“ The camera phone – a perfectly magical little instrument that allows modern-day photographers to make inventive images while talking to their mothers and checking status updates. Since everyone has a phone to their heads these days, it’s also far more inconspicuous than the cameras of the past. Suddenly, no place is off limits! The best camera is the one you have with you, as the adage goes. And, when it fits into a pocket it’s much more likely to travel along. Most of all, camera phones open up a playful world of experimentation – a helpful antidote to the niggling perfectionism traditional cameras encourage. For anyone in doubt, camera phones are real cameras, every bit as creative and capable as conventional cameras. Phone images are now gracing the walls of galleries and the pages of esteemed publications the world over. It is a bold new age! And, it’s a whole lot more fun.”

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.
