The Lunch Box Gallery, in collaboration with past featured iPhoneographer Jaime Ferreyros, is pleased to announce the call for submissions for its new show “iPhoneography: Updated Visual Dialogs”. The exhibit will be displayed from March 10th to April 7th, 2012.
From the Press Release:
It’s undeniable. iPhoneography, understood as the creative process of taking and editing pictures with the Apple’s iPhone, is everywhere. Nowadays, there is more and more people accepting this device as a valid camera within the Photography art form.
For this show, The Lunch Box Gallery is aiming to explore the social phenomenon of iPhoneography as a personal tool globally used to generate visual content, be shared and therefore, communicate. Here, the images many times meticulously conceived, some others more intuitively taken — yet all intentionally post-produced — are intended as mirrors of the user’s everyday life — a visual diary of the individual that can become an open book to their interests, curiosities, ideas, intimacy or even artistic take.
As an enabler for creative communication, iPhoneography has become a new medium for massive dialog, where images taken and edited with the iPhone are openly shared, sometimes instantly and some other times preceded by a complex creative process; regardless, is undeniable that all of these images project a part of the user’s self.
The exhibition “iPhoneography: Updated Visual Dialogs” as a whole will be an integral, heterogeneous and diverse expression of that avalanche of pixels that are being registered and shared in modern times. Yet, in this immensity, every picture in the show becomes a window, a glimpse of the iPhoneographer’s vision, sensitivity and everyday life. This innovative show is intended to be a raw and free-flow representation of the iPhoneography movement, and is inspired by Chase Jarvis famous quote “The Best Camera is the One That’s With You” ™. Prove it!
Some general guidelines for the show:
– The call for entries is open to all iPhoneographers, both professionals and amateurs, emerging and established, national and international over 18 years of age.
– Pictures must be taken and edited on the iPhone (not on any other device).
