The legendary camera manufacturer Leica is world-renowned for its long tradition, its global and award-winning photographers, and a reputation that is second to none. Whether in the field of reportage, portraiture, or documentary photography – Leica is more than just a brand; Leica is a way of life. Featuring singular insights into the lives of Germans, poetic and essayistic works going beyond classical notions of the image, opulent reportages far removed from common clichés – this special exhibition has been curated by Karin Rehn-Kaufmann exclusively for Berlin Photo Week. On display at Arena Berlin, it presents the work of three renowned photographers – Herlinde Koelbl, Donata Wenders, and Xiomara Bender – who view the world with very individual perspectives, placing it in their own aesthetic frames. The Leica exhibition includes a number of series by each photographer and is complemented by texts and videos. A talk with the artists will also take place during BPW.
