(foreword by Joanne Carter)
“It is a difficult task to pick out mobile photography¯artwork that matters to me because there’s just too much that matters a great deal to me. I put off this task for weeks, at last sitting down on Thanksgiving to honor Joanne’s invitation, thank all these artists and bring them to your attention if you don’t already know their work.
My earliest memories of seeing mobile art were of a couple of images by Natali Prosvetova and Karen Divine. I don’t remember them specifically or I’d dig them up. What I do remember is that they were beautifully nuanced composites. It stopped me dead in my tracks seeing they were made by women using their iPhones. In 2009. My entire life changed afterwards. At this point, the folks below are artists whose continued commitment to mobile image making deeply nourishes and supports my own”.
