I've been enamored with LIFE and its stamp on photography since I was a little girl, so when I stumbled across an intriguing interview with Simon Barnett, Director of Photography at LIFE, I decided to connect with him. He reviewed my documentary work on a recent visit to NYC and I enjoyed our conversation very much. When my book was released (six months later), I sent it to him as I was curious to hear his thoughts on iPhoneography. That lead to an email exchange and his desire to feature the book:
Many thanks to LIFE and specifically to Simon Barnett, Liz Ronk, and Michael Park for your support and interest in the mobile photography movement (and making one of my dreams come true).
I'm truly grateful to see a handful of thoughtful reviews up on Amazon from readers, and to swipe through a collection of gracious tweets, DMs, and emails each day from friends and fellow iPhoneographers. I can breathe. But do continue to share your feedback. I study every word.
And at this very moment, I'm reformatting and loading up a set of photography apps onto eight iPhones donated by Twitter friends to my non-profit organization, Lens on Life. In less than 48 hours I'll be flying to Kathmandu, Nepal with one of my Shutter Sisters and Lens on Life Board Members, Jen Lemen to execute our first program for Lens on Life – teaching students at Koseli School (kids age 10 and up) the art of iPhoneography. During the one-week program, each day we'll study images in photo books from some of the world's greatest photographers; discuss the value of composition and visual storytelling and the influence of light, line and texture; go out on shooting excursions in their communities and on the streets of Kathmandu; experiment with different processing techniques using apps; journal their thoughts and stories; and share and critique each other's images.
To say I'm excited to see what will come of this experience is an understatement. I am certain, these kids will help us see the world in a whole new light. Won't you get involved?
