Outside of the photographs taken in France, the vast majority of these were taken with a smartphone. After all, as photographer Chase Jarvis said, “the best camera is the one that’s with you.”

As many of these photographs were captured on devices before the great strides in computational photography, it was all the more important to frame the shot and consider lighting conditions and how to compensate where conditions were poor.

While augmented and virtual reality examples cannot be readily showcased here, the first instance of serious experimentation began with the introduction of a multi-dimensional modular camera system facilitated by light diffraction. It was a fantastic medium to make creative perspectives come alive. The augmented reality space is certainly one to watch for in the future.
