Starting Smart : An Evolution in Photography
The smartphone has become a dominant means of photographic interpretation and exploration. Rarely do we expect people to be separated from their phones, and by proxy, a camera. But more than a mere record keeper or selfie factory, the smartphone camera is a natural “next step” in photography as our culture has become more mobile and social – with as much creative potential as its large format or SLR predecessors.
Opening at The Ansel Adams Gallery on August 8th, “Starting Smart: An Evolution in Photography” will feature photographs that started in a phone and became fine art images finished as gold leaf, platinum, cyanotype and pigment prints.
