SEETIES The smartphone as a creative tool for visual storytelling: How do smartphones change our way of seeing, observing, capturing? Are images taken on smartphones simple snaps or art works on their own right? We have decided to learn more about this topic interviewing Rosa Roth, founder and editor-in-chief of THE SMART VIEW – an inspirational independent magazine dedicated to mobile photography.
PISTOIA in 2017 was the Italian Capital of Culture and @Igers_Pistoia during the year, through Instagram, has involved citizens and not in the photographic and social storytelling of the city, suggesting a new theme every fifteen days or rather a “photographic challenge”. On over 500 photographs collected, more than 80 have been selected and from tomorrow (27th February) they’ll be on display (until 10th March) in the atrium of the Palazzo Comunale (in Piazza del Duomo, 1). Among these, also some photos shared by the #CCTravellers2017!
PISTOIA, end of summer 2017. Streets and squares, churches and saints, people and bicycles, lights and shadows, frescos and striped facades, many trees and one suspension bridge in the middle of little mountains. Moments captured through mobile photography, in colours. And moments captured through analogue photography (yes, later home-developed films), in black and white. Browse through the gallery by Andrea Lavezzaro! #CCTravellers2017
PISTOIA is a particularly photogenic city. Anna Scrigni [instagramer & blogger] explains why and recommends some places to frame… Her favourite ones? The Old Town’s alleys with those soft-coloured doors, rétro signs and bikes that seem to be posing! #CCTravellers2017
