"Miguel's book is a masterpiece, a game changer, all shot on his iPhone. . . a triumph from the heart."
— Wendy Goodman, Design editor of New York Magazine

"A Wandering Eye: Travels with My Phone is out now and every picture is a delicious morsel, and you should go out and buy it. You know how you think all you need is a fancy phone to take transformative images? Well, think again. Miguel proves that whether he's shooting with an iPhone or a Hasselblad, you've gotta have THE EYE. And boy does he have it."
— Whitney Robinson, Editor-in-Chief of Elle Decor

Miguel Flores-Vianna’s childhood in Argentina was marked by two constants that he believes shaped the life he chose to lead: travel and books. Perhaps because the country feels like it is located at the end of the world, most Argentines are born with a good dose of wanderlust, and Flores-Vianna had a higher dose than normal.

Books helped him discover places both literally and figuratively, creating romantic visions of lands he wanted to visit, and he has gone on to document his peripatetic life with his camera, recording places as he feels they should be rather than as they are. In this irresistible volume, Flores-Vianna shares some 250 of his favorite images taken all over Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas—captured only with his smartphone—in the hope that viewers, seeing the world through his eyes, will learn to love these most wondrous of places as much as he does.

"Everyone’s a photographer now with the invention of the Smartphone. But Miguel Flores-Vianna has raised that ability to shoot from a phone to an art form. He is, after all, an artist."
Milieu Magazine

"Some Instagram feeds are superior to others — and for good reason. Take @miguelfloresvianna, a diary of exquisite houses and ancient sites snapped by Miguel Flores-Vianna ... more than 200 of those images, from a friend’s home in London to a palace in Turkey, make up his new book ... which promises to be the season’s ultimate escape."
Architectural Digest

"The quality of the iPhone camera-work here is a revelation. The images, many of them room-scapes and romantic domestic details from Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas offer a lush, coffee-table indulgence."
The Irish Examiner 

"We're long-time fans of Miguel Flores-Vianna--the peripatetic photographer's stunning images always make us swoon. But his new book, A Wandering Eye, comprised entirely of pictures he took with his smartphone completely blew us away."
— The Edit by Schumacher

"Not much escapes A Wandering Eye: Travels with My Phone. . . . It’s all casual corners and inexhaustible exotica, snapped with Flores-Vianna’s iPhone and an unintended primer in how to push the medium."
— Avenue
