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.

Benghazi, Libya | July 9, 2012 Eritrean and Somali migrants congregate in an IDP camp that the Libyan authorities have sequestered them into. Many complain about their living conditions and security from armed Libyan militias. They are virtual prisoners within the camp. “Ramadan won’t be hard,” said one Somali man, “we are already starving.” #iLibya #photography #photojournalism #documentary #hipstamatic #magnumfoundation #emergencyfund #Libya #somali #eritrean #migrants #idp (Taken with Instagram)
