The inaugural LA Mobile Arts Festival -- which runs from this Saturday, August 18, through next Friday, August 25 -- celebrates the present and future of this emerging art form. The festival will feature well over 600 examples of iPhoneography by artists from 30 countries -- prints, mixed-media installations, sculptures, sound and video projects, and more.
Helen Breznik of Toronto uses her iPhone to create dreamy self-portraits, like this one, titled "Lilie Lotus." It was shot on an iPhone 4 and enhanced using Juxtaposer, an app that lets you combine multiple pictures into photomontages quickly and easily, as well as Color Lake, a water effects app.
"iPhoneography has truly opened the door to new possibilities of image-making, allowing me to work more freely and spontaneously without the need to 'sit myself down at a computer,'" Breznik says.
