Best of mobile photography in 2012?
2012 has been marked by an incredible growth of mobile photographers sharing their photos on platforms such as Instagram. This growth made it difficult to identify people worth to follow.
Apart from presenting photographers on this website, we also created a hashtag on instagram #emotion_daily 7 months ago, allowing you to submit your work. Thanks to this hashtag, we have been able to discover new photographers, and we love that. We have posted more than 100 photos as “Emotion of the Day”, a way to promote the work of talented mobile photographers all around the world.
To start this new year, we have decided to do a world tour and to present a selection of 21 mobile photographers that particularly drew out our attention.
The selection has been tricky! Many other names would have deserved a place here but we have decided to choose one photographer per country excepted for the USA (too many photographers…) in order to give an overview of mobile photography worldwide.
www.emotiondaily is a space for curation.
Our team is getting bigger and we are proud to announce that Cécile Edelist | @cecile_e has joined us.
Cécile is not only a great photographer, but she is also passionate with Art and Photography. She is both member of the Tiny Collective and of Mobile Photo Paris.
We are building something new for mobile photography lovers. Stay tuned and happy new year!
