I was honored to show in the same gallery as this brilliant photographer this past weekend. He used his I-Phone as a primary vehicle for his work, and manipulates the photos to create these arresting, disturbing and surreal images.
THE 2013 MOBILE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS GRAND PRIZE & 2ND PLACE WINNERS
The MPA is thrilled to announce France’s Cedric Blanchon as the Grand Prize winner in the 3rd Annual Mobile Photography Awards. Blanchon displays incredible dexterity as a traditional photographer whose imagination and skill with apps seems to have no boundaries. His strong personal messages are cryptic, disturbing, thought-provoking, and sometimes even witty. We are extremely pleased to share with the MPA community the work of Cedric Blanchon. Our Second Place award goes to Los Angeles based photographer Roger Clay. Clay’s ability to resonate with the people he finds and meets on the streets is remarkable. Whether he’s on a ride-along with local cops or shooting portraits of the local culture, his work is always vibrant, authentic and real. His landscape work is equally exceptional. What a talent! With great pleasure we present you with the work of Roger Clay.
