Mobile Photography & Art Flickr and Instagram Showcase – 18 October 2020

We try to make magic here at as often as possible and I am very excited to announce that this week has been no exception… having bonded with Steve and Janet Wozniak (Woz) – Apple co-founder and his wife, four years ago, over our love, care and admiration for Carolyn Hall Young and her works, if you missed that please go here. I felt I should write to Woz once more and this time to share The Quilt Project – arguably considered to be one of the 21st century’s most important poetic pieces and a defining staple of mobile art. Now that we have published the official book for this project (order here) and the physical quilt has been displayed at several art venues around the world, I asked Woz to take a look at our published post (here). I explained that none of this would have been remotely possible, firstly without the creation of Apple iOS devices, secondly without the originator (Roger Guetta’s) idea and thirdly without the response from the 234 artists throughout the world who created artwork for this project. Woz took some time and after he viewed it all, he replied to my question of this thoughts and said “there is really not a question here…just a statement” and that sums it up, the co-founder of Apple remarks our quilt project, is a ‘statement’. How joyous! Congratulations once again, to every single artist involved in this project.

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.

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.
