The Guvnor's Knowledge


The Guvnor knows his apples, and he knows London like the back of his hand. A true Londoner, he was born to the sound of the bow bells and used to walk 15 miles to school in the snow, with no shoes on. He's brought together 50 of his favourite LomoLocations, so join him for a virtual tour of London...

    Photographer Gilbert Blecken Captures Iconic Musicians on Film

    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.
