Mobile photo exhibition “Slowing down…” in Tricity

It is our pleasure to invite all the mobile photo enthusiasts to Gdynia for the second opening of exhibition „Slowing down — The tales from our streets and backyards”. Last year the same exhibition was presented at Poznan’s Community Centre „Słońce” as a part of Great Poland Regions’s Photography Festival. It is the first of its kind exhibition in Poland, where in a single place you can admire photographs from over 40 mobile photographers, whose creative work you can normally see only on the smartphone screen in the fast-growing Instagram, the mobile social network bringing together over 300 million people from all over the world.

On the exhibition you can see photos from very famous mobile photographers such as Richard “Koci” Hernanded (winner of Emmy award, nominated to Pulitzer award), Thomas Kakareko (one of the most popular street photographers in Germany, with roots from Gdansk), Philippe Gonzales (creator of, Greg Schmigel (amazing American portrait photographer) and Emil Pakarklis (founder of iPhone Photography School), in addition to members of polish mobile photography collective “Grupa Mobilni” and the work of mobile photographers from Czech Republic and Italy. The added value of the Tricity-based opening are works of Tricity’s local mobile photographers, thanks to which the charm of everyday, captured in breathtaking black and white frames, shows the reality of life in Gdynia and Gdansk.
