ON THE WALL (OTW) is a photographic flea market about ANYTHING pertaining to PHOTOGRAPHY!

On top of that, this quarterly community gathering is also accompanied by insightful dialogue sessions and workshops touching on various topics of photography! Plus great art market experience with free flow of coffee & tea*!
