Find out about our latest collaboration with colette, the world-famous Paris based boutique.
Inspired by the feminine name of our beloved Diana camera and the eclectic perspectives that can be seen through her lens, Lomography and notorious Paris-based boutique colette have teamed up for a very unique project!
The Dianalogues No. 1: “Through a Woman’s Lens” book presents a collection of funny, crazy, inspiring, and highly personal female perspectives expressed through Diana photos and text. Joining the roster of esteemed female participants specially picked by colette are various Lomographers from all over the world. Our call-out for entries last September was met with an overwhelming number of submissions, so much so it was hard to pick just 18 winners out of the bunch!
To celebrate various creative female perspectives, this project is being launched in time for International Women’s Day 2009.

You’ll be dotty about this limited edition Diana F+ package! Each pack contains our treasured Diana F+ camera covered in colette’s trademark blue spots.
