Benjamin Lowy ist Fotoreporter und war früher mit seinen Digitalkameras unterwegs. Jetzt hat er das iPhone als Device entdeckt, mit dem man Bilder machen und direkt in das eigenen Blog hochladen kann, ohne Umweg über den Computer und die entsprechenden Bearbeitungsprogramme.

Momentan ist er in Libyen unterwegs und bloggt aus der Gegend von Bengasi beeindruckende Bilder...

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 two 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.
