phoneography is taking photographs with a mobile phone. The person executing the act is called a phoneographer.

The cellphone is usually always carried with a person, thus also the camera of the phone. The instant availability of the mobile phone camera has made it the number one photography tool for most people, even with it’s technical and quality shortcomings.

Even so, the “gritty” look of phoneographs has gained popularity even in editorial and commercial use, probably as it has a feel of “reality” that polished stock photographs is lacking.
