Photos by Q. Sakamaki


Acclaimed photographer Q. Sakamaki is among the professionals now using iPhones to take high-quality photos. He likes to use Hipstergram to customize his pictures to resemble old Polaroids, as with these images of his from this past May Day in New York. Admittedly, when shooting a portrait, Sakamaki said he has to brace the iPhone against his body to stabilize it. The former East Villager is an elite “conflict zone” photographer, who has covered wars around the globe. Asked if he would use a cell phone to take photos on the front lines since it’s a bit tricky to focus and shoot quickly, he noted, often in conflict situations, photographers don’t have time to focus before they shoot, even when using traditional gear.
