About Benjamin Lowy

Lowy+Lacar is an award-winning photography and filmmaking team specializing in authentic, documentary style storytelling. We started our careers as photojournalists, and have seen the impact of compelling storytelling. We believe in stories that not only inform, but also pique our curiosity, inspire us, create a ripple within our communities, and make lasting impressions. We work with big and small brands, startups, non-profit organizations, etc. Ben Lowy started his career as a conflict photographer in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, he swims with sharks. He has eaten monkey brains and boiled larvae. He’s climbed a mountain or three. He’s flown backwards off an aircraft carrier, and crawled through a 20 year old tunnel 1000 ft. underground. He’s done many things in the name of photography, and hasn’t been kicked out of the house yet. Marvi Lacar is the brains behind the braun, the Head Office, the M, the Batman to his Robin. Photojournalism has led her down a long and twisted road that has helped her make lasting connections with people and creatures around the world. She now directs and produces with her partner, Ben, who believes her superpower is telling stories that make grown men cry.

    On February 14, 2021, a winter storm hit Texas. Met with freezing temperatures combined with a disabled power grid, a small organization fought to save the lives of thousands of cold stunned sea turtles that would have otherwise frozen to death and drowned. With the help of a community of volunteers, Sea Turtle, Inc. sheltered around 5500 sea turtles during the largest cold stun event in recorded US history.

  • An Anthology of the Circle

    • Commercial DP
    • Corporate Videographer

    The circle is a universal shape encountered both in nature and man made designs. Its symbolism spans across cultures depicting “the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness,” even creation itself. It is in the food that nourishes us, and the innovations that entertain and delight us. It is seen in both the profound and the mundane. This short video piece is an anthology of one of the oldest symbols revered by man, and a ubiquitous occurrence shaped by nature and adapted by humans.
