State's First Juried Mobile Photography Competition at JCC Indy

by Lev Rothenberg

When my friend, Asrar Burney, brought up the idea of a Mobile Photography exhibit at the JCC, I was surprised, because I knew that he was a serious photographer. I also did not believe that phone photography rose to a serious art form.

Was I ever wrong about mobile photography!

Our Mobile Photography Gallery Show and Competition is full of amazing and thoughtful work. The scope of textures, clarity and topics is truly impressive.  

Many of today’s phones have better cameras than some of the best cameras of years past.  And the fact that a great camera is so accessible opens up so many artistic possibilities.

Over 20 photographers from around the state shared their images with us – images of beauty, emotion, visual acuity and warmth. 

Our internationally recognized judges we very impressed by the quality of art we received, and you can view it at our gallery show from August 12-Setptember 5. 

Proudly, this is the first juried mobile photography competition in Indiana.

Join us for our free gallery reception, awards ceremony Thursday August 14 5:30-7:30 p.m. and stay for a free  one-hour introduction to iPhoneography by Rad Drew, one of our internationally recognized judges.

You can hear Rad and photographer Freddie Kelvin talk about the show on WFYI’s Art of the Matter.
