Many trained photographers have embraced shooting with an iPhone and Paul is no different. After two decades as a professional photographer, he has embarked upon a new adventure and expanding his creative vision, using his mobile device to capture life around him. While the experience is still fresh, Paul begins to post process the image with a number of different applications residing on his iPhone. This process alone takes a great deal of his time, though there are those period, which find impatience getting the better of him.
In the firm belief that iPhoneography is an extension of photography, Paul has left conventional photography and sold his digital and analog cameras. He says, “I sold my soul to the iPhone.”
Since our mobile devices are now part of our lives 24/7, Paul shoots at any given moment, though preferring the magical hour when the sun begins to set and blanketing the scene with the warm glow of light.
Paul’s eye is constantly on the lookout for something of interest, regardless what it is, believing to look at everything and anything, for in the right context can become art.
Paul Toussaint’s solo exhibit iScape is a personal visual journey through the iPhone, an exhibit which can be seen from March 1 to April 8 at the Quinnebaug Valley Council for the Arts and Humanities, in Southbridge, Massachusetts.
