San Pedro, CA— Surfrider Foundation CEO, Jim Moriarty, will show 125 8×8 giclee prints captured with an iPhone at Gallery Neuartig in San Pedro, California on, July 9, as part of a fund-raising exhibition.
The show benefits the Surfrider Foundation, with each of the 125 prints being sold through a silent auction format starting $100. The Surfrider Foundation is a grassroots nonprofit environmental organization that works to protect and preserve the world’s oceans and beaches.
“At Surfrider we’re about using the best tools possible to maximize our mission of coastal protection. We want people pushing out pictures, videos and podcasts . . . anything that helps connect people to our vision of healthy coasts. Part of this process is having them use tools like iPhones as much as possible and explore those tools capabilities. All these photos were taken on my iPhone,” said Moriarty. “In some cases, I’ve also used phone apps to tweak or mash up the imagery. I thing of these photos as something in-between real-time loose sketches and an ongoing photographic journal.”
Moriarty invites all media, members of the surf community and art lovers to the special opening. Early bidding on some pieces has started on here on facebook.
