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 I July 24, 2012

During the early morning ours after breaking their Ramadan fast, young Libyan men gather at a Tripoli pier to drift and drag race their cars. In typical Libyan fashion, the over-the-top dragging display destroys the vehicles in favor of reckless showmanship. (Photo by Benjamin Lowy/Getty Reportage)

Conflict photographer Ben Lowy, on a grant from the Magnum Foundation’s Emergency Fund, has spent the last two weeks shooting from Libya on a photojournalism inspired Hipstamatic lens — and posting exclusively to Tumblr. Check out Lowy’s Tumblr and Storyboard’s interview with the photographer.
