The Dramatic iPhoneography of Vassilis Rogakos

What is your name and where do you live?

VR:  My name is Vassilis Rogakos. I was born and live in Athens, Greece.

How did you get started in mobile photography? What device do you use?

VR:  I resisted getting a cell phone for a very long time, but I was introduced to Instagram through my good friend (@blackbirdtales) and he set up an account for me about one year ago. Then I bought my first iPhone 5S in August 2014 and I am still using it. Its simplicity was a relief. I was amazed how easy taking and editing my photos on my iPhone turned out to be. That’s how I got hooked on mobile photography.

Mob Street No.13

"I'm a voyeur. I say that with no embarrassment. If I could have a superpower, being invisible would be it, no question. I'm fascinated by human behavior; observing people and seeing how much story gets told without a lot of dialogue, and how much our brain fills in."
~Thomas Schlamme

I wonder of we all realize how endlessly fascinating we are to one another. I could people watch all day. When I was younger, my Dad would often drive our family down to the L.A. Airport and we would sit in the waiting area and watch the departures and arrivals. That was before all the airport security kicked in and you could sit right at the gate. I particularly remember the reunions of returning soldiers from the Viet Nam war with their loved ones. Maybe that's where I developed my love of people watching. Now I get the same feeling looking at the photos from the Mob Street Flickr Group. If you're a street photographer using a mobile device, you're welcome to join in!

Mob Paint Monday No. 44

“We are no longer in an age of needing to be approved and edited by larger companies before we are allowed to share our creations. This is the era of Do-It-Yourself. Research, investigate and try. You owe it to yourself, to your art and to the Creator to find a way to share that which you are and that which can help, aid, inspire and encourage others. Go for it and prepare to win, because you get what you prepare for.” ― Lala Mae ButterflyFreedom's Daughter: Poems & Art

Showcasing samples of the beautiful images shared in the Mob Paint Flickr Group is one of my favorite activities here at Art of Mob. Each showcase provides a chance to view work being done by various artists around the world.

In order to help this be not only a visual delight but a learning experience, I have asked the artists to provide a list of the apps used. Not all were received in time for posting. If you are a member of the Mob Paint Flickr Group and would like your work considered for the monthly showcase, I ask that you include the apps used when posting to the group. Thanks in advance for sharing your process.
