Our Amsterdam-archive is growing day by day. But guess what – we need more! Why? Read on and you’ll discover it yourself.

You know our Lomography Gallery Stores pop up over the entire world like mushrooms. And guess which one is next? Oh yeah – Amsterdam! It won’t take long anymore until we open our doors. As we speak we are working hard to set up the store in the centre of Amsterdam. And like any other Lomography Gallery Store, this one will also contain a city related LomoWall. It will be the eye-catcher of the place, without a doubt. And you know why? Because of all great lomographs made by you! So this is call to anyone who liked to have their pictures exposed on this exclusive and permanent wall. We need them – now!

It’s time to get creative, it’s time to share your lomography archives! This is a great opportunity to really explore amazing Amsterdam as a Lomographer and find out all the picturesque squares, ‘gezellige’ neighborhoods and chill out parks. Capture all this in colorful lomographs and share your evidence with us.

    This is awesome news, I go to Amsterdam a few times a year! I fly over at the very end of August (29th) for a week, as it's my 21st birthday! Please tell me the store will be open by then?! I'll have lots of birthday money to waste :)
