Mobile Photography Lecture & Exhibit by David Norbut
A Mobile Photography Lecture & Exhibit
Juxt’s very own David Norbut is a great photographer who helps organize arts – specifically for mobile photography - in his community of Wilmington, Deleware. First featured on Juxt for his Hipstamatic Trucker Series, he has proven that he has a great passion not just for the world of mobile photography but for the stories that he tells through his work.
The University of Delaware is well aware of how mobile photography and social media plays into how the world is beginning to communicate. In late August their local paper wrote an article, “Students, Prof share snapshots on Instagram” to discuss their move into this new media. an excerpt from the article reads;
Jonathan Cox, a photography professor, says that Instagram allows photos to be uploaded and instantly viewed by millions of people, a stark contrast to the way traditional photography worked.
But does this pace of photo-taking decrease the value of a photo? Not so, according to Cox. He says he argues this pace of photo-taking and sharing does not decrease the photographic value.
“For me, it’s not the camera,” Cox says. “It’s the person behind the camera. The person is still choosing the angles and the shutter speed. It’s their creative vision and editing that makes the picture.”
David will be lecturing at the University of Delaware – Taylor Hall, on October 3, 2012. He will share with his local community the art, the passion, and the storytelling that he portrays in photography and more specifically his iPhone. Along with his lecture will be an exhibition of his works.
