colette vs Lomography: The Dianalogues

This week is Fashion Week in Paris. As the city of Looooove plunges into its normal panic mode during this time of the year, Lomography has opened up a petite boutique at our good friends’, colette. The reason for this most splendid invite is the launch of the colette clone of the Diana F+ camera and the Dianalogues 1 Book “Through a Woman’s Lense”. This blog offers you a first glimpse at the juicy fruits of this worldwide artists collaboration: The Dianalogues Exhibition. Not only is this the first chance to see and behold the best images from the book taken by creative Mademoiselles from all over the planet. You can also – and probably for the only time ever – see all the colette clone cameras. Every participating artist received one Signature Diana F+ as a “Thank You” for their participation. It is also the first and exclusive chance to touch and look, and even purchase the fizzy, polka dotted colette camera and the book.
Lomography also proudly presents a handpicked selection of courious vintage Diana clones, and a grand choice of some of the more hard to come by Diana Special Editions.

Gallery Episode 1: Witness the fitness of our lomographic task force installing this exhibition in record time!
A big thank you goes out to the dedicated Lomography Paris Shop assistants Julie and Marc, and the architecture allrounders Caroline, Sylvia and JP that engaged in the challenge to set this all up in only 10 hours. A big thank you also to the crew of colette, Paris’ finest.

More updates to follow. Make sure to click back on Lomography.com with your mouse device, soon.

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    The New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Lens at the  Lunar New Year Parade

    Since Lomography launched its new Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens project on Kickstarter, we've been seeing a variety of pictures, from images of snow monkeys in Japan to behind-the-scenes shots of New York Fashion Week. Many of these pictures were shot with digital cameras, but we've yet to see how the Petzval 58 performs on an analog Canon Rebel camera loaded with black and white, and x-pro film. Join us on a trip through the heart of New York's Chinatown during the Lunar New Year Parade.
