    Mobile photography

    Interesting article about the rise of cell phone photography.

    VII Photo Agency director praises mobile photography

    Photographs Are No Longer Things, They’re Experiences

    "To say that digital cameras have profoundly changed photography is both true and cliché. But few of the regurgitaters of the idea can tell you exactly how. Stephen Mayes, director of VII Photo Agency, is one of those few. He argues that the rise of digital changed the very nature of photography by moving it from a fixed image to a fluid one. The swift pace at which we create images is only matched by the pace at which we discard them and yet, paradoxically, we’ve never been more engaged with images. Photography is less about document or evidence and more about community and experience … and that’s not a bad thing. “The way we relate to imagery is changing,” says Mayes, who thinks the pace of change is astonishing. Fortune magazine reported in September 2012 that “10% of all photos ever taken were shot in 2011.”

    I completely agree cell phone photography has "risen" enormously.

    I do feel the article is trying to be too upliftting and inspirational; a lot of cellphone pictures is for convienience, work and record-keeping. "Experiences", should people want to display them, most commonly end up on Facebook/Instagram.

    Photos ever taken since the first camera was ever invented? How on earth did they come up with that estimation, I wonder.
