A Lamb Named Beauty shows the life of two twin sisters Kimberly and Gwendolyn. The series started in 2007, when the sisters were 10 years old. I tried to give a candid impression about how the twins take care of each other, and the many animals that are gathered around them. The twins seem to live in a domain all of their own, taking strength from their love from one another.

Long before iPhones and Instagram: 60 years of one Dutch girl's "selfies" firing a gun into the camera! Outrageous lifetime photo concept — watch her age in the same pose — a split second after she pulls the trigger of her rifles — from age 16 to 88.
Black and white photography holds a graphic emotional power unlike any other form of the medium. Here are 14 stories published by LensCulture that were among the most popular with our readers worldwide this year. Enjoy!
