First Friday: Smartphone Photos by Marc Newton


Over on the Westside, more lens-based artwork at Binghamton Photo at 32 Cedar Street, part of the Bundy Museum’s campus of galleries.

The exhibit is titled #Nofilter and features images created by Marc Newton using his iPhone.

Newton, who is a Photography Specialist at Binghamton University, has traveled the country, visiting national parks and taking pictures of landscapes.

He uses the phones panorama feature rather than any after effects to create what looks like a digital echo.

He says smart phones have become a primary way in which people interact with and appreciate nature. “Having a tool that literally everybody has in their hands and that being the means that we experience our landscapes today.  As far as a tool for making artwork, I don’t think there’s much better or more exciting a tool as a smartphone.”

Newton’s work includes what he refers to as ground scans.  

These are images he’s taken while walking along nature trails that are printed onto plexiglass and fashioned into what looks like benches.

Newton will be at Binghamton Photo tomorrow evening from 6 until 9.

The Art Walk, organized by the Gorgeous Washington Street Association, takes place at 16 venues tomorrow evening.
