No this isn't another multiple exposure competition. Instead, you'll have to scour approximately 1.9% of the world population to get a chance to shoot twins! They aren't exactly endangered so you shouldn't have too much trouble finding them.
Twins are definitely trouble. Ask Hugh Hefner and he’s sure to tell you about how the Shannon Twins misbehaved so much that they had to be kicked out of the Playboy mansion. But amidst all these, twins still hold sway over us as they possess an unmistakable appeal. This could be the sheer eeriness of seeing double, or the mere wonder and awe of towards genetics and science.
So for this month, your Mission is to shoot some twins. They could be your childhood friends whose names you kept mixing up, or event he Olsen twins if you have access to them. Please note that we’re not looking for multiple exposure shots but photos of actual twins themselves. We know that this challenge is a bit difficult but the prize is definitely worth the trouble as we’re giving Piggies enough to twin prizes as well – Fisheye 1 Blue Pearl and Red! The winners will also receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes!

Barbora Smoláková's first brush with lomography started with a Diana F+ Deluxe Kit. With its variety of accessories, the Diana F+ allowed her to explore the endless possibilities of creative photography. In this interview, she opens up about her experience shooting with this versatile camera and how it helped her appreciate the beauty of ordinary things.
Mary Robinson has shown a natural talent for photography even at such an early age. Even when she was first featured on the Magazine in 2011, her images already made an impression on the Lomography Community. Her work has evolved in the span of four years, but its quaint beauty remains.
A hat is in the position to be noticed before any other item of clothing. Its shape and texture can immediately call to mind cultural associations. A cloche is to 1920s fashion as a picture hat is to the 1900s. The wide-brimmed or fur-lined variety, on the other hand, is more functional for tribes.

As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
Although its existence has always been known among locals, it was only in 1913 when the rest of the world was introduced to the Inca site of Machu Picchu through an expedition headed by Yale University and professor Hiram Bingham.
