About Geri Centonze

Art of Mob is short for Art of Mobile Photography - photographs captured and edited entirely with a smartphone, tablet or other mobile device. 

In July of 2012, quite by accident I discovered the work of several artists who were accomplishing beautiful painterly results using only their iPhone. I decided to experiment and purchased a few apps. The whole process of capturing, editing and posting to social sharing sites on one device was appealing and addictive. I quickly abandoned my profession as a sketch card artist to pursue this new and exciting art form. To share my work, I started blogging, but quickly discovered there was so much more that I wanted to share. Art of Mob developed over time and includes interviews, tutorials, app reviews, giveaways and amazing mobile images from around the globe.

UPDATE December 2015: Although I will no longer be posting after January 2016, I have left Art of Mob online as a source of inspiration for all mobile photography enthusiasts.
