A while back I started capturing images from Beijing via my iPhone. Even though my Kalashnikov (my SLR) is my third hand, I don’t always have it on me. Enter the iPhone. It’s like a hidden pistol you surreptitiously sneak into a masked ball while on an under cover assignment. (Ok, maybe that’s a *bit* of a stretch)
I’ve decided to create a project based upon this tool. Much of this is inspired by Chase Jarvis’ use of the iPhone as a photographic medium. I truly believe that a photographer shouldn’t be defined by what they use. Even a simple point and shoot can produce amazing images.
This will be an on-going project as I finish out my year in Beijing. I want to capture more of the every day, the “only in Beijing” moments, and document some of the sights that have been such an integral part of my life here.
The Man. The Myth. The Legend.
