benlowy New York City, NY | September 17, 2014 These faces are inspiring new ways to think about sustainability and climate change. More interesting nuggets from yesterday's #TEDatUnilever event. (Clockwise from top left)

Keith Weed - "We’re the grit in the oyster that will hopefully create the pearl." Kees Kruythoff - "This must be the proudest day that I’ve worked for Unilever."
John Fluge - "Why would you ever set the bar low?"
Lord Stern - "You can’t make a peace treaty with a planet." [Sponsored]

  •   colette_st_jean There are a few people saying that capitalism needs to be addressed to really address the climate issue. The capitalist way of thinking, behaving, has turned us into droids! 5d
  •   maxleomax Green washing by @unileverusa? 5d
  •   jerseyguy What @colette_st_jean said. In spades! Capitalism is an out of control addiction. Unfortunately I'm not smart enough to suggest an alternative. 5d
  •   veryperryburns Trade based on a barter system, like most Native American nations. We negotiate every day already, but imagine if we had to give something to get something, what that would do to our entire frame of reference & existence on the planet? 4d
  •   jmurphpix @benlowy I was at the TED event and I'm a big fan of yours. Wish we could have met. 2d

Jonathan Atwood - "We're trying to touch people's hearts…this is not simply another story."
Anu Sridharan - "I really believe that very simple innovations can change the trajectory of the future."
Mike Brady - "If you don't give people a first chance, they're never going to make it."
Myriam Sidibe - "Early child death doesn't just make me sad, it makes me angry." Follow @UnileverUSA for more. [Sponsored]

This is a lategram from a few weeks ago. I don't usually post selfies - actually never - but @lenadunham was super awesome during our long photoshoot.
So of course we had to pose with $3000 real blond hair wigs. Closest I'll ever get to having hair on my head again.
It comes out this weekend in the NYT Magazine - and is online now.

It takes a strong soul and indelible spirit to transform one of the hardest and challenging life experiences into an empowering example of survival and creativity. My amazing wife @marvilacar has done just that.
Please take the time - on National Suicide Prevention Day - to read her blog on Huffington Post and to support her new campaign @1in20

benlowy 23rd Street Walkscape | August 2014
Today my Walkscape project was featured by National Geographic Proof - http://proof.nationalgeographic.com/2014/09/08/benjamin-lowy-walks-his-way-to-serendipity/

More work can be found on an Instagram account dedicated to these images @conceptual_ben
In a nutshell this project is best described with the following statement.
We live in a time of radical documentation: Cameras are within easy reach and CCTVs record our every move. Our landscape and street corners are painstakingly documented. Time and space are mere elements to be observed, recorded and stored away.
My response has been to deconstruct and compress all these elements into a kaleidoscope of overlapping imagery. Walkscapes presents both sides of our visual tendencies: the obsessive documentation of the quotidian and our growing need to retain a modicum of anonymity.
The images are made from 30-100 merged pictures taken as I walk down a city block. All are made “in-phone” at the moment of capture.
