“I believe we are at the beginning of a historical movement in photography “the mobile movement”. The convergence of: outstanding tech in a camera that is always with you, along with cheap easy to discover apps and the sharing and learning of techniques within the huge social gallery called instagram/facebook has allowed many more people to intuitively create with images” says Dan.
Within this exponential growth there are small underground pockets of people that are truly reinventing the art-form.
This appBook is an attempt to not only reveal what these talented folks are doing with images but also expose their passion and vision for the movement.
In 1891 Peter Emerson an early promoter of photography as an art form was in despair about the limits of photo processing deciding that it would forever remain a minor art because it could not be manipulated at will.
Dan Marcolina is the owner of Philadelphia-based Marcolina Design Inc. Over the last 20 years their passion for design and digital tools has spurred the company to keep reinventing themselves and in the process have become recognized leaders in print, web, video design and recently Digital Publishing. Having always used digital/photographic imagery as a corner stone of his design process along with shooting personal “fine art” work in many traditional formats his images have appeared in many venus worldwide. Over the last 2 years Dan has recently found a perfect bridge between his digital design side and traditional alternative photo side, iPhoneography. This new obsession has reinvigorated his love for both photography and visual experimentation, inspiring him to Author the iPhone Obsessed series which includes the critically acclaimed Book, iPhone Obsessed and 2 New and Notable iPad eBooks iObsessed Companion and recently AppAlchemy.
