From Dan Marcolina, organizer of iPhoneography: The Mobile Masters Sessions, coming next January 30th at MacWorld in San Francisco:
Mobile photography is radically changing the photographic landscape. A truly remarkable range of iPhoneography has emerged from around the globe in just the last 2 years. Having a camera always in your pocket plus the inexpensive, organic discovery process of working with apps, along with the instantaneous sharing of visual ideas via social networks like Instagram is exponentially evolving the medium. A large underground of amazing artists are inventing new ways of image creation. In addition an explosion of apps, equipment, books and output options have added to the fire.
Our objective with this day long session is to unveil and celebrate all aspects of this rapidly growing art form based around Apples iPhone. We will be featuring more than a dozen of the most notable names in the movement. You will learn why iPhoneography is different from traditional photography in three unique ways: Organically Shooting, Processing and Sharing. How to get unique perspectives and story telling with Street photography, how to combining apps to create artistic images beyond what has ever been possible and how to share smarter and get noticed in Instagram.
We will also explore the gadgets and services that are emerging around iPhoneography. Hear from the top bloggers, authors and educators in the space to get the complete perspective of what is happening now and what the possibilities are in the future.
This will be the largest assemblage of iPhoneography talent and inspiration to date and will be a celebration of not only a new year but also a new chapter in photographs history, the Mobile Movement.
I am happy to say that I have been invited to speak, along with Marty Yawnick, Glyn Evans, Cindy Patrick, Karen Divine, Dan himself, and a host of other knowledgeable and fascinating speakers. I will be representing the cutting edge of the iphonic art movement, the one and only P1xels! Very grateful to Dan for asking me, and for being a judge for the THIRD WAVE show, and for his long-standing support for the P1xels community and the principles. aesthetic and otherwise, for which we stand.
We will have a bunch of images from THE THIRD WAVE Exhibition in Dan’s Mobile Masters installation, along with the work of a number of P1xels artists, in the lobby (I think) of the Moscone Center.
