Great Landscapes Lent Focus by the iPhone

New York City-based freelance photographer Sam Alive's project “Through the Phone” features landscapes and urban cityscapes as seen through an iPhone. Adding interest to Alive's photographs is the juxtaposition between the crisp, clear image within the frame of the iPhone camera and the blurred bokeh effect of the real background behind it. Shots were photographed through a digital lens. 

The artist's project began in 2012; since then he has traveled and photographed Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong and San Francisco, in addition to his home city of New York. Alive says,

“Life is like an adventure, because you never know what is going to happen next; you only have one life, all we can do until we die is live everyday to the best of our ability. As long as I am still alive, I will continue to take pictures everyday of my life.”

That is correct. Currently I have conflicting information as to whether or not the photo is captured with another iPhone. I'm emailing the photographer and I'll update you (as well as the story, if need be) for clarity. Thanks for your comment.
