Used to be we all cuddled on the couch to flip through a massive photo album. One family trip = 47 pages. Flip. Flip. Flip.
And while the photo album will likely never go away -- and we never want it to -- more and more we're huddling around a friend's cellphone, looking at 34 pictures of their new puppy.
But quality, as well as quantity, can come to mind when we think of cellphone photography. In fact, cell pics are showing up in galleries, museums, and major books these days. Joel Grey has released a new book of his cellphone photographs, and he'll be signing it at Book Soup on Monday, May 3 at 7 p.m.
The same Joel Grey you're thinking of now. "Cabaret" Joel Grey. Oscar- and Tony-winning Joel Grey. The always dapper Renaissance man. The man who possesses a velvety voice and an eye for a memorable shot, shot through a phone.
If Book Soup can't be in your plans on May 3, find a copy of "1:3: Images from My Phone." That is, if you like stage and screen legends who are also masterful photographers, even with a cellphone. We do.
