Jon Del Barrio is a man of few words. As an iPhoneographer his work speaks volumes. I have not seen anyone else use the apps to create such beautiful hazy retro photos with their iPhone which speaks to who Jon is as an iPhoneographer. Perhaps Jon is the best at creating that analog look that is closely associated with the medium.
