Nomads & Orphans: International Mobile Photography

The images, uploaded to the social media sites then have an immediacy of consumption and exchange (social media sites are fundamentally amalgams of distribution, consumption and exchange). The Mobile phone artists will be able to see how many people are viewing their posts (consumption) and the exchange follows with people leaving comments, liking or sharing.

The immediacy of this operation, combined with the seamless integration of image and text into one message, creates a form of speech that restores the traditional relationship of photography with truth while at the same time causing photography to lose its separate identity and disappear into the amalgam of textual-aural-visual communication.
