iphone photography by sam alive reveals hidden landscapes
all images courtesy of sam alive
new york city-based photographer sam alive uses his iphone to capture landscapes and scenes through a digital lens. the images describe both blurry backdrops and crisp scenery, set within the confines of the iphone screen. the environments that frame each photo are unrecognizable, reduced to colors, patterns and geometric shapes. sunsets, urban streets and ocean vistas are only barely perceptible through the chroma they display. juxtaposing the hazy setting is an in-focus hand, holding a device at the foreground of the images. within the screens, a sharp picture materializes — the new york city skyline, the brookyn bridge and portraits of people in the distance.
