This exhibition reflects Lowy’s view that the rise of mobile photography is not a threat to 
professional photography. Instead mobile phones free photographers from heavy 
equipment and enable greater intimacy with subjects. The result is stunningly original and
candid photography. 
Benjamin Lowy is an award-winning photographer based in New York City. He received a 
BFA from Washington University in St. Louis in 2002 and began his career covering the 
Iraq War in 2003. Since then he has covered major stories worldwide.

In 2004 Lowy attended the World Press Joop Swart Masterclass, he was named in Photo District News 30 and his images of Iraq were chosen by PDN as some of the most iconic of the 21st century.

Lowy has received awards from World Press Photo, POYi, PDN, Communication 
Arts, American Photography, and the Society for Publication Design. Lowy has been a 
finalist for the Oskar Barnak Award, a finalist in Critical Mass, included in Magenta Flash 
Forward 2007, as well as the OSI Moving Walls 16 exhibit.

His work from Iraq, Darfur, and Afghanistan have been collected into several gallery and museum shows, and shown at the Tate Modern, SF MOMA, Houston Center for Photography, Invalides, and Arles. His work from Darfur appeared in the SAVE DARFUR media campaign.
