The art of mobile photography is rapidly growing, and becoming an acceptable photographic art form. Mobile Works will exhibit mobile or cell phone photography that has been taken with deliberate thought and intent behind it, such as a photographer would do in any traditional photographic method.

Mobile Works will coincide with DC FOTO Week 2012.
