Mobile Photography & Art Instagram Showcase – 26 July 2020

Share

When we push ourselves, really push ourselves, when we dare to do something we wouldn’t ordinarily do, when we take risks, measured risks but risks nonetheless, it is then that we feel an overarching sense of accomplishment. Savouring each day as our last, that’s when we feel most alive. I walked under a tree yesterday and I heard a little voice call from above, ‘hello‘, I looked up, there was a tiny girl, high above me in the tree, her face so full of glee, so proud to have reached its heights. Her natural shyness had all but disappeared, she wanted me to know what she had accomplished. The summer light glinted off the luminous green leaves, her long blond hair lay tangled and strewn down her small back, her tiny plimsollsed feet, flattened and pushed against each side of the tree trunk, her arms spreadeagled across its branches and the chorus of her laughter, light and laughter emitted from this tree of life. Such moments should be logged and noted. The pleasures of my life are simple – simple, inexpensive and democratic. A fresh cappuccino each morning in bed, served with a side of Lindt chocolate, a mountain of fresh ripe tomatoes, a glass of Rosé at a riverside café, a good book, the cool shuttered silence of my bedroom and as I drift into sleep the prospect that all this will be available, unchanged, tomorrow.

Life is remarkable and for most, the key factor to our mutual pleasure is the gratification in the company that we keep and not forsaking our community. Our success makes for an enduring union.

I want to personally thank all of the featured talented artists for submitting your works to our showcase this week. Together, we exchange our vision, our fears, our hopes and our dreams, we become one.

If you would like your work to be considered for entry in to our weekly Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group, please submit it to our dedicated group, here. You can also submit images to our Instagram tag for this section #mobilephotographyandimagery.

By Joanne Carter

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website— TheAppWhisperer.com— 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 - TheAppWhispererPrintSales.com 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: joanne@theappwhisperer.com
