Mobile Photo Pairs

Mobile Photo Paris is to take place in France from the 21-25 November 2012.

The Bastille Design Center will play host to the Mobile Photo Paris exhibition, showcasing the work of 18 artists who produce their photo creations with smartphones.

This will be the first major exhibition in Paris to highlight the myriad features and limitless possibilities of mobile photography, which will be illustrated by over a hundred photos, in a wide variety of styles.

Mobile Photo Paris is a group of photographers comprising French people and Francophiles, professionals and amateurs, all from highly different backgrounds but who have been brought together by their passion for one particular tool – a mobile phone, with which they can express themselves in a way that is fun, innovative and high-tech.

This event represents a movement which is turning current ideas about photography – from both an artistic and technical point of view – on their heads. It is a way of redefining the very nature of photography, in the context of the digital revolution.

Mobile Photo Paris will not only be exhibiting the work of 18 photographers, but will also be organising other daily events around the theme of mobile photography: lectures, workshops, photowalks, etc.

The mobile photography movement came into being with the advent of the iPhone, and especially its “apps”- compact, simple programmes which can be used for image capture as well as image manipulation or post-production. Smartphones have now become the number one cameras used by the general public, and photo-sharing has become the number one use of social media.

Photographers have embraced these devices to create an entirely new form of artistic expression. There is much room for experimentation, nurtured by the random nature of what can be produced by a camera with minimal controls, providing a new way to share one’s vision. It almost seems, paradoxically, like an antidote to the perfection of traditional digital photography.

The photographers in the Mobile Photo Paris group wanted to exhibit their work in printed form, not only as a way of stepping away from their screens, but also as a way of sharing their images in a context outside the social networks.

About time phone cameras were taken seriously as they play an important part in most of our lives now and you can get some cracking images from these camera imposters.
