Iphoneography, or more broadly mobile phone photography, is a genre that has exploded in the last several years due, in part, to higher megapixel sensors, creative apps to process the images, and the highly portable nature of the devices themselves. These advancements have led to a style of picture-making that is both immediate and intimate. Every aspect of our lives, from the banal to the exceptional, are captured and digitally published in a manner that reflects our own individual aesthetic sensibilities and preconceptions of the world. Mobile photography is like a personal diary written in our own unique handwriting.
The show also demonstrates the ability of the smart phone to capture images at a quality that allows for gallery display. With resolution levels of new cameras hovering around 8 megapixels and higher quality lenses prints capturing more detail, enlargements of 16×20 and higher are attainable. The intangible is now tactile, the pixels, ink.
