Eyes Wide Open. 100 Years of Leica

From October 24, 2014 through January 11, 2015 the exhibtion EYES WIDE OPEN! 100 YEARS OF LEICA PHOTOGRAPHY at the House of Photography in Hamburg will attempt for the first time to offer a comprehensive overview of the change in photography brought about by the invention and introduction of the Leica.

Some 400 photographs, supplemented by documentary material, including journals, magazines, books, advertisements, brochures, camera prototypes and films, will recount the history of small-format photography from its beginnings to the present day. Among the featured photographers are those who are internationally known for their work with Leica cameras as well as amateurs and artists who have not yet been widely associated with small-format photography.

Just in time to mark a milestone birthday of the legendary compact camera, and for the first time in this thematic breadth, this publication with about 1.200 images offers a wide artistic and cultural history of the Leica from the 1920s to the present day.
