"The iPhone is the snapshot camera of today... it is a pencil, a pen, a notebook. It is so accessible." —Annie Leibovitz
The Rebekah Jacob Gallery in Charleston, SC, is organizing a summer exhibition of photographs taken by the evermore ubiquitous smartphone cameras. At least half of the 500 photographs for the exhibition will be pre-selected, but submissions for the rest of the exhibition are open to the public. Submission guidelines can be found here.
From the website:
"Photography is arguably the most democratic medium of the visual arts. Easily transportable in a pocket, smartphones have pushed the medium into new directions as millions—both pros and amateurs—have the capability to record an image with immediacy and intuition. Further, that image can circulate widely and immediately through social media outlets. Ways of Seeing: Phoneography explores the possibilities of smart phone photography, its future as a fine art form, and affects on modern society."
