August 24, 2016 — Light Impressions on Tour, an acclaimed and pioneering exhibit showcasing mobile phone photography, is being shown at The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho (TAM) in Idaho Falls, August 25 through November 5, 2016. Light Impressions is a Celebration of iPhone Photography, showcasing the curated work of 40 iPhoneographers from around the world on 40 iPads. It is the first iPhone photography exhibit of this magnitude in the world. With an iPad assigned to each artist, each unit features 13 images continually looping at different intervals. Light Impressions was created and curated by Colleen Duffley, an internationally renowned photographer, entrepreneur and creative visionary. Praised for its timeliness and unique aesthetic, Light Impressions has been showcased in venues and galleries around the United States such as TEDx, LAMAF, venues in New Orleans and Austin, and an unprecedented two-time appearance at Art Basel.
Duffley remarks, “Photography changed almost overnight with the advent of digital cameras. Long-established companies like Kodak and Polaroid have gone away. There is a new movement in art and photography, a new global art movement. Light Impressions on Tour is an iconic, one-of-a-kind installation that has captured the explosive movement in art, digital imagery and creativity from artists around the globe. The intrinsic value in this piece to the art world is not only with the imagery, but also in the fact that it has great historical significance in the global coming together of art and technology. All captured on a device that changed the market, changed the world and changed our lives forever, the iPhone.”
“iPhone photography is still an emerging art form,” adds Duffley. “I know people are going to be astounded when they see what is being done in the movement. All of it is on an iPhone – from the capture of an image to its processing and publishing. It is really mind-blowing and wonderful. It’s a pure art form – far more about the creativity than about expensive gear or intricate techniques.”

Colleen Duffley Productions
Colleen Duffley has been shooting people, places and things around the globe for 25 years. She shoots, directs, produces, and concepts for magazines, commercials and ad campaigns, but has never limited herself and has since developed plan b., or Studio b. rather. It only seems fitting since the first event of Studio b. was a camera phone event and now three years later, as Studio b. has grown nationally and internationally, that the camera phone event has led to this mobile phone photography exhibit. Colleen’s purpose behind the original event was to create a level playing field where all people could be creative, and not need expensive equipment. It’s about capturing a moment and being a part of a creative group. Colleen always has to take things to the next level!
