Alberto Venzago – Picture Maker

Leica M Over a span of five decades Alberto Venzago has explored all photographic formats from documentary to freestyle staging. He has long been considered among the most renowned Swiss photographers. That said, he spent most of the time travelling the world and only returned to live in Zurich a couple of years ago. We are presenting a selection from his rich body of work.

Erika Astrid – Wild at Heart

Leica S The multi-talented photographer works intuitively and at a high pace. In New York City and Los Angeles, she gives free rein to her ideas, capturing them with the Leica S, 3 lenses and the help of a creative taskforce.

Stefano Schirato – Burning Land

Leica Q Jharia is in the true sense of the word, an incendiary region. It is also home to hundreds of thousands of people, whose lives and livelihoods are dependent on the coal deposits there. With haunting images, Stefano Schirato documents the horrific consequences of intensive resource extraction in the mining region of eastern India.

Leica Q2 Monochrom

The Leica Q2 Monochrom is doubtlessly a niche product, albeit a very appealing one. We explore why the camera's primary restriction also happens to be its greatest strength.

Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 Asph

The compact Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 Asph opens the SL system up to newcomers – and delivers a high-end performance in a vast range of applications.

Aleksey Myakishev – Russian North

Leica M Aleksey Myakishev considers photography a wonderful tool with which to understand something about human character. Using a Leica, he captures for eternity unrepeatable moments from his journeys to northern Russian villages.

Frank Horvat – Side Walk

Leica M He saw the world through the eyes of a traveller, and frequently roamed New York's bustling streets. Frank Horvat passed away in 2020, aged 92. The very last photo book he compiled is a treasure trove of visual discoveries.
