Wow, I’d love to see this. Unfortunately, it’s at the Torpedo Factory Art Center, just outside DC, only until May 31 (and, as it happens, I’m traveling down there the day after). Oh, well.
Here’s the scoop from the Washington Post: “The exhibition pairs images shot on iPhones with ones from more traditional cameras and raises interesting questions: What makes a photograph art? When is a camera not a camera? And what is the definition of ‘artist’? Sometimes it’s easy. The telltale square format and fake faded snapshot border of Therese Brown’s untitled landscape, for instance, are a dead giveaway to the picture’s Hipstamatic provenance. Other times, it’s a little more tricky.”
