Mobile Photography & Art Flickr and Instagram Showcase – 14 February 2021

This weeks it is my pleasure to lavish you with love within our showcase, not that we need it to be Valentine’s Day to do so, but it is rather apt that it is. Who would have thought we would have had such a tumultuous year, when we look back? Having lost my liberty for the best part of twelve months being rather forcibly placed within the ‘extremely clinically vulnerable‘ group of patients, I’ve now discovered I am suffering from a ‘survivor’s guilt’ of sorts having received my Covid-19 vaccination earlier this week. I have and am surrounded by my three ‘children’, albeit the youngest is on the cusp of turning 18 and of course my mainstay, brunette, all of whom have been working from home during this pandemic. The former have been torn between leaving the property on their permitted daily exercise with the riotous thoughts of returning with the virus insitu and the carnage which would likely ensue. But now that I am vaccinated I feel guilty that I am in the stronger position to combat this virus than they.  If this sounds like a first world problem to you, then it probably is. I am grateful to the  science, not least for the vaccine but for photography itself. ‘Photography would never have even been invented without theories of chemistry, geometry optics, and theories of light‘, (Bate, 2016). This valentine’s day, I am embracing love with all of us together, who knows where we’ll all be next year.  I’ve been planning a valentine’s family meal for a while now despite our kitchen churning out over twenty meals each day for the past year.  Enjoy this weeks showcase and bask in the love that surrounds you.

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.
