What you'll do

We all have our memories about music. Share your memories with us. Music photographers are the eyes of your ears. Have you ever experienced being in a fish bowl in the heart of Amsterdam on the edge of two canals. Windows all around you, and your heroes on the wall. We will share this miracle with you. We will tell you the story behind the rockphoto's, how we met the photographers and how we chose from their archives. We will tell you how we turned a few contactsheets of Bob Marley into an amazing big-format piece of art or how a picture of Keith Richards ended up with Keith's mother. The recipe is passion, passion and more passion. 20 years in the music industry was the start of this journey but since 2004 with love and passion this exceptional gallery developed to what it is today
Other things to note

My choice was spot on!! Being curious by nature I have booked this experience and what an experience!! So unique, unformal, cozy, relaxing in an amazing place, incredible location (btw the photo of the site does it do it justice).Rich of stories, anedoctes. Never seen such pictures before, like Stevie Wonder,or should I say Little Stevie not even at the age of 20. I truly went back in time. During these 2 hours we spoke about passion for music, photos and photographers. I shared with Michelle my passion for photography and it was a pleasure to share my experience. Please do not hesitate to also enjoy this incredible experience. From Hendrix to Amy Winehouse the vibration is there. Michelle is totally plugged to what she is doing.
