I always thought that photos taken via mobiles are in some way the new Polaroids. They have an inherit imperfectness and immediacy, as most things now do, and a ubiquity that can cover anything from roaming-spookiness, outrage (say, in downtown Athens) all the way to self-satisfied behavior resembling that of the urban 1970’s. “Photography Is Not Allowed” is often the only sign outside establishments in Manhattan. Here are some random mobile shots taken in New York.
