Tomorrow, the streets of Dubai and Abu Dhabi will be adorned yet again with a collection of surprising and unusual images from the “Shot on iPhone” campaign, using the low-light setting. Billboards around the two cities will showcase photographs capturing the beauty of the night from around the world. People, sights, and daily scenes were already turned into vibrant works of art by photographers on the night of November 5 2016.
“Elsa Bleda captured artists in and around Johannesburg, South Africa. Jennifer Bin shot her hometown of Shanghai from rooftops throughout the city, and Illinois’ Kristin Kelley captured the night through the eyes of her children,” shares Apple Inc. “South Africa, especially Johannesburg, might look quiet at night, but actually, beneath it there is so much energy, color, and life,” said Bleda. “For me, the freedom iPhone photography gives is quite amazing. It offers the photographer access to so many apps, [including] Slow Shutter Cam, one of my favorites.”
Over in Europe, artist Ruairidh shares his take on the Apple photography initiative: “I wanted to produce a series of unexpected images that both pushed the boundaries of mobile photography and allowed people to reimagine Iceland––especially its possibilities at night.”
