Oh yeah baby, this is the moment you and we all have been waiting for. Excitement all over the place. Rampapam....the Grand Opening party of the Lomography Gallery Store in Amsterdam! Read on to find out all the details, party facts and most important - make sure you'll be there!
Yes, it was a challenge. A big challenge to find the perfect spot and the perfect building for the very first Lomography Gallery Store in the Netherlands. We all knew there is one neighborhood in Amsterdam where we want open this store – the nine streets along the western canal belt and in the heart of the urban culture centre of Amsterdam. And lucky lomo people we are, we managed to find this amazing place right on the corner of the Wolvenstraat and the Herengracht. An authentic canal house measuring 200 square meters spread out over 4 floors – the building of the Lomography Gallery Store in Amsterdam is unique. The Lomography Gallery Store offers, beneath the lomographic product range on the ground and first floor, special lomographic services on the upper levels. Exhibitions, product launches, parties and workshops will make sure that there is always something going on in the Lomography Gallery Store Amsterdam.
