The Horniman Museum and gardens stand on the brow of the hill in Forest Hill, South London. The museum has unique collections of musical instruments, artifacts from around the world, and enough stuffed animals to make a taxidermist squirm!
The Museum was the idea of the Victorian tea trader F.R. Horniman who began collecting specimens, whilst on his travels around the world in the 1860s. Originally, the collection had just been in his home but it grew to such proportions that he decided to commission Charles Harrison Townsend to design this beautiful building.
Opening in 1901, the original collection was the obvious natural history specimens and also the musical instruments which are the pride of the museum and an important source of research for all those in the U.K. and Europe. Overtime, and even within my days of visiting, there have been great changes to the way the museum looks and works. The ‘new’ additions to the building compliment it architecturally and also support it’s green status. The aquarium considering its size is great fun for all and there are interactive aspects, with live bees coming and going through a hole in the wall in a display in one room!

Chateaux served as houses of powerful lords, often of nobility and royalty. Most French castles reek of relevant history and monarchical drama, which makes them more interesting. And though France has moved on from the monarchy with liberté, égalité, fraternité, they remain strong and solid as tourist attractions. Thankfully, Lomographers have been around France and regularly share images of these amazing castles.
We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
