From 4 March to 1 May Odapark organize an international exhibition of landscape photographs taken with mobile phones: Phoneography called. Thirteen professional photographers and artists show work in which they deliberately chose to implement it using a camera present on their phone.
What started as a forced use of a lower quality camera – for the simple reason that it is a device that you have with you – has quickly become an almost sacred use of camera phones. The love for the camera results in a new form of art in photography. The result delivers pictures that, as a rule, only to behold on the phone display. In a limited format and subjected to the newly created “rules” in this box. The often beautiful images are distributed via the Internet and social media, to well-defined and determined collective use and method. Odapark get these photos of the inside walls of the Art Institute.
Especially the landscape photography in this technique is interesting because it is the genesis of this art form is underlined. On the path in the nature you the best moments and scenes ‘catch’ with the camera on your phone simply because it is in your pocket.
