Mobile Phone Photo Exhibit: My Year in Pictures

In a departure from the writing emphasis at paper-pencil-pen, I'd like to share a few pictures submitted (and accepted!) to the Petaluma Arts Center's Mobile Phone Photography Exhibit: FonFoto, a juried exhibition of images photographed with cell phone cameras.

According to the website:
As the heated discussion over the capability, viability, credibility of the camera phone continues among photographers, many have embraced the technology and the all-in-one, multi-media lifestyle of the cellphone-toting imagist.
Smart phones are today’s newest medium in art. Combined with software applications, they have transformed contemporary art forms in an important way — they are accessible to all. This exhibition hopes to capture the amazing images of amateurs and professionals who snap, click and shoot with a mobile device.
The images I submitted follow the four seasons. (Consideration was given to unusual angles and app enhancements unique to cell phone cameras.) "Spring" was rejected, but I can bring in its replacement (below) with no guarantee whether or not it will be hung. Tomorrow I'll get them printed at a fine arts studio that prints on paper, canvas and even aluminum! If you're in the area, come to the Artists' Reception on May 10 from 4-6 p.m. or stop by the exhibit between May 9 -- July 6, 2014.
