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

Gharyan, Libya | July 23, 2012 In a dusty detention center, Illegal migrants from Niger wait to be processed and receive travel papers, enabling them to be repatriated via a UN chartered plane. Libyan authorities have been increasing hostile to African migrants and the threat of deportation includes transportation via a truck through the blisteringly hot Sahara. #iLibya #photography #photojournalism #documentary #hipstamatic #magnumfoundation #emergencyfund #libya #tripoli #migrants #african #detention (Taken with Instagram)
