In the last two posts you have read that we are opening a brand new Gallery Store in Antwerp, and that it will be in the hippest street in the Diamond city – the Kammenstraat. We are very proud of that and are excited to open the doors for you. But before we can do that, a lot needs to be done still. Off course rebuilding but also preparing the Grand Opening Party!

The rebuilding of the store is progressing more smoothly than we expected. Our hero Patrick – who also built the store in Amsterdam – has been working in the Kammenstraat for the last two weeks. Tearing down walls, painting wood and installing heaters.

This Sunday, Charly from Lomography HQ will arrive in Antwerp with display materials and the LomoWall to decorate the store. Yes, that’s right, the LomoWall is finished and ready to be attached to the wall! A very exciting job and off course a milestone of our great Lomography Antwerp adventure.

Months ago we asked you to send in your greatest Antwerp photos in the Antwerp LomoWall Rumble. There were over 450 submissions, thank you! We’ve put Dr.Lab to work and with his team, he selected the best photos and created a big work of art. All the panels are packed and ready for Charly.

Now, you must be curious which pictures are used for the LomoWall? This is still a surprise, but these are the Lomographers whose photos were selected:

alexstoica, anteros, arianogoesloco, brommi, fmadera, gepo1303, jasperdrumont, karlijne, letterkoekje, lihooi, lucklik, marjanbuning, mil0ukuh, mizzfonky, mrmaart, nassruggiero, pinkpix, sadmafioso, saintempire, sara81, shie, stienfranssens en wendyraeann.

They have all won 5 Piggies. Congratulations!

    The European Dream - Selfies from Oranienplatz: Exhibition in Berlin

    In more ways than one, Lomography is an art form as much as it is an effective tool to communicate. This is proven in the politically-driven exhibition “Selfies from Oranienplatz," of which the opening event will be taking place on the 16th of October as part of the European Month of Photography in Berlin.
