In September 2012 I was involved in a mobile phone only exhibition in my home town of Lincoln together with eleven other enthusiastic mobile phone photographers. We exhibited at the local library and a local coffee shop. Between us there were just over 100 images across both Androidography and iPhoneography.
These are the images I exhibited.
PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION IN LINCOLN, SHOWCASES GROUP’S TALENT FOR SMARTPHONEOGRAPHY
InstaChimps are a group of photographers based in Lincolnshire who use Smartphones to create images. The group functions through a vibrant online presence, with a varied programme of events and competitions happening throughout the year. The group’s first ever exhibition, called “Hip 2B Square” will be at Lincoln’s Central Library, between the 1st and 15th September 2012.
Miles Winterburn, the founder member of the InstaChimps Group, said:
“This exhibition is really exciting for us, being the first one we have pulled together since the group started earlier this year. We also believe that this is one the first exhibitions of its kind to be held in Lincolnshire and probably the Midlands. We have a lot of talented image makers within the group, and we wanted to promote not only this talent through the exhibition, but the existence of the group to new members.”
“All the images on display at the exhibition have been shot with an iPhone or other Smartphones. This is a fast growing and creative medium, helped by the cutting edge technology and Apps that modern mobile phones offer the visually creative of Lincolnshire”.
The group will be holding an official exhibition launch at Lincoln Central Library, on Free School Lane in Lincoln, on Saturday 1st September 2012 between 1.00pm & 3.30pm. However the exhibition will be open from Monday 3rd until Saturday 15th September. Exhibiting members would like to welcome everybody along to the official launch event, to browse and comment on the images and exhibition.
