Out Of The Phone
OUT OF THE PHONE is the world’s first publishing house dedicated to mobile photography. Selected artwork is brought to life through unique art books and prints defined by quality and aesthetic value.
The selection, albeit subjective, presents a series of what we consider to be some of the best images to be found in the enormous flow of photography-related social media.
By capturing these fleeting images on paper, we wish to reclaim the comfort of the touch, the smell of ink, the sound of the turning paper, the timeless joy.
Our Mission: bring to life these volatile digital snapshots by engraving their trace on paper through books and prints that become artwork themselves.
Why mobile photography?
The development of mobile applications and editing techniques on our mobile phones has made a great difference in liberating photography. We are now using the same tools, the photo lab is in the palms of our hands, allowing to express freely the creativity and the personal stories of each user.
Although we are fond of all types of artistic expression related to photography regardless of the technique behind it, we do believe that the mobile device has redefined the relation between the artist and his subject. As opposed to traditional cameras that can be intimidating and at times too technical, mobile devices operate within the story telling, which is the core of our approach.
We wish to support the new, emerging talents in this new photographic paradigm by reinforcing the connection between memories and snapshots.
