“I Remember You” Exhibition was Made Exclusively with an iPhone

Today in Paris, an exhibition of photography titled “I Remember You” debuted at the Salon Corderie in Le Marais, open for two days only. Organized with curatorial advisor Isolde Brielmaier, the show features the work of five acclaimed international artists, who captured the featured images entirely on Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Max model. With work from Karl Hab, Vivien Liu, Mika Ninagawa, Stefan Ruiz, and Malin Fezehai, the show employs these individuals’ artistic signatures in celebrating the creativity and possibility that is unlocked by ready access to quality cameras, inviting viewers to appreciate our ability to freeze life’s fleeting moments through photography.

“‘I Remember You’ brings together five photographers who share their deeply personal conceptions of memory, connection, and nostalgia,” said Brielmaier. “It is a moving glimpse of life, preserved in time.”

Smartphone Photography Opens New Creative Possibility

The camera in question, the iPhone 15 Pro Max, represents the height of innovation and smartphone photography, with features rivaling those found on professional equipment. As we’ve entered a time when few people find themselves without a smartphone, the ability to immortalize the passing moments of beauty in our everyday lives now lies in the hands of the masses. This unprecedented access to quality cameras brings with it the ability to unlock creativity in the most unsuspecting moments, as we have at our fingertips the power to preserve any experience we might encounter.

“iPhone has changed the way I create and conceptualize my work,” said Ninagawa. “Unlike when I was starting, I no longer have to carry a clunky professional camera with me. iPhone is always with me, and my wish to ‘take pictures as if I am just breathing’ has been fulfilled. I can now create work that is connected to my daily life.”

“I Remember You” Exhibition Centers Reflections and Memories

Unfolding through the Parisian venue’s beautiful interiors, which feature stone archways and contrasting black detailing, viewers will find the artists’ imagery accompanied by the words “Take a moment. Reflect. Remember. Be. In the here and now. A memory to last a lifetime.” With the sentimental verbiage, the exhibition “I Remember You” presents a display of portraits by the Brooklyn-based Ruiz, urban scenes highlighting architecture in black and white by the Hong Kong-based artist Liu, the Paris-based Hab’s intriguing snapshots of the world around him, imagery with dreamy hues and a playful touch by Fezehai, who resides in New York, and Ninagawa’s (based in Tokyo) vibrant floral imagery, which is presented within an encompassing mise-en-scène.
