Welcome to my very first curated selection for the “Faved: iPhone Photos of the Week” feature here at Life in LoFi!
When I signed on with Marty to do this, I had no idea what a nearly impossible task it would be to go through the hundreds of images that are submitted each week to LoFi’s Flickr Group pool, and select just 18 of my favorites for inclusion in this week’s collection.
Aside from being exhausted, I am elated, inspired, and incredibly hopeful for the future of mobile art and photography. Of course I came across the work of many established artists whose work I’ve long admired, but the real joy came from discovering a few new artists as well – Wayne Greer, Jack Mallon, and Moshen Chinehkesh to name a few. And, while my own work is all about color, I found myself gravitating towards moody black and whites, such as Damian Nowosadzki’s “Into Fog,” and a few “decisive moment” style photographs, such as Millo Salgado’s “Long Sleeves for the Summer” and Alon Goldsmith’s “Josie and the Pussycats.” But in the end, some colorful works did find their way into the final 18. Sandra Nykerk’s “Generations” made me smile with is poignancy, Trilikemike’s “Out of Place” and all of his work is a feast for the eyes, and Jack Mallon’s “Beach Borders” reminded me of a Robert Rauschenberg silkscreen. All in all, I think this is a magnificent collection that represents a cross section of the amazing art being produced by a wide range of incredibly talented artists. I’m looking forward to Week #2!
Our lead image is by Edi Caves. This image intrigued me for a couple of reasons, but mainly because he made something original out of a technique that is becoming a bit ubiquitous these days. Whenever I see a new twist on an old idea, it catches my attention. And this image certainly did that! Well done, Edi!
So without further ado, I present this week’s 18 “Faved: iPhone Photos of the Week” by Edi Caves, la_ma_rie, Wayne Greer, Cedric Blanchon, Sarah Jarrett, Sandra Nykerk, Mike Bowers (trilikemike), Jack Mallon, Millo Salgado, Alon Goldsmith, Moshen Chinehkesh, Damian Nowosadzki, Nico Brons, Nicki Fitz-Gerald, The Unexpected City, Lynette Jackson, Fabio D’Andrea, and Joan R. Bada. Congratulations to each of you!
