Starting Smart: An Evolution in Photography
The smartphone has become a dominant means of photographic interpretation and exploration. Rarely do we expect people to be separated from their phones, and by proxy, a camera. But more than a mere record keeper or selfie factory, the smartphone camera is a natural “next step” in photography as our culture has become more mobile and social – with as much creative potential as its large format or SLR predecessors.
Opening at The Ansel Adams Gallery on August 8th, “Starting Smart: An Evolution in Photography” will feature photographs that started in a phone and became fine art images finished as gold leaf, platinum, cyanotype and pigment prints. Also on display will be a copy of the first photograph ever made in Yosemite by Charles L. Weed in 1859, and one the first digital photographs of Yosemite made by Ted Orland in 1986. A monitor on hand will also feature a rotating slideshow of work by YOU, the park guest.
