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

Sirte, Libya | July 16, 2012 Libyan residents of the city of Sirte walk through the ravaged remains of mortared and bullet riddled buildings. The city is home to a large population of Gaddafi’s tribe and still supports the dead dictator. They feel that no reconciliation is possible while they are policed by the Misrata militia and Islamist brigades. #iLibya #photography #photojournalism #documentary #hipstamatic #magnumfoundation #emergencyfund #libya #sirte (Taken with Instagram)
