Once upon a time, in Amsterdam, there was a Film Museum in the Vondelpark. Born as a movie theater, it also held lectures, exhibitions and debates around the movie art. I’ve been there a few times before the entire museum was moved to a flashy new building in 2012. If you’re curios, one article celebrates the old film museum in lomgraphy. Here we’ll talk about the new one.
Some time ago I published a few takes on some of Vondelpark’s colors, green, yellow and red. I couldn’t foresee that another color would have sprung up, but here it is: the entire Vondelpark has shifted to a deep, electric blue.
As the winter approaches, let’s remember those warm summer days. When green is the only color you can see around you.
Yellow is a rare color in urban landscapes. Its only hopes are shop signs, ad posters, fancy clothes or original bikes. Autumn is the only season that concedes Yellow a moment of glory, letting it invade every tree-lined street and, above all, the city parks.
