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.

Pow, Right in the Kisbet

Benjamin Lowy's photographs of Turkey's Kirkpinar wrestling festival are featured in the March issue of Men's Health magazine. In the annual contest, which takes place in the town of Edirne, 150 miles northwest of Istanbul, wrestlers coat themselves with olive oil before each bout and attempt to pin their opponents to the ground or lift them above their shoulders, often by grabbing an opponent's leather pants, called a kisbet.
