The iPhone Arts: Searching for Answers and Meaning on Mobile Photography

Nice article on Egmont van Dyck’s blog about the future of photography and mobile photography in particular. Timely questions. A fashion fad or a genuine artistic movement of historical proportions?  I think the script is still in development (pun intended) and the anthropological implications are still unclear. Yet, we should never forget the dismissive title of ‘Amateur’, used frequently by our professional brethren to describe the phenomenal explosion in the number of people taking photographs, means ‘to love’, if one does a quick etymological search.  When you love what you do or make – you automatically imbue it with meaning that resonates with our common humanity. A reasonable definition, I believe, of what art is, or can be. Worth a read.
