An exhibition to counter the Social Media Culture
Phonetography: the art of smart.
an exhibition by Matt Thornhill
No one takes time to sit back and look at the image any more. To interpret the nuances, the detail, the life, the art. Today’s photography is about the like, the comment and the share. The viral expression of your life to an audience of millions.
All the photographs in this exhibition, have all been taken on a mobile phone; with no fancy equipment, all natural lighting, with the occasional tweek of contrast or colours to accentuate what was already there.
This exhibition, is the counter Social Media Culture, and shows that whilst you can just click and go, the images you can capture with that piece of equipment you have in your pocket, can still be beautiful, and can still tell a much more interesting story
The collection is based on those inspirational things in Matt’s life. They talk of family, friendship, the beauty of the nature in Cornwall and something much deeper.
