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

Tripoli, Libya | July 18, 2012 Waiting in the shade underneath a highway overpass, migrant workers from Ghana and Nigeria hope to be hired by Libyans for menial day labor work “I miss home, I miss my family,” said Ishmael, 31, a laborer from Ghana, “I’ve been in Libya for 4 months now, but can’t get home. [it would] cost $1600 to return home, [and I would return] without no money. I hate it here, it’s dangerous and I can’t even find a football club.” #iLibya #photography #photojournalism #documentary #hipstamatic #magnumfoundation #emergencyfund #libya #tripoli #migrant #labor (Taken with Instagram)
