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

Staten Island Ferry, NY | October 18, 2013 A tourist points as a woman, her Hijab blowing in the wind stands perched on the front edge of the Staten Island ferry, watching as we approach and pass the Statue of Liberty. This is pretty much the same sight my father and grandparents saw as they arrived into the US over 60 years ago. All the other polarizing and political wrangling aside, the US is still a land of opportunity and hope.
