Launched last summer, hipstamatics.com is a blog set up by Jack Thomas, born out of both a personal love for analog photography and a recognition of its developing phoneminon. Dedicated to iPhone Hipstamatic photography its beautiful online photo reel that brings together and showcases some of the very best Hipstamatic shots from around the globe alongside some in-house originals. Never one to want to be apart of the moving fads of technologies, alas this has made me want to get an IPhone now!!
With a inbox full of hundreds of pictures it only seemed logical to introduce a new decade with an exhibition of the very best of modern yet retro photography. The very best from the site are now going to print to form the first UK show of its kind at the Orange Dot Gallery. Cleverly choosing to showcase only 157 prints – the same number as the amount of original analog cameras produced, the exhibition is both homage to both the history and future of Hipstamatics the exhibition.
The first UK show of its kind and another marker for the Orange Dot Gallery i'm more than excited about seeing all the works come together in the Gallery - check out some of my favs from the site currently above!!! Show going up this week and the guestlist is looking manic for the opening night...can't wait!
Exhibition: 14th January 2011– 31st January 2011 Opening Night: 13th January 2011
