Conflict photography of Benjamin Lowy

Benjamin Lowy, a well known photojournalist, creates snaps of great beauty while working in the deepest corners of the planet where conflict reigns. For the Sydney Writers’ Festival as well as the Head On Photography Festival, Lowy speaks with Pip Cummings about art, beauty, and ethics in photojournalism.

Even when Benjamin Lowy was a kid, he used to go to New York’s Jones Beach to see the 3.5 metre swells which had been sickenby Hurricane Gloria. He told that he ran right into the ocean and that probably explains a little bit about who he is.

33 year old Lowy is a well known conflict photographer, whose pictures from  Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq and Darfur have been hailed by the Magnum Foundation Emergency fund, World Press Photo as well as the ICP Infinity Award for Photojournalism. His snaps were also exhibited at San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art and the Tate Modern.

His love for photography was discovered by accident. Both his mom and grandmother were good painters and Benjamin always knew he really wanted to work in arts field. He told that he was also a kind of daydreamer, always reading science fiction, looking at comic books as a child.

He was studying to be a comic book illustrator and he often relied on drawing figures from photography books and one day he pulled well known photojournalist James Nachtwey’s Inferno and the die was cast. He told that he sat there for several hours and just looked at those snaps and it altered something inside of me.

Dorset Wildlife Trust’s photography contest

Young people are being asked to take their cameras or mobile phones to click top shots of wildlife in this spring. Dorset Wildlife Trust are looking for pictures for its monthly photographic contest for under-18s.

Dorset Wildlife Trust’s community conservation officer Catherine Mason told that The Pat Dolbear Photographic Award for Young People targets to get more young people interested in some of their smaller nature by using their digital cameras or mobile phones.

This award is photographer Ken Dolbear’s brainchild. He is a long-standing member of DWT and he is dedicated to the memory of his wife Pat. Catherine insists that people often overlook smaller creatures around us, therefore, it is time that people give a proper look at at them. She suggested to look at the sheltered spots like under logs for species hiding from the cold, or venture out on a sunny day and find an early bumble bee or beetle.

Prizes (up to £25 Amazon gift tokens) are handed to one or more of the photographers who, in the opinion of the judges, submit the best work each month. The monthly winners as well as runners-up work will be posted on Facebook and Twitter and more importantly it may also feature in DWT’s e-news bulletin Wildlife Matters.

3 students from Salisbury’s St Edmund’s School won the January wildlife photography prize for their pictures taken on Brownsea Island. Hannah Hutchby and Holly Lucas were among the winners, and Lauren Humphries was the runner up.
