Coming from an art-photography background, Claire has taken on the task of curating Mojocon's first Mobile Photography Exhibition. Attending Mojocon the first year, Claire was inspired by the work that was being created by the mobile phone photographers and wanted to bridge that gap between mobile and art by setting up the exhibition this year. Working on a range of projects through the year from analogue and digital Claire has a keen interest to see how far the phone will be pushed creatively in the next few years.
