About the Book
The camera phone has changed the conventions of personal photography. Beyond documenting cocktail parties and canned poses to share on-line, the camera phone can provide an opportunity to explore photography subtly and quietly in day-to-day life. This book is a collection of over 1,000 Apple iPhone 1 images, made during ordinary working days and casual explorations of San Francisco, the author's hometown. Shown without retouching or other editing in the approximate order they were made, these quiet images suggest that a humble 2 megapixel phone camera can capture the joys of looking attentively at the details of plain days.
