From October 13th to November 24th, 2012, The Lunch Box Gallery will present “A Visual Diary of Jaime Ferreyros,” a photographic exhibition that tells the story of a man and his iPhone.
Nowadays, creativity and technology have merged to form a trend dubbed “iPhoneography” in which every person that owns an iPhone or in fact, any smart phone, has become a sort of an instant reporter or photojournalist documenting their instances with a click.
For some people like Miami-based Jaime Ferreyros, registering his events on the phone is part of his own private dialogue, an intimate encounter between his eye and the eye of his device.
Ferreyros creates spontaneous images which are charged with textures, scratches, blurs and vignettes as to give clues to his wide sensitivity, a visual diary of his inner world.
“My passion for photography goes back to 1976, and really got serious in 1981 while I went to the School of Visual Arts in New York City,” said Ferreyros.
At first, Ferreyros enjoyed shooting in black and white but it was until 2009 when his perception of the world was redefined when his wife gave him an iPhone on Father’s Day.
“I now see through the lens of a camera whose limitations push my creativity to unknown shades of color, texture, blur and noise. You’re basically carrying a camera and a darkroom in your hand,” he said.
The Opening Reception will take place on Saturday, October 13th, 2012 from 7 to 10PM at The Lunch Box Gallery, 310 NW 24th St. Miami, Fl 33127.
