Paul Toussaint built a career as a well renowned professional film photographer. With the advent of iphoneography, however, his body of work has gone through a metamorphosis. Toussaint’s photographic eye has transformed completely. He now can look at anything and visualize what the end result will be. He takes the everyday, ordinary subject such as a paperclip on a subway floor, a pair of walking shoes, a middle aged lady on the beach, a clothespin on a clothes line and turns them into stunning pieces of art.
Many of his award winning iphoneography pieces of work have been exhibited in Italy, the United Kingdom, New York, and Connecticut. This June, his Grand Central Station series was part of Art Takes Times Square. His gorgeous Early Morning Fog earned 1st Place in this year’s Sixth Annual iPhone Photography Awards and his Pink (flower) an Honorable Mention.
Toussaint has the common sense and humility to embrace iphoneography when others with his skills probably wouldn’t consider it, making him a visionary of this craft. He knows how to capture life and make you feel it.
Toussaint was featured in 2013 MacWorld Conference, “Among the Top Featured Artists in Mobile Masters: Crossing the Threshold”, in San Francisco to share knowledge and support the iphoneography movement.
His artwork is featured in exhibits worldwide including locations in Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, and throughout the United States.
He earned First Place in the Nature Category for the 2012 iPhone Photography Awards. He also won two Honorable Mentions in 2013, and one in 2012.
In 2013, Toussaint was named a Mobile Master of iPhonic Art.
