Thanks to Terri Warpinski, Professor of Art at the University of Oregon, along with the entire graduating class of the Advanced Photography Practice class at the University of Oregon, for serving as Jurors for this month’s MobileMagic.

“ The magic in mobile phone photography, for me, is the ease with which we are able to carry cameras around with us 24/7. The number of photographs being generated daily is mind-boggling. According to the website 1000 memories, “Every 2 minutes today we snap as many photos as the whole of humanity took in the 1800s.” The quantum leap in that volume occurred with the emergence of the cell phone camera which was first released in 2000. The tragedy in that volume is that so many images are never seen. Mobile Magic gives us the opportunity to pause, reflect on, and acknowledge the significance of the photographs being created through this ubiquitous tool.” ~ Terri Warpinski

Mobile Phone Photographic Images are part of our everyday life. We nearly 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, which allow 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, off of our phones and into the beauty of a fine photographic print. MobileMagic is a monthly exhibit for display in the gallery and online, opening during our regular Second Saturday Monthly Openings. Each month we display archival pigment prints of the top 25 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 25. All are printed as a 100% archival rag pigment print and mailed to the photographer. Three images will be chosen as the Juror’s and the Director’s picks.
