Early in 2016 I decided to experiment with the camera that's always with me, my iPhone 6. The game changed when I downloaded Hipstamatic - an app that offers (digital) lens and film combinations to create an infinite variety of effects in-camera/phone.  I'm particularly drawn to certain ones that mimic analog photography, like the John S lens/D-Type Plate (daguerreotype) film pairing in this series.

The alchemy of digital algorithms that make expressive, film-like photos fills me with wonder, and shooting with my tiny "alt-camera" is now an important part of my photographic practice.
