We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @sunflowerof21 – Elaine Taylor, she is a respected and very talented mobile photographer. Taylor has been granted full access to our Instagram account and she is doing a very impressive job. We are very proud of her!

On Day 1 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @dinalf – Dina Alfasi and she writes Hello. It’s @sunflowerof21. I’m over the moon to be taking over this account for the next couple of weeks. It’s an honour and a treat to share my favourite images from #theappwhisperer.  I’m kicking off my takeover off with this amazing image from one of my favourite igers: @dinalf. Her work is absolutely stunning – mobile photography at its best! Go to Dina’s feed and you’ll see exactly what I mean”.

On Day 2 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of our one and only Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont @ilemusi and she writes @sunflowerof21 here with my second selection from #theappwhisperer. I’m a huge fan of @ilemusi’s work. Her creative use of apps creates surreal and dynamic images and draws your eyes to the figures within them. Head over to her feed to see more fabulous images like this one”.

On Day 3 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @lorenka – Lorenka Campos and she writes “Hello! It’s @sunflowerof21 here, sharing my third featured image from #theappwhisperer.Lorenka’s work always stops me in my tracks. It’s creative, emotional and expressive. The majority of her images include a human face, but I have a particular soft spot for her florals. I love this pretty delicate thing, dancing within the frame. Beautiful”

On Day 4 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @christinemignon – Christine Mignon and she writes @sunflowerof21 here with feature number four from the #theappwhisperer tag.I adore Christine’s work – her creative use of Hipstamatic (my first and favourite app) is truly inspiring. This image is one of my favourites from this year – I love the leading lines, the bold colours and those tiny silhouetted figures. It’s just fantastic!”

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.

By Joanne Carter

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. 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. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK.
She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both. Please contact her at:
