“All men have stars, but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems… But all these stars are silent. You-You alone will have stars as no one else has them… In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars will be laughing when you look at the sky at night..You, only you, will have stars that can laugh! And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me… You will always be my friend. You will want to laugh with me. And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that pleasure… It will be as if, in place of the stars, I had given you a great number of little bells that knew how to laugh”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

The P1XELS Archives 2009-2016

29,000 curated images from the dawn of the mobile arts movement up to November, 2016. Articles, galleries, interviews, the curated history of iPhoneography in one place.

What is P1XELS?
P1XELS is the original website dedicated to the mobile arts. It launched in  late 2009 to host a call-for-submissions for the first-ever juried gallery show for iPhone photography. The pioneering site took off, celebrating and promoting movement and its pioneering artists around the world. In so doing, it defined the medium, making everything that has that has followed possible.
What is new in New P1XELS?
While the focus of the old site was primarily the curated feed of images submitted every day, the new P1XELS is community-focused and oriented. This is a site in the process of being built by visionaries around the world. Photographers, artists, videographers, all who work in the realm of the mobile arts.
What are the main parts of P1XELS?
The site is composed of several different areas. You can look at the nine icons above  for a quick graphic overview. This is pretty much the same information in list form. Obviously, P1XELS is a lot more than just a picture blog now!

User Profile Page: Your page where you can build your own galleries, have friends, write posts, and so on.

Recent Works: All the images that have been posted on the site by users.

Hubbub: All the recent activity on the site, communications, who is friends with whom, pictures posted, etc.

Forums: As the name suggests, a place for discussion about photography, art, image-making, apps, technology, books.

Groups: Places to share themed images and gather together. Groups can build galleries for the Gallery section!

Galleries: Collections of images from the P1XELS archives, groups, special calls for curated collections, featured artists, and so on. Feel free to propose and curate one!

The Art of Now: A curated feed in the tradition of our original site, PixelsAtAnExhibition.com, which is now a searchable archive of twenty-nine thousand images, from November 2009 on through November 2016.

P1XELS Magazine: Currently, this archival material, articles, interviews, galleries, tutorials, and so on, from the late great and lamented iPhotographer Magazine. A lot of wonderful material!

Video: There is a lot of amazing video being shot with iOS Devices these days. This is where we feature it.

Beauty Inside

Untrammeled, vibrant,  and free of post-modern art theory and photographic dogma.

Henri Matisse once said, “Much of the beauty that arises in art comes from the struggle an artist wages with his limited medium.”

Perfectly encapsulating the iphoneographic ethos.
