If you are in or near the Atlanta, Georgia area this weekend, you can mope about The Braves or you can check out a couple of high-profile iPhoneography Exhibits presented by Atlanta Celebrates Photography which both open this weekend.

The Art of iPhoneography Exhibition opens tomorrow at Matre Gallery.

Gallery 1 features an iPhoneography exhibit which opens tonight.

It’s a weekend of great openings. Both exhibitions feature an impressive lineup of high profile iPhoneographers. One of the great things about both shows is that they are part of a larger festival celebrating all types of photography.

Photographic images created entirely on an iPhone. Experience the mobile revolution as photographers and artists alike are choosing a smartphone as their camera of choice. Compact, lightweight, powerful and always within reach, this small device is creating a new genre in photography.

Both Sion Fullana and Anton Kawasaki are in Atlanta this evening for the Opening Night reception. I highly recommend attending if you can. Sion and Anton are great to meet and talk with in person.
