Delighted to have my ‘Doppelgänger’ iPhone image shot recently in Malta selected for the Paris Mobile Camera Club’s theme – Thriller and Mystery. As usual, some great work on display here from the mobile photography community dotted around the globe. Thanks to Nad iPhoneographer in Paris, and Roger Guetta in Montreal for the energy devoted to preparing and showcasing the work.

I was invited by Irish author Patrick Chapman to submit photographic work for the latest edition of The Pickled Body, a quarterly online poetry and art magazine. I submitted 4 images of roses which I shot and processed on my iPhone.

As we enter Remembrance weekend, our thoughts turn to commemorating the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives during the two world wars. We forget that war continues unabated in our world today and that the wounded are still forgotten. An embarrassment even. Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams and talented photographer has produced a powerful series of images that remind us that war leaves scars that are more than skin deep. War wounds more than a soldier – it wounds whole societies for generations. Something we should all strive to remember this weekend – ‘War is a cowardly escape from the problems of peace.’ Thomas Mann.
