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 human face has been a never-ending study since the beginning of art history. Recognition has been part of the study, and mostly, it's the most defining, prominent figures of public life that are under artistic examinations. Photography does it as well.

Traveling and taking photographs goes hand in hand. Ardent globetrotter Noé McCrae (@noafromdablock) started his journey across different countries as a means of self-discovery. An interest to document these travels comes naturally. So now, each place he visits is carefully composed into minimalist frames using disposable cameras.
The TEN AND ONE Residency Week has been very intense and full of activities. From 11 to 18 November, we did LomoWalks around Vienna, guided visits to museums and magazine editorial office, a workshop, a trip to Bratislava, worked on our LomoWall and of course LomoLunch and LomoDinner. We had the opportunity to attend a Cyanotype Workshop at Lomography Head Quarter held by Michael Wuermer, a young and nice photographer and printer.
