The Finishing Touch

3

After months of sweat and hard work, the time has come! The cameras are on their spots, the glass is put, so the paper can be removed from the windows. The Lomography Gallery Store is finished!

Piece by piece we transformed our beautiful building on the Herengracht from an empty building to a nice Lomography Gallery Store! From a new floor, to our unique LomoWall, from stock to store staff – everything is up to the last detail. Below you see our brand-new store-manager Jos, he is also eager to start!

…and store crewmember Laura as well :)

…and Madri is also very excited!

Today is the big day. The day that the work is finished and we can go celebrate on our amazing party at our Dutch Lomography Gallery Store! The cold beer is already waiting for us.

When are you coming to visit to sniff the smell of fresh rolls of film and brand-new cameras? Of course, you are invited to join us at the opening of the store tonight. You can’t make it? No worries – upward of tomorrow the store is open 7 days a week.

We are looking forward to it!! Catch you all tonight!

Lomografische groeten,
Team Lomography the Netherlands

PS: all pictures in this article are made with the Lomo LC-Wide and Instant Back+.

    Congratulations. I was just in Amsterdam, at the beginning of July. There was a little variety store that was selling plastic cameras (on the Princengraght. I asked if there was a Lomography Society and was told there wasn't one. Well now there is. I took , I think, many beautiful pictures in Amsterdam with my Diana F and Holga.
