World Teachers Day Rumble!


Most people take them for granted but they are one of the most important people out there. It’s time we give due credit to our teachers!

No matter how much you say you loved/hated/miss school, one thing is for certain: a teacher or professor has left an indelible mark on you. Be it his or her charming wit, inspiring attitude or brilliant discourses, at least one of them plays a formative role in our path to adulthood. That is why on October 5th, we will be celebrating World Teachers Day worldwide, in appreciation of the hard work and the long hours that they spend molding the future of our own respective nations. It is not a glamorous profession, nor is it a financially rewarding one at that. It is a calling and a vocation to share and guide the youth towards a formative path of learning, a path that no matter how old we become, never ends. Join Lomography in celebrating and appreciating what our teacher’s have done and will do for us.

    happy to see such a rumble!! Unfortunately I haven't shots from myself while teaching.... but submitted some shots from the school I visited in Burkina faso (the teachers there make an extraordinary work...) and from my empty classroom before the pupils come in... :)
