Light Impressions: The Photographers

 

 

 

Light Impressions Artist #1- Robert Herold

Pecs, Hungary

 

“iPhoneography is an opportunity for grasping time.” – Robert Herold

 

“I am a Hungary-based iPhoneographer. I live with my iPhoneographer wife, kids and our dog. I work as a scientist in the field of social cognition.

 

I was infected with iPhoneography at the beginning of 2010. It means a new look to the world for me. I am obsessively focused on time, and the iPhone is a unique tool to capture it, because I can take photos whenever the moment comes.  My iphoneographs are the projections of my feelings, thoughts and ideas.

 

My iPhone pictures have been seen at P1XELS: The Art of the iPhoneexhibtions and on their curated website, as well as in¬†MMS Galleryexhibitions throughout the United States.”

Light Impressions Artist #2- Gerard Godin

Montreal, Canada

 

“The iPhone has been a revolution for me. It uncorked my creativity in ways that no other tools had been able to do in years. Loving it, more every day!”

 

I’m 47, Web developer and consultant living in beautiful Montreal, Canada. ¬†After years of never using all the expensive cameras I kept buying and putting in a drawer, I suddenly discovered the camera on my iPhone. After over 10,000 photos, I’m still going. Sometimes I think I wouldn’t notice the world around me if I didn’t have my iPhone in hand.

Light Impressions Artist #3- Jenny Markley

Arlington, VA

 

Jenny Markley enjoys the simple beauty of ordinary objects and moments that are lost in plain sight.  Vibrant colors and clean lines are constant themes in her photos.  Jenny has a variety of film and digital cameras, but her iPhone is often the tool of choice when it comes to capturing the things that catch her eye.

For Jenny, the iPhone quickly evolved from being a tool of convenience to one that she can’t live without.¬† Two of her favorite camera apps are ShakeItPhoto and CrossProcess.

Light Impressions Artist #4- Janine Graf

Redmond, WA

 

“I appreciate the fact that my iPhone does not compress my spine.‚ÄĚ

 

My name is Janine Graf and I am a stay-at-home mom living in Redmond, WA, which is a suburb east of Seattle.  I like belly dancing, bacon cheeseburgers, cappuccinos, the smell of old books, slapstick comedy, the color orange and movies about gladiators.
I’ve always loved taking photographs but it wasn’t until the fall of 2010 and the discovery of taking and editing images with the iPhone that my passion became a full blown obsession.  I actually appreciate the limitations that come with this camera.  I feel it pushes me to be more creative; to really strive for strong compositions, and then add to those compositions appropriate editing to help aid in the visual story telling.  It’s a wonderful process.  And no subject matter is off limits; everything fascinates me, but I do admit I tend to gravitate towards subject matter that allows for a whimsy feeling or vibe.
iPhone photography has opened many doors for me that otherwise would never have been opened with my DSLR photography and for that I am forever grateful.

Light Impressions Artist #6- Amo Passicos

Prades le Lez, France

 

“Life is cyclic. It is the same thing with my photgraphy: sometimes I shoot in colour, sometimes in black and white, square, digital or film.

 

I have been using my iPhone to take pictures and process them for a year now.¬† I never say to myself that a particular format will be the most appropriate for a particular situation. It is a risk I take at the beginning of a photographic session.¬† I don’t compute.¬† I am not looking for the best composition ever.¬† I open my eyes, see something that attracts me, I select angle, I push the button and it’s over.

 

Whatever happens afterwards is pretty random. Sometimes the image acquires meaning, a story is captured. Sometimes it remains silent and is ruhtlessly deleted.” – April 2011

Light Impressions Artist #7- Giuseppe Navone

Piedmont, Italy

 

“This is my first experience in photography.¬† Although I have always been passionate about photography, my artistic life has been devoted to painting and drawing and I have participated in national and European exhibitions, winning awards and certificates merito Ora.¬† I approached this world of photography because I discovered the great artistic potential that may arise and I love the comparison with others on this issue.

 

My discovery of this world called iPhone Photography was random.  One day on opening a web page I saw a black and white photo and I was particularly touched when I learned that everything was done with a mobile phone.  From this image I was impressed and my curiosity to discover new things did the rest.

 

I no longer consider it a phone, but a small laptop computer with a lens. I consider it my memory of things that catch my eye in the moment.¬† What comes in to my various internal programs give way to my fantasy of manifest.¬† iPhone Art is my way of seeing things.”

Light Impressions Artist #10- Amy Hughes

Chicago, IL

 

Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts; currently residing in Chicago, Illinois. Graduate, Art Institute of Boston.

