Have you come across “contemporary art” where you have seen some strange looking artwork and wonder what it is all about? You might also have noticed that photography is one of the mediums used by artists.

By looking at how and why some artists use certain features of photography in their artwork, we will appreciate their artistic intentions and gain some inspiration to try our hands at creating our own. We will also look at some of the functions and applications in our mobile devices that will help us produce our photo artwork.
