Chase Jarvis recently had a contest to win his old iphone 3g – all you had to do was submit a picture taken with a mobile. (I didn’t because I already have and iPhone, and wouldn’t want to take it away from someone else!) Anyway, he recently posted the winner along with a gallery of favorites.
There’s some absolutely amazing stuff in there – all shot with mobiles. Damn impressive. So next time you hear someone complaining that they can’t make good pictures because they need X piece of gear or Y isn’t good enough show them this…
(and before I get absolutely flamed – of couse the camera “matters”, some cameras are better suited for some things than others etc… but the point is that you can make photographic art with anything from a box with a pinhole and scrap of film to a D3x to a cellphone. So go out there and do it!)
