About the exhibition’s concept
For the show “iPhoneography: Updated Visual Dialogs”, The Lunch Box Gallery is aiming to explore the social phenomenon of iPhoneography as a personal tool globally used to generate visual content, be shared and therefore, communicate. Here, the images many times meticulously conceived, some others more intuitively taken – yet all intentionally post-produced – are intended as mirrors of the user’s everyday life; a visual diary of the individual that can become an open book to their interests, curiosities, ideas, intimacy or even artistic take.
As an enabler for creative communication, iPhoneography has become a new medium for massive dialog, where images taken and edited with the iPhone are openly shared, sometimes instantly and some other times preceded by a complex creative process; regardless, is undeniable that all of these images project a part of the user’s self.
The exhibition “iPhoneography: Updated Visual Dialogs” as a whole will be an integral, heterogeneous and diverse expression of that avalanche of pixels that are being registered and shared in modern times; yet, in this immensity, every picture in the show becomes a window, a glimpse of the iPhoneographer’s vision, sensitivity and everyday life.
“iPhoneography: Updated Visual Dialogs” is inspired by Chase Jarvis famous quote “The Best Camera is the One That’s With You” ™.