 

You could say my father started this all when he brought home a Polariod 100 black and white camera in the 1960s. Sure it had bellows on it and you had to peel apart the film and use the smelly fixer stick so the print didn’t yellow… I loved it even as a small child.

 

I did move on to the beloved Kodak instamatics and eventually in school I started using homemade pinhole, Pentax and Nikon cameras. But nothing has excited me more than using the iPhone to capture and create what is now considered a truly revolutionary art form.

 

Which always leads back to the question: What does iPhoneography mean to you? And I always answer with sincerity and utter seriousness: not having to wait for film to develop. Thanks, Dad

This amazing all-in-one device allows me to create colorful, moving and intense art while in line at the grocery store, or while waiting in the dentist‚Äôs office. Being able to raise my family AND explore and grow creatively is an incredible and irreplaceable gift. I urge any busy mom, dad or teen to try it, to capture and breathe new life into your world, to give yourself the chance to amaze yourself.”

The iPhone and accompanying apps have become her medium of choice, allowing her the utter freedom and mobility to create vibrant and intense images on the go.

Light Impressions Artist #13- Colleen Duffley

Santa Rosa Beach, FL

 

Colleen Duffley has been shooting people, places and things around the globe for 25 years. She shoots, directs, produces, and concepts for magazines, commercials and ad campaigns, but has never limited herself and has since developed plan b., or Studio b. rather – a creative venue that brings together the best of the best in all things creative. It only seems fitting since the first event of Studio b. was a camera phone event and now three years later, as Studio b. has grown nationally and internationally, that the camera phone event has led to this iPhoneography exhibit. Colleen’s purpose behind the original event was to create a level playing field where all people could be creative, and not need expensive equipment. It’s about capturing a moment and being a part of a creative group.¬†Colleen always has to take things to the next level.

 

“I shoot my iPhone when I’m on the run! (Actually, I’m exercising…) It’s my time to not have the pressures of a paid gig, and I get to shoot just for me. No pressure, no deadline, no assignment. It’s when I’m truly just playing, and it gives me freedom and instant gratification, much like the polaroid did in it’s day. The iPhone is my Polaroid.” -Colleen Duffley

Light Impressions Artist #15- Dan Piassick

Dallas, Texas

 

Dan Piassick is a photographer whose shots have been seen in Veranda, Southern Accents, Ladies Home Journal, D Home, D magazine, Western Interiors and Texas Home and Living, Southwest Art, Better Homes and Gardens and a variety of coffee table books.

 

Born and raised with Dallas as his backyard, his boot collection easily gives away his affinity for Texas rock. While it might seem like his arm muscles are so defined from lugging around all that camera equipment, the truth is that those guns are well-earned from nights spent drumming for a Rockabilly band, The Texas Bop Cats.

 

With thousands of images shot with his iPhone he has been able to document the world in which he lives. Just ask his best friend Woodstock, his Australian Shepherd mix.

Light Impressions Artist #17- Stephane Mahe

Paris

 

“I use the iPhone for my photos because I almost always have it with me, contrary to a reflex case (DSLR). Because of its reduced size, it allows a lesser dimension and a certain discretion, which is a not an insignificant asset as regards to, for example, the photo of street. Furthermore, we find a large number of applications to retouch photo quality, a very wide choice. The iPhone is for me a tool in the service of the glance, of the photographic intention or simply of the envy to make photos. I find more spontaneity in the act to photograph.”

 

Self-taught photographer since around ten years, he has for the main part of this period directed his photographic activity to the panoramic photo 360 ¬į.
Founder member of the agency 360ouest, specialized in the spherical photography 360 ¬į, he collaborates punctually with various sites of information : Rue89, Ouest-France, Le mensuel de Rennes ‚Ķ
In 2010, he discovers the iphoneographie. He exposes not long after in Brittany his first series ” Le vent nous portera “.
He also participates in the exhibition around the iphoneographie in Apple Store Paris.

Light Impressions Artist #18- Aik Beng Chia

Singapore, Malaysia

 

“Mobile photography like iPhoneography is the modern day ‘Polaroid’” – Aik Beng Chia

 

Aik Beng Chia is a self taught graphic designer,  illustrator and a mobile photographer based in Singapore.

 

Capturing Singapore as a thriving cosmopolitan city filled with diversity and multiplicity of cultures, languages, arts and architecture, constantly evolving with time, his work is thoughtful, imaginative, groundbreaking and full of stories.

