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.

Tripoli, Libya | July 20, 2012 Scores of Libyan men and boys swarm Tripoli’s port cornish after a lorry rolled off an overpass and into the sea on the first day of Ramadan in Libya’s capital. Traffic accidents and fights are frequent during the month of fasting. “It is Ramadan,” said a member of the crowd “Maybe the driver fell asleep. It is very hot.” #iLibya #photography #photojournalism #documentary #hipstamatic #magnumfoundation #emergencyfund #libya #tripoli #ramadan (Taken with Instagram)
