Who is amaeye?

iPhoneography is about a moment. The finger touching a piece of glass and watching the world open up around you, that's the moment to move forward and create and make 'it' happen.

Amy Hughes is from Boston, MA and a graduate of the Art Institute of Boston. She moved to Chicago in 1996. Her professional career has been in the design and photography world and in the early 90s as a music journalist and photographer.


No camera has quite held her attention like the iPhone. The convenience, the community of photographers and the growth of social media has made this medium her choice for creative output.


The definition of image maker is constantly changing and Amy is among those who have been fortunate to connect with others around the globe who have become 'iPhoneographers.' The journey will continue to move forward and Amy will always be there with her eye to capture, enhance and share for everyone to see.

Light Impressions - 40 iPads, 40 iphoneographers, 13 images each, 1 really awesome presentation!

Light Impressions is a Celebration of iPhone photography. It showcases the curated work of 40 iPhoneographers from around the world on 40 iPads. An iPad is assigned to each artist and each unit features 13 images continually looping at different intervals.


The metal structure on which the 40 iPad units are mounted, was made of materials recovered from the wreckage of 1995’s Hurricane Opal that had blown off a restaurant.


Since the 2011 grand opening at studio b. in Alys Beach,

Florida, gallery owner and curator Colleen Duffley has presented Light Impressions in several venues across the United States. The installation has also traveled to art events in Miami (during the prestigious Art Basel), Austin, TX and Los Angeles for the Mobile Arts Festival.
