You knew it had to happen sooner or later, but “An Eye for an i: iPhoneography,” a new exhibit at Dot Dotson’s, may be the first photography exhibit locally that consists exclusively of pictures taken with iPhones of various vintages.
Five photographers have contributed their work to the show, with the aim of showing the vast variety of art that can be created with what is nominally a telephone but which, with apps and a keen eye, can contribute much more in terms of high-quality visual images.
Here’s who’s participating, and an example of each artist’s iPhone work:
Susan Detroy has 40 years of experience in photography, gallery management and art curation and owns her own
business, Art/Solutions. She uses an iPhone 6 and iPad.
Adrian McCloud has an iPhone 6+, manipulating his images with filters, PS Express and Tintype apps.
Roxanne Watson worked as the chef on a tall ship called Hawaiian Chieftain last year, and while on board photographed the ship and its crew with her iPhone.
John Watson does his photo shooting at night, using his iPhone 7+ to get images that need wider apertures and slower shutter speeds.
Sandy Brown Jensen describes herself as the daughter of a soldier who turned his gunstock into a camera mount, while she’s a writer who turned her pen into a lens. She takes her pictures on an iPhone 8+.
