ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
iPhoneography Montreal’s Unlock exhibition offers the visions from three artists who have iPhoneography as a common medium, a new form of mobile photography that is gradually being accepted in the evolving world of the visual arts. Literally, the title refers to the function of unlocking the iPhone, but figuratively, it is the evocation of creative freedom, so inherent to mobile art. Finally, the Unlock exhibition pushes the boundaries by working with EyeEm from Berlin, a group that promotes mobile art through a website of international reputation. Two artists will be selected by the EyeEm team and MissPixels to exhibit their work with us.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Born in Quebec, Canada, MissPixels has flourished in the Visual and Graphic Arts community for over 20 years. She turned to the iPhone in 2009 as her main medium for artistic expression.
Receiving worldwide recognition for her work in iPhoneography, she has become the Canadian reference in Mobile Art. MissPixels has participated in several international exhibitions and has given conferences and workshops in United Kingdom, Canada, U.S.A, Australia and Spain.
She was recently invited to the first French TED to be held in Montreal in March 2012.
After studying photography and sculpture at Concordia University, beckibecko will work mainly in the arts as an organizer and manager. 20 years later, he returns to creativity using iPhoneography, an emerging mobile art. Co-Founder of the group iPhoneography Monrtreal and winner of first prize in the Appstractions category of the Mobile Photo Awards, beckibecko just completed his first solo show in Sherbrooke.
Born in Montreal, Gérard Godin grew up between the metropolis and New Brunswick where he moved when he was nine.
It’s precisely this love of urban environments, and an innate talent to find beauty in the most mundane settings, that sends him to study photography under Francis Coutellier at the Université de Moncton.
He finds a way to blend his passion for photography and his technology skills when he discovers iPhoneography.
Today, he is co-manager of IGersMontreal and was recently selected by Worbz for a contemporary photography exhibit in Brussels.
