A recent National Geographic article estimates that 150 billion photos will be taken withcamera phones by the year 2015—outweighing that of digital cameras. The realm of mobile phone “apps” is constantly growing and changing, and artists are now carrying cameras in their back pocket on a daily basis. Created by Young Harris College, this exhibit showcases this new realm of photographic art and proves that mobile phones can produce groundbreaking images. By moving these images out of the digital world of social media and onto the gallery wall, the exhibit aims to prove that this medium is a true art form—and is not going away any time soon.
