From 21-25 November 2012, the Bastille Design Center in Paris will play host to the Mobile Photo Paris exhibition, showcasing the work of 18 artists who produce their photo creations with smartphones. This will be the first major exhibition in Paris to highlight the myriad features and limitless possibilities of mobile photography, which will be illustrated by over a hundred photos, in a wide variety of styles.
Mobile Photo Paris is a group of photographers comprising French people and Francophiles, professionals and amateurs, all from highly different backgrounds but who have been brought together by their passion for one particular tool – a mobile phone, with which they can express themselves in a way that is fun, innovative and high-tech.
This event represents a movement which is turning current ideas about photography – from both an artistic and technical point of view – on their heads. It is a way of redefining the very nature of photography, in the context of the digital revolution.
The exhibition will not only be showing the work of 18 photographers, but will also be organising other daily events around the theme of mobile photography: lectures, workshops, photo walks, etc.