 

Aik Beng is one of a group of new mobile photographers in Singapore who are actively engaging in iPhone photography, or iPhoneography.  iPhone photography celebrates the limits and possibilities of the iPhone as a tool for artists. All shots have to be done using the iPhone and any processing of the image has to be done using iPhone apps rather than full-fledged desktop applications like Photoshop.

Light Impressions Artist #20- Natali Prosvetova

Moscow, Russia

“I actually started to shoot with my iP 3 years ago.¬†It happened that one day my life began to crumble on my eyes and I could do nothing with it‚Ķ I mean my work and personal life, and everything else.
I was looking for different ways, but all doors were closing in front of me …
Well, I made a lot of mistakes,  tried to enter into the same water twice … It lasted for a long time …until I understood that I need  to look for happiness in small things!
You know with images you can say so many things to different people in one language, which everyone can understand!
And I had something to say.
iPhonography opened a new world for me, I met a lot of most interesting and talented people around the world, finally iPhonography changed me and my perception!
I see iPhonagraphy as independent form of art!! This is my point at this subject!”

Light Impressions Artist #27- T.S. Elliott

Lake Forest, Illinois

 

“I‚Äôm a husband and father of twin boys ‚Äď living in the northern suburbs of Chicago.¬† With a name like T.S. Elliott, I had no choice but to become a writer. I write and create advertising and marketing campaigns for various advertising agencies and clients.

 

I take pictures for fun. I’ve been making images with all kinds of cameras for years, but few cameras are as fun and easy to carry around as the one built into the iPhone. It’s far from perfect.  But that’s part of its charm. I’ve had to learn to work within its limitations and occasionally call upon some of the many wonderful apps to tweak the images into submission. All of these photos were taken with my iPhone, edited using various apps on the phone and uploaded directly. No outside editing programs were used.

 

Some of my favorite apps are Camera+, Filterstorm, CameraBag, Photogene, Lo-Mob, Tiffen Photo FX, ProHDR and TiltShiftGen. Thank you for looking.”

Light Impressions Artist #28- George Alexandris

Kos Island, Greece

 

“Hello. My name is George Alexandris and I currently live on the island of Kos in Greece.

 

I am, technically ‘was’, a professional graphic artist and illustrator for over a decade. For a small period I was also involved in 2D animation.¬† So, I guess, one could say I am an image person who loves to create images one way or another.¬† Inspiration is anywhere, anytime. Sometimes there is none!

 

The iPhone, as a device, paired with the apps for photography are ideal for great image creation and also for strict raw photography. It is extremely portable and flexible device, a camera if you may, and a very well connected to the internet one. So, this makes it very practical to carry around.¬† I believe any camera can produce fantastic work if you go along with it, focus on what it does well and avoiding it’s limitations.

 

Bottom line, the iPhone is fun, art, creativity and speed, in one cool package, always with you for almost any occasion. The iPhone gave me the chance to be creative again, producing imagery and finding inspiration in my everyday life. Hope you find some of my shots interesting.”

Light Impressions Artist #32- Art Meripol

Birmingham, Al

Art Meripol is a Senior Photographer Southern Living Magazine since 1989.

Worked as a concert photographer from the mid 70’s to late 80’s. 
Concert work represented by Rock Paper Photo agency.

Published in newspapers, magazines and books including Time, People, New York Times and other newspapers and magazines worldwide through Corbis.

“With the original iPhone I was quickly inspired by it‚Äôs possibilities as a way to explore my earliest photographic inclinations.¬† Instead of the hi-tech cameras of my work world, the ‚ÄėeyePhone‚Äô took me back to my starting days as with one camera, one lens and one button.

I began to feel inspired in a way I hadn‚Äôt for years. I loved being able to ‚Äėprocess‚Äô an image immediately using apps to enhance and create a different vision absent any art directors or critical voices in my head. It‚Äôs an image by me and just for me.¬† I initially resisted upgrading to newer eyePhones because I liked the rudimentary camera in the original. But I‚Äôm sold on the latest iteration and just-can‚Äôt-stop using it. On my travel shoots I have the big camera for the magazine work and the eyephone for all the things around me that inspire a quick emotional response.
Slowly but surely the eyephone look is bleeding into my ‚Äėprofessional‚Äô work.”

Light Impressions Artist #33- Allessandro Greganti

Turin, Italy

 

“I always believed that a pic must communicate something to the observer, no matter if it was taken with a million dollar camera, with a point-and-shot or with a shoebox with a hole and film in the back. Photos must have a soul, you can recognize a little piece of the photographer in those pics because they were taken with the heart.

 

People intersect and interact each other creating stories that last for a second and then they disappear. I always try to empathize with the subjects, sometimes I create little stories that could fit with the situation. All in my mind and all in few seconds, just the time to press the shutter button. Life is my real inspiration.

