Lee Atwell and Ilana Buch-Akoundi Join TheAppWhisperer As Co-Editors of our StreetWise Column

Share

I am delighted to announce that both Lee Atwell and Ilana Buch-Akoundi have officially joined TheAppWhisperer as co-editor’s of our StreetWise column. Previously this column was co-edited by Sheldon Serkin and Vivi Hanson Sacerdote, both of these wonderful co-editors have recently received increased demands in other areas of their lives and need to step back. We are grateful for all of their input and really excited to welcome Atwell and Buch-Akoundi into our team!

StreetWise is our dedicated column for mobile street photography and art. It differs from our StreetsAhead column as that is a Women’s movement. StreetWise is multi gender. Like our other groups, we also have a Facebook group dedicated to StreetWise, this provides a platform for discussion on the techniques, aesthetics, and goals that all mobile photographers bring to this art form, link.

We have a special Flickr Group for StreetWise, where we would like you to submit your images for curation in showcases, link.

 

Buch-Akoundi is an Interior Designer with a background in fine arts, and a passion for mobile photography. Influenced by classical art and literature, she views mobile photography as not simply capturing moments as they happen, but as a marriage of dreams and visions from inner life and reality. Street photography, as a composite emerging from the speed of life, and what’s resonating within. 

Born in New York City where she still resides with her husband and two children, Buch-Akoundi recently founded hipstaNYC dedicated to Hipstamatic images of New York City, where people from all over the world can showcase their photographs of NYC. She has had photographs featured in mobile photography websites and web-magazines as well as international shows. 

 

Atwell has been passionate about the art, science and magic of photography since the time she was a child – at which time her father had converted a small bathroom into a darkroom.  For the past few years, she been captivated by the versatility, convenience, and creative potential of mobile photography.

In street photography, she enjoys the challenge of capturing the unexpected and also the necessity of being present moment to moment with the surrounding environment – whether it is the continual shifting of light and shadows or the instantaneous and fleeting expressions and postures of people on the street.

She has received several international photography awards and has had photographs featured in publication, mobile photography websites and web-magazines. She has also had photos exhibited in several cities – in the USA, Canada, Italy, France, Hungary, Belgium and Portugal.

Atwell also teaches yoga and owns a yoga studio in Seattle with her husband.

 

TheAppWhisperer is growing at a phenomenal rate and trying to include as much unique content and variety from the mobile photography and art world as our readers can possibly digest, you really don’t need to go anywhere else!  I have some more exciting news to announce shortly, stand by for that!

Please join us in warmly welcoming Ilana Buch-Akoundi and Lee Atwell to our TheAppWhisperer family. Welcome to you two, it feels so good to have you join us!
