Thanks to Michael Kirchoff for serving as Juror for MobileMagic VIII.
Michael is a fine art photographer and a supporter of the photographic arts worldwide, based in Los Angeles, Ca.

“ I am quite pleased to be selected as juror in the latest Mobile Magic competition, because it gives me great pleasure in declaring my love for mobile photography and the imagery that creative types of people from all walks of life are making these days. Long gone are the days of saying that you missed a shot because you didn’t have a camera with you. However, having that camera certainly doesn’t automatically make you a photographer…one must still have the editing skills, creativity, and vision to make a cell phone image into art. I have always said that cameras and techniques are merely tools for the photographer and artist to photograph with, and the mobile phone being simply the latest with which to create these images. The apps made available help the photographer to realize and refine their vision in myriad ways, and bring an entirely new skill set to making images that are thought provoking, eye opening, and simply beautiful. Our visual culture has been permanently changed, and is constantly evolving by mobile photography. I look forward to seeing the mastery you all have over these tools, and am eager to see your vision and captured moments brought to life through this amazing technology.” p>. ~ Michael Kirchoff Michael Kirchoff Website

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.
