Shutters Wide Open: Leica Celebrates its 100 Years

The legendary Leica, originally intended for landscape photography use, is now celebrating exactly one century after its invention in 1914, having organized a major exhibition at the House of Photography at the Deichtorhallen Museum in Hamburg.

Curated by Hans-Michael Koetzle, the exhibition EYES WIDE OPEN: 100 YEARS OF LEICA PHOTOGRAPHY attempts – for the first time – to offer a comprehensive overview of the change in photography brought about by the invention and introduction of the infamous Leica.

Approximately 400 photographs, supplemented by documentary material, recount the history of small-format photography from its beginnings to the present day, 

Take a look to some of the amazing photos and let yourself be mesmerized!
