    "Most of the time [Floyd Mayweather] acted like I wasn’t there, which is something I’ve come to expect and even relish when working on ‘day in the life’ features for my clients. But having Mayweather look me in the eye and acknowledge my presence was the real challenge." - Reportage photographer Benjamin Lowy, who recently spoke with Rangefinder Magazine about his portraits of boxer Floyd Mayweather.

    A US soldier, using a gun-mounted infrared targeting laser, marked a landing zone for incoming transport helicopters as soldiers with the 509th Infantry Division and the 3rd Infantry’s Aviation Brigade launched a joint air assault on July 15, 2007 in Iskandariya, Iraq, raiding over 30 targeted sites in a large rural area. The raid targeted IED production and a search for suspected insurgents. This image, which was taken through night-vision goggles, appears in the book “Iraq | Perspectives,” by Reportage photographer Benjamin Lowy, who spent 2003 through 2008 photographing the war and subsequent civil strife. In 2014, Iskandariya is still host to violent attacks, with a suicide bombing killing two and injuring 10 earlier this month. (Photo by Benjamin Lowy/Reportage by Getty Images)

    A photo from Benjamin Lowy's trip to South Sudan in December, when fighting broke out in Juba between government forces and supporters of a former vice president. In an editorial today, The New York Times writes that “a staggering 3.7 million people, roughly one-third of the population, are facing starvation in South Sudan, where a civil war has created a humanitarian catastrophe.” They add that United Nations officials say South Sudan needs $230 million more in the next 60 days to avoid the worst starvation in Africa since the 1980s, when hundreds of thousands perished in Ethiopia.

It is looking increasingly like a campaign of ethnic cleansing began in Juba and spread to the rest of the country, pitting two tribal groups - the Dinka and the Nuer - against each other. #photojournalism #documentary #reportage #southsudan #juba

    Pow, Right in the Kisbet

    Benjamin Lowy's photographs of Turkey's Kirkpinar wrestling festival are featured in the March issue of Men's Health magazine.
