The Word turns five: The pictures (Part 2)

With a slightly softer and at times even more suggestive manner, Belgian photographer Lara Gasparatto captures the good people and their good vibrations of last Friday’s birthday party.

Check out Grégoire Pleynet’s first batch of party pics below.

An extra special thank you goes out to the following people for their love and support before, during and after the party: Sarah (for charging through the packed dance floor with crates of dirty long drinks to clean), Pauline (for the post-party floor-scrubbing), Raya (for manning the archives), Charline (for being the straight-faced guardian of the entrance), Theophile and Valentin (for their splendid archive shelf and photo-book booth), Vincent and Camille (for the truly lovely little oasis they created and their origami-ed Words), Pieterjan Ginckels (for lending us his HUMAN DISCO BONG), BShirt (for the collaborative staff sweaters), Yassin (for playing delivery man all of Friday and Monday), Grégoire and Lara (for snapping up the night’s vibe), our four barmen and barmaids (for staying cool-headed), the bands and DJs (Mountain Bike rocked the place the fuck out and Onda Sonora got the dance floor going wild) and, last but not least, Vedett and Stolichnaya Vodka (for keeping the bar afloat).
