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

Roxbury, NY | November 1, 2012 John Lennon, 85, mourns over the loss and destruction of his neighborhood for over 80 years. “I’ve never been to the Statue of Liberty, I’ve never been to the Empire State Building… This was my home… And now [rebuilding] will take years. I don’t know what we are gonna do.” #photography #photojournalism #documentary #mobilephotography #rockaway #roxbury #nyc #sandy #hurricanesandy (at Roxbury, NY)
