Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr/Instagram Group Showcase – 7 November 2021

I recently completed an essay addressing how the visual work of Rosy Martin, informed by psychotherapeutic theory, links personal memory to the construction of self. I will publish it soon but 
it concludes “notable psychotherapist, Sigmund Freud had two photographs on his desk, one of a patient looking well, hopeful and healthy at the start of therapy and another at the end of their therapy looking dejected, depressed and beaten by life. Freud encouraged his patients to bring him their dreams, one cannot help but ponder, knowing what we now know of phototherapy, whether bringing their photographs would have made this therapy more accessible“. Having always walked to my own offbeat rhythm, as a sensitive, single-minded woman who in the early days, somehow managed to enter the predominantly male mainstream photographic press, whilst simultaneously creating work that showcased difference: the otherness of loners, dreamers, outsiders, the misunderstood and mentally ill people, with all their rare beauty and their often brutally exposed “ugly parts”, photography set me free, before I found it, my overarching energy was lost and this weeks showcase demonstrates I’m not alone. Together we achieve a celebration of the dream of life, confirming each artists talent within this remarkable community, aligned with a strong sense of itself.  

If you would like your work to be considered for entry into our weekly Mobile Photography and Art Flickr showcase, please submit it to our dedicated group, here. Alternatively if you’re an Instagram user just tag your images with #theappwhisperer and we’ll pick you up.

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.

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.
