There is a saying among photographers: The best camera you have is the one you have with you. And there is no camera more available than the one on your phone.
Toss out that Kodak Instamatic, throw away that old 35mm film (Film? What’s that?) camera, and you might as well discard that expensive new digital camera you just bought, too, for the Age of “phoneography” has arrived.
Whether you have an iPhone a Droid or any other brand of smartphone or cellphone that takes a picture, this exhibit is for you. Whether you’re a professional photographer or just enjoy messing around with your phone, this exhibit is for you.
