The dawning of photography had a ritual of exposures and clicks, laboratory exercises and alchemies that gave the reproduced image a distinctive feature. Nowadays, with digital cameras, we have tools and devices at our disposal that in many ways made disappear that sensation of uniqueness.
I believe that the “iPhoneography”, which is the art of taking pictures with an iPhone, together with new technologies, has probably made this uniqueness possible.
It might just well be a modest illusion and maybe we should investigate further but it’s certain that a new photographic language has born and has rendered contemporary photography so communicative.
Africa through iPhone is a wide photographic project tending to combine the reality and the stories of a continent with this new photographic language in order to create tangible and communicative images.
