In the introduction to “The Best Camera is the One That’s with You,” Chase Jarvis’ book of photographs made over the course of a year using his cell phone, he stated that as an artist, he felt more free with the little camera built into his iPhone than he ever had with other cameras and that somehow, he had recovered an innocence lost and was able to see the world anew. It is in this spirit that Artspace at Untitled arrived at the idea of the exhibit “Can You See Me Now: Photos Made On Phones.”
The exhibit will open with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at the gallery, 1 NE 3. On view through Oct. 1, the exhibit features 34 landscapes, urbanscapes, portraits, abstractions and still life images captured by cellphone cameras.
The gallery received submissions from as far away as London and Moscow and from across the United States, although a majority came from Oklahoma, according to Untitled’s website. Participants were asked to submit six images, and three judges, all nationally recognized professional photographers, selected one photograph from each of the winners that they felt best represented their use of the cell phone camera.
