Meditation by Charles Baudelaire

Take it easy, Sadness. Settle down.
You asked for evening. Now, it’s come. It’s here.
A choking fog has blanketed the town,
infecting some with calm, the rest with fear.

While the squalid throng of mortals feels the sting
of heartless pleasure swinging its barbed knout
and finds remorse in slavish partying,
take my hand, Sorrow. I will lead you out,

away from them. Look as the dead years lurch,
in tattered clothes, from heaven’s balconies.
From the depths, regret emerges with a grin.

The spent sun passes out beneath an arch,
and, shroudlike, stretched from the antipodes,
—hear it, O hear, love!—soft night marches in.

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.

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.
