If you happen to be in the Indianapolis area between now and the end of the year, you might want to stop by the Renaissance Fine Art & Design Gallery — they’re featuring an exhibition of rock ’n roll photographer Harry Sandler’s images, which were all captured using the iPhone 4.
Allusions of Reality is the name of photographer Harry Sandler’s exhibition, which features images from his frequent travels to various parts of the world. Of interest to Apple fans is the fact that Sandler captured and processed all of the images in this gallery using his iPhone 4 and a variety of apps straight from the App Store.
Sandler’s gallery show includes images from such locales as Iceland, Spain, Scotland, Canada and numerous points across the United States, stretching from New York City to Santa Monica — and all points in between. The images feature spontaneous “snapshots” of life taken through the iPhone 4, which the photographer compares to the first Polaroid camera his father gave him at age six.
“The iPhone is eerily reminiscent of that first Polaroid,” Sandler explained. “A virtual camera and darkroom in your pocket. Only now with the advent of iPhone 4 applications, one can alter the image to suit that internal vision. It also allows me to push the rules and add my own touch to each and every image — right there on the spot. Additionally, I enjoy the ability to post the images instantly on various platforms on the World Wide Web and gain instant feedback from around the world.”
Sandler isn’t just any guy who bought an iPhone 4 and decided to take up photography — he’s a rock ’n roll photographer with impressive credits for the likes of Rolling Stone and Circus magazines to his name. In addition to serving as a Film and Video Producer and Tour Manager, Sandler has worked with some of the biggest names in showbiz, including Barbara Streisand, John Mellencamp, The Eagles, Billy Joel, Jewel, Van Halen, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Nicks.
Harry Sandler’s Allusions of Reality exhibition is running through December 31, 2010 at the Renaissance Fine Art & Design Gallery located at 246 Main Street West in Carmel, Indiana (located in the Carmel Arts & Design District). Daily exhibition hours are from 6 pm to 10 pm each day, and admission is free. Sandler’s work is also joined by Miami-based friend and fellow photographer Barbara M. Ventura and her Majesty Unfolding gallery.
For more information or directions to the exhibition, please call the gallery direct at 317-506-8477. In the meantime, enjoy a few samples of Sandler’s iPhone 4 imagery right here on MacLife.com and head to Sandler’s website for more of his work.
