A not-so-great example of camera phone art. Spooky, yes. But is it art?
So, you’ve been snapping mini-masterpieces on your cell phone and itching to let the world see your genius at work. Maybe you weren’t invited to participate in SENT: America’s First Phonecam Art Show and felt, frankly, a little left out. Well, you’re day has come to shine. Your genius will be recognized. Artphoto, the UK based photography mag and website wants your submissions now! I mean, they sent me an “International Press Release” today that was all in CAPS! They must be serious. Anyway, if you don’t believe me, they also have a contact number in the release. Go forth cell phone photogeniuses! The future belongs to you.
Here’s an excerpt (all in caps):
“ARE YOU CRAZY ABOUT YOUR MOBILE CAMERA PHONE? (Yes, you are….admit it.) DO YOU TAKE PICTURES OF EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE, (You know you do.) MAYBE YOU HAVE A COLLECTION OF RELATED PICTURES, (Hmmm) SOMETHING FUN, SOMETHING QUIRKY? (Quirky, for sure) NO PORNOGRAPHY THANK YOU. (Darn!)
