Lumas Gallery Brussels

” To collect photographs is to collect the world.” – Susan Sontag

As you probably know I’ve attended tonight an exclusive opening at the first Lumas gallery in Belgium. Now probably you wonder why I would choose such a subject for my usual fashion related posts. Well, the thing is that I truly believe that fashion is, in fact, art, that the very base of fashion is art and so, fashion designers are also creators of art. That and the fact that I’ve recently joined some photography courses encouraged me to join this “little soirée” where I can learn more of this particular art.

The official opening of the gallery will be held on the 18th of January, so I believe that all those who love photography and search for good, accessible prices, will have to attend. 🙂

The place became crowded within minutes after my arrival and I was pleasantly surprised to see so many people interested in what the gallery has to offer. Well, frankly I couldn’t blame them cause even though I don’t understand art from a professional level, I loved most of the pieces and I wouldn’t mind seeing them in my home. 🙂

Here are some of my personal favorites:

Plus that they had some photographs of my favorite “vintage” (to say so) style icons like Marylin Monroe, Audrey Hepburn or Sophia Loren, which as I said before, brings us closer to the fashionable part of the article. 🙂

One other thing I liked so much about the gallery is that it has a “home” concept, meaning that every room of the place represents an actual room of the house, like the living room, the kitchen, etc. So it gives you more or less an idea of how your chosen photograph would look chez toi ( at your place). I found this very interesting and it really gives you a cozy felling when you visit the gallery, unlike the cold non-personal impression a museum transmits.
