral level. I’ve never visited this space, but it feels like I was there in another life. The foreground pattern might be something dripping but not sure what it could be. The person in the background seems to be praying. This feels like a picture of a dream, captured somehow”.

Thank you so much dear Meri and David it is our privilege to see #theappwhisperer through your eyes, it’s so good!

Please take a look at our @TheAppWhisperer Instagram account to follow all the goings on and please also tag your images with #TheAppWhisperer, so that they can be found and potentially featured.

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.
