Current highlights of the World of Leica
Andy Summers: A Certain Strangeness
From 28 July to 5 October, we are showing "A Certain Strangeness" at the Ernst Leitz Museum. A comprehensive exhibition of the work of the British musician and photographer Andy Summers.
Nomi Baumgartl - "From Passion to Vision"
She is considered one of Germany’s most renowned and multi-faceted photographers. The fragile interplay between people and nature is the primary focus of her current work: it is all about our obligation towards the future; and the impact that those living today will have on coming generations.
Science & Fiction
Just in time for the Leitz-Park Festival on 10 September, a new exhibition by photographer and video artist Jamal Ageli will open in Leitz-Park forest. On display are photographs from his project 'Polaris', in which he explores the physical and metaphysical dimensions of outer space and captures his findings in spectacular and truly extraterrestrial photographs.
