Leica’s contributions to the evolution of photography have been inventions of inspiration beginning with the creation of the first still 35mm camera, which aligned the scientific mind and meticulous eye of two precision craftsmen. The photographic technician and photographer’s attention to detail over the last century have created both the modern hand-made photographic instruments we use today, which seize fractions of instants from our surrounding world rendering them as the photographer’s frozen visuals that inspire us all to take a closer look. This November, come take a closer look at a collected visual history that truly is man/hand-made.
