The eyephoneography #3 committee

Ir a la versión española

We are thrilled to unveil the unique world-class committee that we have been able to put together for the selection of the four mobile photographers that will be featured in the upcoming eyephoneography #3.

From the eyephoneography inception almost two years ago, we have always believed that, in order to grow and mature, mobile photography needs to break the boundaries of an increasingly wide but perversely self-referential community. It needs to reach out to and be in osmosis with as many as possible different fields like painting, visual arts, communications, advertising, art history and criticism. And we wanted to help to nurture this mutually enriching dialogue.

For the eyephoneography #3 committee, we strived to gather some top-notch dedicated professionals with expertise and experience at the service of such institutions as the Andy Warhol Museum or the Biennale of Venezia, while boldly emphasizing the curatorial aspect of the eyephoneography exhibitions. With all this we far exceeded our own dreams/expectations.

In the next weeks, we will share the details about the call for submissions for eyephoneography #3, which will be open and free. For now, read on to discover the fantastic professionals that will be reviewing and studying your work.
