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.

Tom’s River, NJ | November 3, 2012 a dejected Richard Holmquist sits in an impromptu Red Cross refugee center in the Tom’s River high school auditorium after being evacuated from Seaside Heights. Richard and his wife Natalie have been living in the beachfront community since 1953 in a house his father bought in 1945. The house was destroyed. #photography #photojournalism #documentary #mobilephotography #newjersey #seasideheights #sandy #hurricanesandy #refugee (at Toms River High School North)
