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.

Sana’a, Yemen | April 16, 2013 Hundreds of Yemeni men take part in a massive Qat chew party during the wedding of the Yemeni Minister of Information’s son. Every tribal leader, the real power in Yemen, as well as members of Al Qaeda took part in the wedding party. Qat has a long social history in Yemen, and these events are some of the only venues where friends and enemies can have peaceful interaction. #photojournalism #documentary #reportage #iphoneography #iphoneonly #igers #streetphotography #yemen #sana #mobilephotography #picoftheday #photooftheday #qat
