It hasn’t happened many times to me, but the strength of desire was too strong to ignore, irresistible actually. I had to return to the beginning of The Parisan and start all over again and this time, when I reached the end, the feeling to begin again and was even stronger than the first time. This is a masterful debut novel by Isabella Hammad, it’s historical fiction. A young man, a Palestinian is sent by his father to study medicine in France at the beginning of the First World War. He spends several years in France, liberating and transformative years before returning to Palestine. Along the way, he falls in love, perhaps it could be said, more than once, haven’t we all? The prose is exquisite and Hammad’s ability to paint a scene is as exquisite as the artists in this weeks mobile photography and art showcase, literally have. Their work is as complex as this novel, closely observed, elegantly created, assured and captivating. Enjoy!

Sleepy, exhilarated and refreshed, having spent time with talented mobile artist and dear friend, Linda Toki from the United States in Kew Gardens yesterday. What joy!  To me, there’s nothing quite like ‘sealing the deal‘ of a ‘social media‘ friendship, with meeting in person. Our intellectual circles overlap, our mutual interests conincide and our views of the world chime together. Supple, incisive with infectious warmth and humour, what a gift of intuitive turns and juxtapositions yesterday turned out to be. My body felt so stuffed with good luck, I almost woke up this morning choking on it. My advice, to anyone who doubts the relevance of true online friendship, is stay open because life only gets richer as it unfolds.

This weeks searing showcase of kaleidoscopic mobile photography and art is a masterclass in tempo, tone and character. Apoplexy ebbs to stunned disbelief, as you contemplate each one of these images has been created from artists throughout the world on their mobile phones. Enjoy!

Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @cawestruck – Carol Wiebe – Day 7 – the story so far…

Share

We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @cawestruck – Carol Wiebe. She is a highly respected and talented artist and has been granted full access to our Instagram account and she has done such a magnificent job. We are very proud of her! Please take a look at her Instagram feed to see what an incredible artist she is.

On Day 7 @cawestruck highlighted the work of talented mobile photographer and artist @theartofmayte and she writes, It is my pleasure to highlight this image by @theartofmayte. The image has a futuristic look, as if an Artificial Intelligence has decorated its “skin” with beautiful designs, and is staring out into the cosmos. @theartofmayte likes to experiment with a wide range of images, from the natural world (trees, flowers, animals), to manmade objects (especially architecture) but her major focus is faces. Whatever her subject matter, this artist loves saturated color, dramatic lighting and a touch of the surreal”.

Later on Day 7 @cawestruck felt compelled to highlight @theartofmayte’s latest work and it’s not surprising, this is what she writes I am jumping right back in with another work by @theartofmayte. This image just came throught the Instagram feed and it is another example of Mayte’s photo mastery. She takes facial liberties, as artists are wont to do, but it is unmistakingly face with all kinds of textural and design details to find pleasure in as you study it”

A little later on Day 7 @cawestruck highlighted @marietteschrijver’s – Mariëtte Schrijver’s  very fine work and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight “A horse is a horse, of course“ by @marietteschrijver. How could I not choose this image with its oh so clever distortion, done to such perfection? That hump in the neck is just wrong, and its face has the look of bone, and the mane is weirdly crimped but . . . . you still know it’s a horse. The question is, would you still want to ride it?”.

As if things couldn’t get better on Day 7, then @cawestruck highlighted @harkinjoyce’s – Joyce Harkin’s fabulous mobile art and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight this image by Joyce Harkin, aka @harkinjoyce. Joyce is a prolific digital artist who says she needs assistance to help her STOP making digital art. At the risk of sounding hard hearted, I am hoping her pleas go unheeded because we would miss out on images like this one. I love the bold colors, and the suggestion of a figure, with its missing neck. Perhaps this woman is too much in her head: the connection to her body is unnecessary. The brilliant red architecture behind the figure forms a dramatic backdrop with its hard lines and smooth surfaces, except for that scribble, which makes you try to read it for clues as to what is going on here. All in all, the image suggests an intriguing story”.

And then @cawestruck discovered the mystical and hugely talented world of @liliaschwitter  – Liliana Schwitter and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight “into the Light” by @lilaschwitter. Such arresting editing has gone into this image. You know there is a couple, and you think that may be fear in the gentleman’s eyes, or perhaps just concern, but you really do not know why the woman appears to be falling over. Is she sick, about to faint, laughing so that she can hardly stand up? In any case, we see multiple versions of hands, as if propping up is definitely needed and from various vantage points. Oh, and there are very many buttons on the woman’s torso. Perhaps her partner has been pushing a lot of them? Nor are we clear about the surroundings. All we know is the direction in which this couple is headed, straight for us, and we want to help, or at least hear the story that is playing out. But if the look on his face is any indication, we will not be trusted with that story unless they do not have a mobile device at hand and he needs to make a call, quickly. Luckily, ours is charged and ready”.

Thank you so much dear Carol, it is our privilege to see #theappwhisperer through your eyes, it’s so good.

Like all of these artists, please continue to tag your images on Instagram with #theappwhisperer in the hope to being selected and featured!

Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @barbaranebel Day 4 – 12

Taking in this post, I hope you will fancy that you can almost hear the deep praise, appaluse and embrace I am showering on Barbara Nebel. An outstanding mobile artist and photographer but not only that, a woman who now as far as I am concerned occupies an elevated plinth all to herself, as the … Read moreMobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @barbaranebel Day 4 – 12
