We hit the streets of London last Saturday with the Lubitel 166+, and a roll of our very own Lomography B&W 400 film. All of us were on a mission to search for some gentlemen with well groomed moustaches to capture the perfect Mo-trait! We even went crazy with some stick-on-taches for the ladies.
We started our Lubitel 166+ workshop with a crash course on how to get the best from this wondrous camera. We peered through the little viewfinder and tested out the different shutter speeds and apertures. Then we loaded our very own Lomography B&W 400 film and got ready to seek out the perfect Mo-trait. Before we left the shop we all put on our sticky-taches and got to work.
There was lots of concentration to get the best shot. Some of the group spotted the chance for a big group Mo-trait, some came up with some interesting ways to use the Lubitel, and all of us found some funny places to stick their ’staches ! Once we all finished our film, we re-grouped back in the store to get our masterful mo-trait film developed. What Movember fun we had!

Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
