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

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.
