In lieu of the heated iPhone/Instagram debates, Wired magazine published an article entitled “Stop Arguing About Instagram and Go Make a Picture.” Ben Lowy, 2012 Emergency Fund photographer, has found himself in the middle of the debate with his current iPhone project in Libya. Here’s what Wired had to say about Lowy and iPhone photography, and we agree.
Ben Lowy, a photographer we have great respect for, started publishing his iPhone photos from Libya (shot with his very own Hipstamatic lens) on Storyboard.
iPhone photography is here to stay. And not only that. Photographers like Mangin and Lowy are proving, in real time, that this kind of photography has value and contributes to the richness of the contemporary photographic world.
