About Moving Mountains and Penelope Umbrico:

In October 2012, Aperture presented Penelope Umbrico’s Moving Mountains (1850–2012) as part of Aperture Remix, an artist commission and exhibition for which Umbrico worked with the Aperture Masters of Photography series. Using a series of camera apps and filters on her iPhone, she created new photographs of the mountains that appear throughout the series, drawing on images from Edward Weston, Wynn Bullock, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, and others.
