The great photographer Lee Miller took few photos later in her life. A couple of years before her death she was asked to snap some friends, but declined saying something along the lines of, "Once you have been a professional you can never be an amateur". This neatly sums up how I used to feel about phonecam photography - I considered it too basic and horrific to contemplate.
My opinion has changed recently in response to a long period where I have not taken many photos. Also, I captured the dear old lade below yesterday in a bizarre North London cafe (when I was hunting for a jacket potato for a colleague's lunch). I am attracted by the parallels between vintage photography and phonecam photography (poor lenses, grainy response, long shutter speeds) but dislike the idea of trying to Photoshop the results to look vintage. It seems too dishonest.
I am mooting some ideas so watch this space.
