Portrait photography is part of this month's theme. And not only that, our weekly tribute features another famous, influential portrait photographer, Julia Margaret Cameron. Join us in this black and white portrait rumble. Read on for more info.

Lomography Singapore plays host to Parallel Planets’ first exhibition, "Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition," featuring all-analog photography: a sea of black and white film portraits. This exhibition serves as a platform where both local and international photographers can express themselves by injecting individual perspectives into their craft. It also encourages viewers to look through the lens of the photographers, to see the subjects as who they are – flawed, alive, and breathing – and to also see beyond the façades we all choose to don.
