This video was kindly produced by Yahoo and the Flickr team in New York in 2014 and it represents my artist statement visually and verbally.
There was a time not so long ago when I thought there is no way for me to consider using my iPhone for anything but light image sharing if I had no other choice. Then I happened by chance on Michael a brilliant photographer and iPhone artist who has a masterful over his photography style and words completely unique to him, and that “meeting” on Flickr and on Instagram turned my photography upside down in such a magical way. I think other people are the most potent providers of inspiration when we are able to have an honest, robust exchange of both mind and spirit that can take both people far into realms of the unknown. It is magical when that happens. It drew me to a circle of more incredible artists like Brendan, who creates phenomenal images daily and is now blogging here.
So yes, the iPhone, a brilliant tool for creating and altering realities, for giving form to visions and for capturing the invisible.
More about that in future blog entries.

Sometimes it is hard to understand why one of your photos ends up being so much more appreciated than others. This one from the sightseeing tunnel in Shanghai has so far reached number 8 in Flickr’s Explore. I had no idea this would be the picture.
