These Benjamin Lowy photos show the darker side of humanity’s penchant for violence in this dark, but utterly realist collection.

By focusing exclusively on conflict and destruction, his works serve as a stark foil to the more popular and positive landscape, fashion and sports photography that seems to dominate pop culture. In this way, Benjamin Lowy photos take on a higher level of immediacy and importance in that they refuse to be ignored or forgotten once seen. Long after you have forgotten what Victoria Secret’s latest super sexualized spread was about, you will still be able to recall the impact of many of these jarringly important pictures.
