It was a whirlwind preparing and exhibiting the Mobile Photo Awards at the San Francisco Fine Art Fair. It’s an incredible event – like a pop-up store museum. Sixty galleries from around the world setting up shop – walking around the 50,000 square feet of art is an incredible experience. The MPA was thrilled to be a part of it.
We spoke with hundreds of patrons, exhibitors and galleries over the last four days and we are continuously proud of the response our exhibit receives. Photography collectors and gallerists are universally impressed with the work – the fact that the images were all created on mobile phones adds to the intrigue but, what speaks to people is the quality of the work. We are truly proud to bring the best of Mobile Photography into the realm of the Fine Art World. Our community rocks!!
Here are a few pics from just before the event opened on Thursday night, the panel and patrons enjoying the shows.
Welcome to the Mobile Photo Awards Weekly Showcase for May 2-9, 2012
This week’s selection features a wide range of entries from street to self-portrait, to mobile art and back again. We really like all of the work this week but wanted to mention, in particular, that we can’t stop staring at the striking Hurry Up by Gusbano, the haunting Skin #3 by Petyr Campos and the compelling Dark Smoker by Al Grega. Amazing work. We also feature strong entries by MPA regulars Dirk Dallas, Michal Koralewski, and Emily Rose. We welcome MPA Weekly Showcase first-timers Benjamin Madison, Chris Stern and Eelco Roos. And many more…The entries continue to raise the bar for mobile photography and art and we are thrilled to share this beautiful work with our readers. Thanks for sending and keep the images coming!
If we haven’t yet featured one of your pieces please keep submitting, we are always on the look-out for new work.
We hope you enjoy this week’s showcase.
