Hipstamatics only getting Hipper...

A few months ago, I wrote a post mourning the loss of my iphone, and with it the fabulous Hipstamatic app.

It seems I am not the only one to have fallen in love with this digital way of creating retro looking pictures. Now there is an exhibition devoted to the Hipstamatic photograph, at Orange Dot Gallery in Bloomsbury. I'm hoping to get a chance to see it... it's on til 31st January...

In the meantime, I was excited to discover a blog dedicated to the app, with a link to the website of the man who created it. It describes it's history - it really did exist as a camera and there is a sad story which goes with it. The Guardian thinks this story is dubious, but I wanna believe it... a sucker for marketing, me.


  1. Haha wow I can't believe I didn't hear of this, would have love to have seen it!

  2. Just checked the story out - that's great marketing!

  3. It is really a great way to market, great stuff!

  4. INteresting, I think the Hipsters are taking over, don't you Robert?

  5. Was actually a really good show, some great pictures!
