Phone photography on display at gallery opening

Jul 14, 2015

A new art show opening at the Aspen Chapel Gallery opens tonight. Entitled “I-Show - Photographs from Phones” features pictures taken from phones.

 

In the basement of the Aspen Chapel hang about forty photos taken solely on cell phone cameras. Subjects range from beaches to horses on television racing at the Belmont Stakes.

  Summers Moore, the curator of the show, says part of her inspiration for the exhibit was that people often think art can’t come from the device inside of their pocket.
