The world of Leica photography since 1949

LFI Magazine

Issue 1/2020

There are few able to combine travel and street photography as effectively as Steve McCurry. Now he had the chance to try out the Leica SL2 in China. See his photo series “Made in China” in the current issue. Also in the magazine: Gabriele Micalizzini’s black and white reportage “Malamilano”, Elen Pavolva’s portrait series of dancers from the Moscow Bolshoi Theatre and Marzio Emilio Villa’s cineastic picture series “La Marée de la Mémoire”.

This time we dedicate the category “Leica Classics” to the German photographer Barbara Klemm, who celebrates her 80th birthday on December 27, 2019.

In the technical segment you can learn more about the film functions of the new SL2, the new version 2.0 of the Leica Photos App and about the first drone from the cooperation between Leica and Yuneec.

To the current issue

My aim was to formulate a visual metaphor for our common future.
Robin Hinsch
