Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Alon Goldsmith from the United States
Today, we are publishing our twenty sixth visual interview, this time with Alon Goldsmith from the United States. Goldsmith has created his own trademark style, as a pioneering mobile colour photographer.
Goldsmith’s images are representative of european Harry Gruyaert’s (b.1941), when he courted Kodachrome while simultaneously exploding into the art scene which earned him entry into the hallowed Magnum photo agency in 1982.
Goldsmith’s approach, much like American photographers William Eggleston and Stephen Shore, who were already taking advantage of colour potential and with which Gruyaert alined himself, have always been full of received wisdom. Each image of Goldsmith’s offers shades of colour, drawing in the viewer, he captures the prosaic moments of life and as Gruyaert himself is quoted, “I discovered“, he said, “the beauty of banality“. Goldsmith’s work will stay with you, like a good friend. (foreword by Joanne Carter)
I am so excited about this new Interview section within TheAppWhisperer. A picture speaks a thousand words, so says the English language idiom and as this is a website by and for visual artists, we felt this section was long overdue. We asked a series of mobile photographers and artists ten questions, in text format and we asked them to respond in their very best way, visually and in their own style of photography/art, the results are unique and incredibly exciting.
