Members of the Libyan Shield military unit from Zlitan patrol the volatile desert region bordering the pro-Gaddafi enclave of Bani Walid and revolutionary Misrata.
For the next week, conflict photographer Ben Lowy, on a grant from the Magnum Foundation’s Emergency Fund, will be shooting from Libya on the first-ever photojournalism inspired Hipstamatic lens — and posting exclusively to Tumblr. Check out Lowy’s Tumblr and Storyboard for more. Also see our interview with the photographer.
