iPhoneography: Updated Visual Dialogs, a show designed to "explore the social phenomenon of iPhoneography as a personal tool globally used to generate visual content, be shared and therefore, communicate" will feature images taken and edited on iPhones.
As Lunchbox acknowledges in its press release about the show, a collaboration with iPhoneographer Jaime Ferreyros, increasingly more people are creatively taking and editing photos via iPhone and considering the images as a legit art form. "Regardless if it can be accepted as an outlet for the artist or more of a user-oriented medium, mobile photography has become one of the most democratic activities of image-taking," the gallery notes. Its upcoming exhibition is billed as a"n integral, heterogeneous and diverse expression of that avalanche of pixels that are being registered and shared in modern times," with each image revealing something about the iPhoneographer's vision, and life. The exhibition, according to the gallery, is inspired by something photographer Chase Jarvis once said: "The Best Camera is the One That's With You." The exhibition will open 7-10 p.m. March 8, with a second opening reception during March 10 Second Saturday Art Walk, and run through April 7th.
