Shooting digital in Iraq: Ben Lowy

Here’s what started out to be a dry story that listed the equipment Ben Lowy uses in the field, but later he opens up and give an account of a terrifying but challenging time for him. Great photos too, and not all what you’d expect from Iraq.

“There is a certain attraction to doing conflict photography,” he says. “I think anybody who says there isn’t, doesn’t really look at themselves. You’re your own personal Arnold Schwarzenegger. You get to run headlong into danger. And there’s something really attractive about that. But you also have a tremendous priviledge to be witnessing history for everyone else in the world.”
