The art phone

Phoneography is the art of creating photos with mobile phones.  It is a style of digital photography in which images are shot, processed and often shared directly from a mobile cellular device. The images on this page represent decades of experimentation with digital mediums, which are after all, simply additional artist tools, no more mysterious or controversial than brushes, charcoal and lead pencils. Technology is assistive to the speed of ideas, enabling the user to record, review, and edit visual and written marks almost instantly. The “artist’s hand’ is as evident and manifest in digital imagery as it ever was. Gesture exists inherently in code, in cypher, and in pixel. Touch screen technology has alleviated many of the historical barriers to the artist’s mind to page obstacles.
