The above photo was one of the first iphoneography images I uploaded to the iPhoneArt.com site, curated by Daria Polichetti and Nate Park, way back in 2010. They have decided to discontinue the site and develop a new idea based on Ambrotype inspired iPrints that are printed directly onto mirrors or aluminium plates. The IPA community and I wish them the best of luck in their new endeavour and thank them for their tireless promotion of a fledgling art movement. The site will be missed, as it operated as a kind of “Mothership” for the mobile photography community where inspiration, encouragement and friendship were freely available from fellow photographers and visual artists worldwide. A good example of the emergence of the “social sharing” phenomena online, where communities with shared goals and values support and encourage one another to achieve excellence in an area of expertise or passion – in this case – the pursuit of doing art. Thank you Daria and Nate.
