As far as the Word of the Month: August winners are concerned, the spy game is alive and well. Keep it on the down low though, you never know who might be listening!
The world of espionage is something we really have no idea about so we’re forced to imagine and fantasize through the silver screen. James Bond, anyone? Or would you prefer someone a tad sexier like Austin Powers? In any case, here’s five of Lomography’s best spies from the Word of the Month: August competition. Congratulations!
