Jody Miller, fine art photographer, serves as juror of this month’s exhibit!

“Making photographic art with cell phones has definitely come into its own. Once scoffed at as wildly amateurish and lowbrow, mobile phone photos are now becoming part of the fine art mainstream. Millions of beautiful images are being made daily with cell phones, and the opportunity for anyone with a picture-taking phone to make great art has brought forth a democratization of photography that we should all embrace with enthusiasm. Having come from the traditional methods of photography I was slow to embrace the genre, but now enthusiastically use my cell phone to make photos as much as the “heavyweight” cameras I carry around. When a great image presents itself to us, we use the tool that we have with us at the time to capture it; and sometimes that is “only” our cell phone, which now can rival the most sophisticated digital cameras. Great art is great art, no matter what the tool or method used to create it, and Mobile Magic showcases and celebrates that by completing the process and producing gallery-worthy real life, hold-in-your-hand prints to then view with pride on the gallery walls.” ~Jody Miller

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, with the Juror’s pick receiving $100 and the two Director’s picks receiving $50 cash awards.
