Considered by many to be a pioneer in the movement of mobile photography, Greg Schmigel captures quick, candid glimpses of everyday moments in his photographs, the lives of the people and strangers that he encounters on the street and in public places.
Schmigel believes that 90% of the art of photography is about what the photographer sees with his or her own eyes. The choice of camera that he or she uses makes up for the rest. All of Schmigel's photographs are created with a simple handheld mobile device, the iPhone.
Schmigel insists that he is not an iPhoneographer, rather a street photographer who happens to use an iPhone as his primary camera of choice. In 2011, Schmigel founded and launched Mobile Photo Group (www.mobilephotogroup.com), an international collective of mobile photographers dedicated to promoting their work and presenting mobile photography as an important and evolving form of photography.
Schmigel's work has been group exhibited all over the world since 2010, including stops in Rome, Berlin, Madrid, New York City, Philadelphia, Panama City and Washington, DC. His work is currently on a two-year-long, 13-city, traveling exhibit through Spain along with that of with seven other mobile photographers.
Greg Schmigel was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, in 1969, but has spent the majority of his life in and around the Washington, DC, Metropolitan area. All of the artist's photographs are dedicated to his wife, Suzy.
