The art of mobile photography rose to new heights in 2011!
There were more exhibitions than ever. Many prints and books were sold. The community suffered the tragic loss of Nathaniel “Nacho” Cordova, whose memory will live forever in us. There were gorgeous tributes to Nacho, including a book created by members of iPhone Art, available on blurb. Several collectives emerged. New artists came onto the scene, challenging veterans to step it up. Through it all, many artists stayed consistent in their work and continued to push the limits of the medium. We would like to recognize those artists here.
iPhoneogenic created a list of 50 of the most promising, influential, creative, and encouraging mobile photographers/artists out there plus one honorary member, Nacho. The process of deliberating who and why a person should be on the list took a matter of four weeks. Many listed were unanimously agreed upon while others took some debating. Clicking on an individual’s name or photo will redirect you to their Flickr photostream.
*Artists are not ranked in order from the number 1 artist to the 50th rather they are in alphabetical order by first name (except for Nacho).
