“iPhoneography: Updated Visual Dialogs” Opening Reception at The Lunch Box Gallery

"iPhoneography: Updated Visual Dialogs” Opening Reception at The Lunch Box GalleryThursday, March 7, 7-10pm – The Lunch Box Gallery, 310 NW 24th Street, Miami Wynwood Arts District

It’s undeniable: iPhoneography, understood as the creative process of taking and editing pictures with the Apple’s iPhone, is everywhere; and nowadays, there are more and more people recognizing this device as a valid camera within the Photography art form. Regardless if it can be accepted as an outlet for the artist or more of a user-oriented medium, mobile photography has become one of the most democratic activities of image-taking. For this show, The Lunch Box Gallery is aiming to explore the social phenomenon of iPhoneography as a personal tool globally used to generate visual content, be shared and therefore, communicate. Here, the images many times meticulously conceived, some others more intuitively taken – yet all intentionally post-produced – are intended as narrative mirrors of the user’s everyday life; a visual diary of the individual that can become an open book to their interests, curiosities, ideas, intimacy or even artistic take. Exhibit will be open to the public from March 10th to April 7th, 2012.
