The Natural History Museum in London - well worth a visit!
Last weekend I went to the Natural History Museum with a group of my fellow Lomographers on a Lomowalk – ‘Walk Like a Lomosaurus’. I had never been to the Natural History Museum…and that is a mistake! I loved it! I felt like a little kid running around looking at all the animals. The dinosaurs are definitely the most popular, and as I went on a Saturday the queues were quite long and it was quite crowded. But in your hurry to look at the popular dinosaurs don’t forget the rest of the museum! From monkeys to the extinct dodo – there is a terrific variety! I especially like how they have the monkey skeletons in various swinging positions – making it seem like they are swinging from the ceiling. The building itself is also really cool – the interior is decorated with carved animals – I love the carved monkeys throughout the building! The Natural History Museum is definitely worth a visit!
The Science Museum in London is set to play host to a showcase of some of the earliest known images taken by photography pioneers, selected from the collection of the world's oldest surviving photographic society.
This August, we bring you back to your roots and explore the wonders of nature! First, we cook up a storm with a film soup experiment. Followed by nature photowalks at beautiful scenic parks in Singapore to unearth the tips & tricks of trouble exposure, as well as the unique methods to perfect our macro shots. To cap off the learning month, we'll gather on a cozy Friday night for a new special sharing series by the Lomography Community -- with Sharing Session #1: Nature.
To complement “David Bowie is,” a touring retrospective exhibit organized by The Victoria and Albert Museum, London that revolves around the prolific career of David Bowie and is currently ongoing at the Museum of Image and Sound (MIS) in São Paulo, Brazil, the MIS as part of its Stereo MIS series of musical projects, held a David Bowie Tribute concert featuring a few of Brazil’s homegrown talents earlier this month.

Antwerp. To hear this name is enough for fashionistas from around the world to make them weak with excitement. Home to a gazillion bloggers, fancy and less fancy boutiques, and of course, the only Belgian Lomography Headquarters, Antwerp's definitely worth the visit. But behold: you will find much more than you expect in this vibrant city!
During the 1980s Bob Mazzer worked as a projectionist at a porn cinema. He began photographing his daily commute to and from work on the Underground. What followed was a collection of photographs that capture the cultural and social history of London in the 1980's.
