Juror's Choice: "Baseball and the Skyline" by Erik S. Lieber Brooklyn, NY USA

Images made with mobile phones are becoming part of the photographic mainstream. Made with a phone camera, processed on the phone and even printed from the phone, these images are showing up in exhibitions both as a genre and alongside classic silver gelatin prints.  What distinguishes mobile device photography from that made with other devices?  Less and Less.  Possibly the fact that you can do it all on one device is unique. {sharethis}

Sometimes the images created with mobile devices are more candid. Having a camera with us all the time lets us capture moments that can otherwise escape. Very quickly mobilephones are becoming just another type of camera taking their place alongside pin hole cameras, toy cameras, point and shoot cameras, SLR cameras etc. Here, in the gallery, we say it over and over - it's not the camera - it's the photographer's vision and skill that makes a great photograph. Last year's mobile phone photography exhibit said it. We want this year's exhibit to prove it.

Five years have passed since the first iPhone opened the floodgates to easily captured and easily stylized imaging. For Photography — a medium just 186 years old — that’s long enough for a certain maturity to emerge. Happily, you’ll see some of that visual coming-of-age surfacing in this fine exhibition. Yes, there are still the ubiquitous grunge filters, vignettes, borders and square crops. Heck, these effects are part of what we love about cell phone photography. But when the app dust settles, the best photographers are discovering how to use their cell phone cameras in unique and hyper appropriate ways.

This exhibition is a stunning selection of today’s cell phone talent, enthusiasm and fun. Enjoy it now because, inevitably, the next show will be different. That’s the nature of photography, whether practiced with a view camera or a cell phone.

Juror: Dan Burkholder

Dan Burkholder has a long history of looking over the photographic horizon to see, explore and teach the next great thing in imaging. Dan's new book "iPhone Artistry" (Pixiq Press, 2012) is the definitive resource for creative iPhone photographers. His first book, Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing (Bladed Iris Press, 1995) became a seminal manual for photographers wanting to blend the power of digital imaging with the charm of the handmade print.

Dan received his B.A. and Master’s degrees from Brooks Institute of Photography, in Santa Barbara, CA. Dan has taught digital imaging workshops for 18 years on three continents and several island countries. Including here at the Darkroom Gallery. His platinum/palladium and pigmented ink prints are included in private and public collections internationally.
