EYES WIDE OPEN! - 100 years of Leica photography

Eyes wide open! 100 years of Leica photography - that is the name of the anniversary exhibition celebrating 100 years of Leica photography that will be on view in the Fotografie Forum Frankfurt from 13 March to 31 May 2015. The anniversary exhibition is dedicated to the radical changes and visual revolution in the world of photography that were triggered by the appearance of the technically innovative, compact, light and extremely mobile ‘Leica’ (‘Leitz Camera’). The exhibition spotlights various aspects of 35 mm photography from its beginnings to the present day – from journalistic strategies and documentary approaches to examples of freestyle artistic imagery. The exhibition will be showing more than 200 photographs together with documentary material, camera models and publications from the company archives at Leica.

The Fotografie Forum Frankfurt will be presenting works by prominent Leica photographers like Nobuyoshi Araki, Jane Evelyn Atwood, Bruno Barbey, René Burri, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, Michel Vanden Eeckhoudt, William Eggleston, Ralph Gibson, F. C. Gundlach, Elisabeth Hase, Fred Herzog, Barbara Klemm, Herbert List, Paula Luttringer, Susan Meiselas, Ulrich Mack, Joel Meyerowitz, Paolo Roversi, Jeanloup Sieff, Christer Strömholm, Kai Wiedenhöfer, Paul Wolff and Tom Wood.
