A while ago, I visited Groningen with my mom. It's quite the commute by train, but it was definitely worth it. Our destination was the Groninger Museum. The reason we went was the David LaChapelle exhibition. David LaChapelle is a photographer, and music video and film director. He has done commercial work for magazines like Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and Vogue. His work has been described as 'surreal pop kitsch'. And you may have seen some of his music videos for Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, No Doubt and Amy Winehouse. My favourite video is Take me to Church by Hozier.
The staircase inside the museum
The inside of the museum is filled with gorgeous works of art, but the outside of the museum is spectacular too!
We took a stroll around the city and spotted some cool streetart and doors!
Not the bestest of photos but the ceilings of the trainstation are gorgeous!
Groningen is a pretty town and that museum is amazing. Are those mosaic tiles on the staircase walls?ReplyDelete
This exhibit looks amazing! I can see why it is called surreal pop kitsch. That staircase looks like it would make me dizzy but it is awesome!ReplyDelete
What a great town! The museum looks fabulous but the town itself looks pretty cool.ReplyDelete
