I Can See Pixels

This week’s reading and Jana’s post made me question about the legitimacy of a pictures from camera phones made me think back to a photographer who published a book using pictures just from his cell phone camera. Unfortunately, this was maybe 3-4 years back, so I don’t remember his name. However, in pursuit of his work, I did come across  an online magazine called “I Can See Pixels”, where the photographers just use their phones. What’s pretty incredible is the quality of some of these photos- aka, they don’t seem like they’ve been taken with a cell phone camera.

What’s interesting is that using cell phones for photography reminds me of a line in the reading about the “democratization of photography”. Cell phones do certainly contribute to that.

The entire magazine is available online for free: http://www.icanseepixels.com/
