A Smashing Birthday Party at Lomography Gallery Store Amsterdam


There’s no doubt about it: Lomgraphy Gallery Store Amsterdam’s first birthday party was AWESOME. Beers from Palm, rock ’n’ roll music from Bat Country, some dancing tunes from DJ Frank and hot spring rolls from Olivier’s car with a built-in-fryer. A recap for our amazing first birthday party!

The Lomography Gallery Store Amsterdam opened on September 13th 2011. It’s unbelievable how fast that first year went by. Our first birthday calls for a celebration with balloons, garlands, music and a bizarre amount of beers!

Just to top it off the BIG sale at the Lomography Gallery Store started the same evening. It was at 18:00h that the first lomographers and guests came in, to buy a new camera, stationary or film, or just to take a photo in front of our LomoWall.

…and amongst the guests was our Lomo Amigo Nout as well. Completely undercover, as you see.

Our favorite band from Amsterdam Bat Country (you might remember them from their one week of rock&roll met Boris) played two sets on our first floor. It was super loud and cool, I sure think the whole Herengracht has enjoyed it!

In between the live sets from Bat Country our DJ Frank played some fine tunes and around 20:00h the time had come to cut the cake! A cake topped with a beautiful photo from our store and one birthday candle.

In the meantime our friend Olivier parked his 1968 Tin Snail in front of the store to heat up the fryer. With over 150 spring rolls were quite a cool…uhm hot addition to the snacks at the party.

Oh and what’s a party without confetti? BOOOM! Confetti all-over-the-place. Everywhere, even in the cake. Just the way we like it.

To top it off one of our favorite regulars – Tessa Velthuis – came to play a nice VJ set. All video footage combined with a beamer and a huge projection on the wall next door it was quite a sight!

We would like to thank everyone who came to party with us – it couldn’t have been more epic. Hope to see you at the next Lomo party!
