Tim Needles Photograph of Smithtown East's Patriots Day in the Columbus Museum of Art's #MobilePhotoNow ExhibitionI am honored to have two of my mobile photographs included in the Columbus Museum of Art's #MobilePhotoNow Exhibition which opens to the public today in Columbus, Ohio and runs throuh March 22, 2015. More than 5,000 photographers from 89 different countries (from 6 continents) submitted nearly 45,000 images via Instagram and 300 images were selected making it largest museum mobile photography exhibition to date. The museum partnered with the Josh Johnson and the #JJ online photography community (which we work with in class occasionally) to create the show and examine the world of photographs created exclusively on mobile devices.
I'm especially proud to have an photograph that I created with students from my media art class modeling here on Smithtown East's Patriots Day included in the show- the image was chosen to represent the spirit of community seems very appropriate. If you take a look at Josh Johnson's video below you can see the Patriots Day photograph showcase with some text about the spirit week event at the museum's opening in the background.
