For the first three weeks of September 2011, Galeries Lafayette in Paris will be hosting an exhibition of photographs featuring Salvador Dalí and his beloved wife Gala. Read on to find out why.
It was love at first sight for Salvador Dalí when he first met Helene Dimitrievna Diakonava or Gala in the summer of 1929. Although she was already married, that only proved a very minor inconvenient. She quickly abandoned her former husband in order to spend the rest of her life with the Surrealist artist.
During the late 1960s, Dalí created an eight character alphabet consisting of the letters G for Gala, D for Dalí, and S for Salvador. He called this alphabet Daligramme. Ten years later, French fashion label Lancel would pay homage to the Daligramme by emblazoning it on a leather handbag with a bike chain handle.
Today, Lancel is launching a new Daligramme Collection of handbags and to commemorate this occasion, in conjunction with the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí, it is hosting a three-week long exhibition at the Galeries Lafayette in Paris.The show features a number of never-before-exhibited photographs of Dalí and Gala together.

Lomography Singapore plays host to Parallel Planets’ first exhibition, "Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition," featuring all-analog photography: a sea of black and white film portraits. This exhibition serves as a platform where both local and international photographers can express themselves by injecting individual perspectives into their craft. It also encourages viewers to look through the lens of the photographers, to see the subjects as who they are – flawed, alive, and breathing – and to also see beyond the façades we all choose to don.
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the second part of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
