1197 is an annual conference dedicated to mobile and iPhone photography. It’s named after the first mobile phone photo taken on June 11, 1997.

The 2013 1197 conference was held at New York’s Soho Gallery For Digital Art. It wrapped up Friday, February 22, with a number of panels on social media and mobile photography, as well as a closing night reception. I was there, along with dozens of other mobile photography notables, iPhoneographers, and Instagrammers from around the globe.

This year’s 1197 Conference, as well as the Friday night reception, was held in tandem with the SGDA’s premier of the 2013 Mobile Photo Awards exhibit, a visually impressive show of oversize displays showing a constant and changing stream of of iPhoneography and iPhone art.

A big thank you to Daniel Berman for the invitation to participate on the Create, Career & Coummunity panel. Also many thanks for event producer and curator Susannah Perlman for putting together this year’s event and for reaching out to Life In LoFi last year in preparation for this year’s 1197.

On a more personal note, it was great either seeing again or meeting many of the iPhoneographers and visual artists who came from all over the globe to attend this event. It’s always a pleasure engaging in person and putting a face and a voice to people I’ve only known previously online and whose works I’ve followed for some time.
