i See- The eyes of VII in the hands of Hipstamatic.

by Lucie of Lucie Wicker Photography

Like taking photos with your camera? Addicted to Instagram or Hipstamatic? If so, you should check out the Griffin Museum at Digital Silver Imaging's latest installation called i See- The eyes of VII in the hands of Hipstamatic.

The exhibit features photos taken by 19 photojournalists from the VII Agency which specializes in conflict photography. The photos were taken while on assignment all over the globe in war-torn and struggling countries, all shot on smart phones using the Hipstamatic application.

From the event's website-

"Utilizing a reflexive instrument which captures and transmits an image in seconds in the hands of these highly trained and skilled masters yields amazing results. There is an irony in the freedom found by the restriction of choice - one touch snaps the shot on an iPhone. The Hipstamatic application allows the layering of filters to add subtle effects to tone and focus. VII photographers continue to experiment and explore storytelling with whatever means technology affords."
