We are very pleased to have Aline Smithson, fine art photographer and publisher of Lenscratch as our juror for our inaugural exhibit.

It dawned on me recently that it might be only a matter of time until photography moves completely to cell phone capture, and for those outside of the fine art world, it probably already has. As photographers, we need to look at the cell phone as another tool and another possibility—those ahead of the curve have already been using cell phones to create imagery beyond what was in our viewfinder or imagination and it’s exciting to consider the future. Apps have made every approach to photography possible and more and more fine art photographers are exploring the medium, so it’s important that we embrace a way of creating art that is becoming part of our visual zeitgeist.

Mobile Phone Photographic Images are part of our everyday life. It seems we all have smart phones allowing us to create images with the immediacy of reaching into our pocket, using the processing tools of the myriad of apps, allowing us to create with a serendipity similar to toy camera photography. In our MobileMagic Exhibits, we wish to bring these uniquely creative images to the final print, away from our phones and computers and into the beauty of a fine photographic print.

MobileMagic is a monthly exhibit for display and opening during our regular Second Saturday Monthly Openings. Each month we display archival pigment prints of the top twenty-five juried images, selected by a renown juror from the photographic community. LightBox will print every submission, that’s right, every single submission, not just the juror’s top twenty-five, all printed as a 100% archival rag print to be mailed to the photographer.
