>Do cell phone photos count as crappy/krappy?

If they are krappy picture mine. In a few years collectors
will be scrambling to get the first generation picture phones so they can
"make art." ;^) No seriously, the point is that the krappy kamera itself
should introduce some softness/abberation/flare, you know, something that
adds some weird charm to the image quality. Lack of control and cheapness
are important attributes.

I heard from SOHO gallery today that they are still getting a boatload of
last-minute entries. You could drop one in their mail slot this weekend
and probably still get in the show. Looks like there will be something
like 20 trays of slides to judge. They better bring in some good pizza
for the juror!
