“Good art doesn’t follow dots or lines, otherwise we would still be drawing like we did in kindergarten with paint-by-number books,” writes photojournalist Benjamin Lowy, editor of the most recently published Your Shot story. “Art—and for this class specifically, street photography—is about expressing yourself and asking questions through image-making about the world around you. Some approaches may be more successful than others, depending on what you hope to create.”
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.
Benjamin Lowy offers commentary on Composition, Lighting, Creativity and Story for his One Shot Assignment for Street Photographers around the world, e.g., Turkey, India, USA, Sweden, Hungary. Italy, France, Ecuador, United Arab Republic.
