The Seoul week officially started! In the Amsterdam Gallery Store, we decided to go for the traditional approach! Of course with the unveiling of the very first customizable La Sardina cameras! Korean tacos, imported drinks and of course, a truckload of our Lomography friends without who we would’ve never been able to present you this insane amount of party pics!
February 23rd to 29th is all about the South Korean metropole Seoul. Lomography and the City of Seoul collaborated to get more people to love this beautiful metropole. Amongst other things, there was a spectacular 3-part rumble in which you could win a trip to Seoul! But also, a unique La Sardina camera, especially designed for this collaboration! The unveiling of the new La Sardina was a worldwide event in 7 Lomography Gallery Stores located all over the world. And of course, a spectacular launch on the website!
The Gallery Store in Amsterdam gave the camera its own spotlight!
The winning pictures of the Seoul All Around You Rumble were also present. The opening of this exhibition was part of our Seoul week kick off and the responses were very good.
The party was ON at the Gallery Store Amsterdam and the party planners did an awesome job! The catering was entirely Korean and super yummy, thanks to Yoki yo. Tasty tacos and great beer: the perfect tools for a party!
Also present: Some bottles of Korean spirits
Resident DJ Mr. Zoe was the man behind the turntables and he made sure everyone got moving!
On the second floor we had two awesome cut out dolls called Ying and Yang. As you’ve probably already guessed, the results of them combined with some pictures was pretty hilarious:
So, the upcoming week is all about Seoul. All the workshops and events have a Korean color and you can see some of the things we’ll be doing here:
Saturday February 25th | Movie Night: “The Host”
Want to snuggle up with us in one of the coolest locations in Amsterdam? That’s entirely possible during this movie night in the Gallery Store! We’ll get drinks and food sorted, you just come and watch one of the best monster movies ever made. Of course it’s a Korean one!
Sunday February 26th | Amsterdam Seoul Scavenger Hunt
Always wanted to participate in a scavenger hunt? Here’s your chance! We’ve prepared some awesome, wacky, scary, and cool challenges for you guys to accomplish!
Sunday February 26th | The Seoul Matrix Workshop
The real die-hards already helped out shooting our first LomoMatrix at the MadNes festival. It was an amazing adventure and the results were uber cool. We’d love to pump up the volume and top the one made with a Korean themed one! Come and help us out!
There are spaces available for all of the above mentioned events, so if you want to participate, alone, or with your taekwondo group, just email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot!
