This cellphoneSketch originally posted, in March of 2010 was among hundreds of cellphone photographs selected from around the world for the National Cellphone Photography Exhibition at Southeastern Louisiana University Contemporary Art.

As Dale Newkirk, Curator, Visual Artist and Faculty of Southeastern Louisiana University puts it, “With the proliferation of the cell phone and its on-board camera, anyone can capture a photographic image at any time. With the array of cell phone cameras available, what are people taking pictures of and do the images say anything about what is important to people today? In a world full of images, what is important? This is the line of thought that started the curatorial process.”
