Mobile phones were made for convenience, and cellular technology has universally transformed our engagement with the world. It is possible to remain completely solitary; physically, mentally, spatially, while simultaneously engaging completely within your own mobile network.
As cell phones continue to be carried by their owners, they allow one to capture an image at any time, and with the undeniable prevalence of 3G internet connections, these images can be instantly shared with large audiences via social networking platforms. Mobile Uploads is an attempt to concentrate these images into a more intimate — yet still live and constantly ‘uploading’ -- environment.
The Mobile Uploads Project features photographs submitted and collected directly from over 500 camera phone users all over the world.