 

The iPhone is always with me, is lightweight, unobtrusive and always ready, in a word is actually my best camera. This is iphoneography to me: the opportunity to capture life and truth and turn into something beauty, thanks to having the phone in the hand.”

“My iPhone is the closest thing I have to a super power. The ability to shoot and share mobile photography images from my travels directly from my iPhone allows me to connect in real time with the world. Sharing mobile photography allows me to transcend language barriers because pictures they are universal. I can have a conversion with someone who doesn‚Äôt speak a word of English with the help of emoji. I can‚Äôt wait to see what the future holds for mobile technology, iPhonography, and travel. ”

Light Impressions Artist #37- Easton Reynolds

New Jersey

 

My name is Easton Reynolds. I am 30 yrs old living in New Jersey with my wife Laura and daughter Bella. My wife and I own a wedding photography company called LuRey Photography (www.lureyphotography.com). Aside from shooting weddings I am always snapping pics of random objects or people to use later in an iPhone edit. I am very new to the mobile arts but am loving exploring every avenue it leads me down. I collaborated with a friend named Brent Mosley who I met on instagram for several of the images displayed here. You can view my work on instagram @eastonroc and Brents at @sleekmaus. Before getting into mobile arts I painted abstract expressionist type painting using canvas and acrylics.

“I love shooting with my iPhone in public places. The faces people make when they see me stop and take 5 different shots from five different angles of a fire hydrant are priceless. They have no idea I will later use it in a composition. It’s fun to just let them think I’m crazy.”

Light Impressions Artist #38- Seikou Yamaoka

Osaka, Japan

 

I want to draw a lot of pictures. However, I am salaried. Not draw a picture at work on weekdays,  I was drawing only on weekends. I wished to draw a lot more pictures. I hit on a good idea. I creates paintings with iPhone during a train commute. I made the best of commute time.
But, Commuter trains are crowded during rush hour…
I am standing.  Draw a picture while I was rocking the subway.
I create with the illusion of real water colours and loves to use
iPhone for portraits of people on the subway.

Light Impressions Artist #39- Roger Guetta

Quebec, Canada

 

Roger Guetta has been a Professor of Theatre Arts in Montreal for 30 years but prior to that he had spent many years in the field running his own theatre, painting and experimenting in photographic techniques. He has also been involved in the film business as screenwriter and producer. His paintings and photographs during that period where shown in both Montreal and Toronto galleries.

Presently he is represented by galleries in both those cities and shows regularly around the world.

Since choosing to work exclusively as an iPhonic artist Mr. Guetta has spoken at the Apple Stores in both Montreal and Santa Monica, California. Given workshops at NYU as part of a Mobile Art Conference and taken part at a Mobile Art Symposium out of Wesley University, New Zealand (MINA.) At The first annual LA MAF (L.A Mobile Art Festival) he was invited to show both an installation and a series of his still images.

He has been interviewed by most of the online Mobile Art web sites and is regularly featured as part of the ‘Best Of’ selections by blogs, sites and magazines.

“What separates iPhonic art, which I believe is a new art form, from other techniques is the dynamic of app negotiation.
That is, understanding each app’s particular manipulative possibilities and finding a skill set to traverse from one app to another to produce engaging new works. It is precisely this palette of applications which provides a myriad of possibilities for the artist. ¬†The experimentation is endless and the possibilities limitless.”

Light Impressions Artist #40- Laura Peischi

Malta

 

“I was born in Romania, lived for almost 17 years in Vienna, Austria where I got my university degree in German studies and Psychology from the University of Vienna.¬† For the last 7 years I have lived in Malta with family.¬† I own a pr/marketing and event management and production company and am studying at the New York Institute of Photography.

 

I started taking photographs with the iPhone 3 in 2009 and since then I have shot and processed only with the iPhone.¬† The limitations of the iPhone camera are extremely exciting for me, as limitation leads to concentration and increases the awareness for the presence of what I love to call the “The God of small things.”¬† For me, taking a picture feels like stopping the time and giving it another meaning.¬† The poet Rabindranath Tagore said, “What is Art? It is the response of man’s creative soul to the call of real.”¬† In this regard, whenever I hear a call, I try to answer.

 

iPhoneography is a new art form and it will be shaped by the technical development of the coming iPhone generations and of all the new photo apps.¬† I strongly believe that iPhoneography will establish itself as a recognized art form to be seen in museums of contemporary art all around the world and I am proud to be part of a community of fantastic artists that make this movement so exciting and inspirational.”
