New York City, NY | August 2014

This is a lategram from a few weeks ago. I don’t usually post selfies - actually never - but @lenadunham was super awesome during our long photoshoot. 

So of course we had to pose with $3000 real blond hair wigs. Closest I’ll ever get to having hair on my head again. 

It comes out this weekend in the NYT Magazine - and is online now.

It takes a strong soul and indelible spirit to transform one of the hardest and challenging life experiences into an empowering example of survival and creativity. My amazing wife @marvilacar has done just that. 
Please take the time - on National Suicide Prevention Day - to read her blog on Huffington Post and to support her new campaign @1in20

23rd Street Walkscape | August 2014
Today my Walkscape project was featured by National Geographic Proof - http://proof.nationalgeographic.com/2014/09/08/benjamin-lowy-walks-his-way-to-serendipity/

More work can be found on an Instagram account dedicated to these images @conceptual_ben 

In a nutshell this project is best described with the following statement. 

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.
