Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes Of Bob Weil

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the seventh of this year’s series of interviews and the nineteenth of this fascinating series, within our Portrait of an Artist column entitled “Seeing through the eyes”. This is a section that has been created by our wonderful Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont. Mont has been inspired by the life and works of Carolyn Hall Young, as so many of us have. Young was the main contributor to our Portrait of an Artist Flickr pool and filled it with portraits of so many wonderful people, not only of herself. It is for this reason that Mont wanted to create this section, to enable us to view the artists style through their own eyes. At the end of each interview, Mont will keep Young’s tradition alive, with a portrait of herself, seen through the eyes of the artist. In this case, you will see that at the end of this interview there are portraits of Mont, seen through the eyes of Bob Weil, what a gift!

Please continue to post your mobile portraiture to our dedicated Flickr group or use this hashtag on Instagram #tawportraitofanartist, this way, Mont will search through these artists first to interview. (Foreword by Joanne Carter).

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 6 January 2019

There’s much humour to be had at my nightstand, not least in the morning when my husband duels with balancing fresh coffee on the piles of books and there’s a particular book, which I feel should be on every woman’s nightstand ‘Milk and Honey’ by Rupi Kaur. It’s a book of poetry, about healing and hope, discussing themes of love and loss, bringing about an enlightened self. Kaur ends the book with a tender love letter to her readers, thus reads “you have made it to the end. With my heart in your hands. Thank you. For arriving here safely. For being tender with the most delicate part of me. Sit down. Breathe. You must be tired. Let me kiss your hands. Your eyes. They must be wanting of something sweet. I am sending you all my sugar. I would be nowhere and nothing if it were not for you. But was too afraid to be. Do you have any idea how much of a miracle you are? How lovely it’s been and how lovely it will always be? I am kneeling before you. Saying thank you. I am sending my love to your eyes. May they always see goodness in people and may you always practice kindness. May we see each other as one. May we be nothing short of in love with everything the universe has to offer and may we always stay grounded. Rooted. Our feet planted firmly onto the earth”. This book will certainly not be everybody’s cup of tea, I know that and I am overlooking it. If it helps just one of you, then I am happy to mention it here.

Thank you to all the talented artists for submitting your works to our showcase this week, it’s one of true splendor. 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 know that feeling when you just can’t wait to leap out of bed? Well, that happened to me this morning and its not happened for a while. I share a very beauiful bed with a very attractive and intelligent person who manages to stimulate me in every possible way but not even the lure of that deliciousness combined with comforting luscious silk sheets could seduce me this morning. I’m bursting with excitement and renewed direction for TheAppWhisperer, all will be revealed soon.  Mobile Photography and Art is a huge part of my life, when I sleep, I dream multiple times, it’s almost a spiritual experience to me. I see you work, I hear your expressions and I feel your fierce trust. Mobile Photography and Art actually demands fierce trust and that trust lays down the fundamentals, ensuring you create and put forth your work, without knowing or planning an outcome, that must come secondary. Take a look at this weeks showcase, each one of these artists have fierce trust in their work and it shines though, this is truly a magnificent and extraordinary performance. Enjoy!

Only dedicated circles can give birth to something new‘, a quote by a circle of African wise women, capturing an important lesson in life, engagement starts small and requires a team of committed people. This quote is also functional to TheAppWhisperer and Mobile Photography and Art. Each artist featured in this weeks Mobile Photography and Art Showcase is dedicated and emotionally engaged with the present and future of our art. They are also committed to initiating and implementing all the changes we need to bring about, to move forward. We as a group are willing to respect each other and each others work. TheAppWhisperer is a holding space, for the future of mobile photogrpahy and art, an emotional home for our joint iniative. If you pay attention to somebody, or something, that’s an expression of love. Only when you love, can you do that. Implementing freedom of your own thoughts, is genuine freedom, when you get there, it can be transformative and healing. Pause, connect, create, this is the secret. Enjoy!

Full Day Of iPhoneography Workshops For $99

Share

Join three experienced and frequently exhibited iPhoneography teachers at the Los Angeles Festival of Photography on April 22, 2017 for a full day of workshops for just $99! All three were featured in the book The Art of iPhone Photography from Rocky Nook Books (Bob and Nicki were the co-authors, and David Ingraham was another contributor):

  • Nicki Fitz-Gerald: Life in Layers – Creative iPhone Artistry: Join UK photo artist Nicki as she walks us through her world, pushing the limits of how we see through the lens of an iPhone; literally painting with light, creating impressionist photo paintings, the results of which are often cut up and combined with photos of marks, patterns, textures, shapes and text (all captured on the iPhone) to create her more abstract and expressive collage works.
  • David Ingraham: The iPhone Darkroom: Join photographer David Ingraham as he demonstrates how to apply simple-yet-effective darkroom techniques using only a handful of iPhone apps to achieve tonally-rich, tactile, ready-to-print black-and-white images, all from the palm of your hand.
  • Bob Weil: Creating Conceptual Art on Mobile Devices: Join Bob for a deep dive into one man’s creative process, and discover some of the tools and techniques you’ll need to harness your own creative muse and produce work that represents your own personal view and aesthetic vision.
