From a Pixel a Poem

The poetry in a photograph taken on a mobile phone

Until October, the Joan Miró Foundation is hosting an exhibition of photos by Cloe Masotta that aims to discover the poetry in everyday digital photographs.

Although many professional photographers may look askance at the idea of photos taken on mobile phones, alleging that the results are devoid of technical merit in terms of focus and light, are they necessarily right? Cloe Masotta is an artist and a photographer whose work aims to discover the poetry and authentic art in photographs taken on a mobile phone. Her technique, however, is focused on the treatment of the image, applying filters, edits and additions that transform everyday snapshots into lyrical images.

In recent months, Masotta has taken thirty-something photos with her mobile phone and then subjected them to artistic editing and the result is the exhibition ‘From a Pixel a Poem’, which can be seen at the Joan Miró Foundation until 29 October as part of the Epicentre Brossa programme.
