This is an image from Dixon Hamby’s pole art street series. You can see them all on his Flickr page. This series is based on combining posters from street poles and including the surroundings to add to the impact and often create a play on many elements. It is ever-growing with new work being added all the time.
I first saw Dixon’s work in “The Art of iPhoneography” book where he is one of the featured photographers. He says “Photography keeps me in the present. It’s essentially a part of my life. No matter what problems I’ve had, I’ve always been able to take pictures. Photography makes me see the world and helps me shift my focus off my own problems.” Dixon is a Twitter consultant and teaches classes at a Seattle college. He is a very active Twitter tweeter, uh or whatever you call someone who tweets a lot, other than actual birds that is :-) he he he.
You can connect with Dixon here;
Thanks to Dixon for allowing the use of his image :-)
Thanks to you so much for reading, Patrick
I just received my copy of this new book “The Art of iPhoneography” by Stephanie C. Roberts. At first glance and after a quick flip through, the layout is very nice and it’s filled with great images. The shape of the book is the same as the iPhone 4, that’s fun. It is almost 4 times the size though !! Thankful for that.
There are app reviews and tips on how to use them and lots and lots of creative ideas to get you out shooting with your iPhone. There is also a section where the author features iPhoneographers from all over the world. I am looking forward to this section most.
We are also invited to join various communities like Flickr, Tumbler, Posterous & Twitter. There are all kinds of references to iPhoneographers on Twitter which will be great to explore them all.
I haven’t read the book yet so I’ll refrain from giving an actual review. I may later after I’ve gone through it cover to cover.
Thanks for reading, Patrick
