Our fifty ninth interview in this new series of intimate interviews is with talented mobile photographer and artist Paul Toussaint from New York, United States. Toussaint, a traditionally trained photographer, is hailed a ‘ pioneer ’ in the iPhonic art movement by mastering the use of apps to create fine art images presented on wood, canvas, textured paper, and metal. His Grand Central Station series was part of Art Takes Time Square and Early Morning Fog which won 1st place in the 2012 iPhone Photography Awards. In the past, Toussaint’s work has been displayed in over twenty-two different galleries across the United States and Europe, and featured in video installations in both Italy and Germany. This is a beautifully rendered interview, genuinely affecting and handsomely constructed. Enjoy!
