FonFoto: A Mobile Phone Photography Exhibit
May 9- July 6, 2014 Artists Reception, May 10, 4 – 6 pm
As the heated discussion over the capability, viability, credibility of the camera phone continues among photographers, many have embraced the technology and the all-in-one, multi-media lifestyle of the cellphone-toting imagist.
Smart phones are today’s newest medium in art. Combined with software applications, they have transformed contemporary art forms in an important way — they are accessible to all. This exhibition hopes to capture the amazing images of amateurs and professionals who snap, click and shoot with a mobile device.
