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 21, 2012 A lone Libyan woman walks a deserted pathway in Tripoli’s old city. During Ramadan the city is a virtual ghost town until the late afternoon, with most residents avoiding the mid-summer heat while fasting. #iLibya #photography #photojournalism #documentary #hipstamatic #magnumfoundation #emergencyfund #libya #tripoli #ramadan (Taken with Instagram)
