iPhoneography: The art of iPhone photography

Armed with iPhones and digital editing software, these 13 artists have turned a smartphone into a creative canvas

Through the lens of an iPhone

For you and me, iPhones and other smartphones are rapidly replacing our Instamatic-style snapshot cameras. Artists too are seeing the world through their iPhones' lenses, using the Apple smartphone to capture digital images that form the basis of their artwork. This week, the L.A. Mobile Arts Festival features "iPhoneography," digital art based on photos taken on iPhones and typically enhanced and manipulated in software afterward.

Here, we showcase 13 images from the festival showing the range of artistic visions on exhibit at the Santa Monica (Calif.) Art Studios.
