This blog is part of a project borne during my travels as a professional photojournalist. For years, I have worked with bulky digital cameras, always mindful of the technical maneuvers from setting the shutter speed and aperture to editing and toning on a computer screen. In the last few years I have discovered that my iPhone has allowed me to capture scenes without feeling that I am once again on the job. To “point and shoot” has been a liberating experience. It has allowed me to rediscover the excitement of seeing imperfections and happy accidents rendered through the lens of my handheld device. I am able to create imagery, edit, and transmit all the images straight to this blog, creating a modern and efficient workflow for the most inefficient of pursuits - self expression. - Benjamin Lowy All Images are copyrighted @Benjamin Lowy

33rd Street Walkscape | July 22, 2014

We live in a time of radical documentation: Cameras are within easy reach and CCTVs record our every move. Our landscape and street corners are painstakingly documented. Time and space are mere elements to be observed, recorded and stored away.

My response has been to deconstruct and compress all these elements into a kaleidoscope of overlapping imagery. Walkscapes presents both sides of our visual tendencies: the obsessive documentation of the quotidian and our growing need to retain a modicum of anonymity.

The images are made from 30-100 merged pictures taken as I walk down a city block. All are made “in-phone” at the moment of capture.

34th Street Walkscape | June 21, 2014

I’m back in NYC after a show in Italy where I introduced a new body of work.

I call them Walkscapes. In a nutshell I am aiming to compress the over documented world we live in. Most of the images are made from 30-100 merged pictures taken as I walk down a city block. All are made “in-phone” at the moment of capture.

Cortona Walkscape | July 21, 2014

I’m currently in Cortona, Italy for the On the Move photo festival where I am part of the Goin’ Mobile group show featuring a brand new body of work.

The images are conceptual in nature and while I developed the technique and idea on a separate Instagram account, I’ve decided that it’s now time to introduce this new idea.
