All the photos in this book were taken with the 2 megapixel camera in the iPhone and edited with applications in the iPhone.
I was enthralled by the lo-fi look of the photos. With the help of a couple of iPhone apps, I pushed the lo-fi look even more. The lack of clarity and detail brought the photos into more of a painterly light where the interaction of form and color were allowed to become the essential feature. As I get older and my vision worsens and my glasses stay smudged longer, I realize that clarity is not much of a reality anymore. Just living in a painted world.
