From the exhibit listing:

It is not uncommon for artists to step out of their medium to dabble in other creative adventures. Doing so, profits the mind. New artistic pursuits keep us fresh allowing room to wander into new creative reaches, thereby cleansing our own, while also confirming the gifted skills and tallents of others.

This collection of images from Layne Kennedy’s Apple iPhone are moments that called out to him, neither forced or waited for. It is a reminder to Kennedy of the spiritual, instictive nature of photography. No over thinking, no grabbing the perfect lens, or waiting for the ideal time of day. It’s gut photography and the joy of being unburdened using only the most basic of his equipment, an iPhone.

The Mpls Photo Center occasionally holds classes in iPhoneography. Visit the center’s website,, for more info.
