Leica Camera AG appeared at Photokina 2012 in Cologne with a unique exhibition concept in Hall 1. Leica presented works by internationally acclaimed photographers – and made art photography an unforgettable experience for visitors to the event. Hall 1 at the Koelnmesse exhibition centre was previously the home of the “Visual Gallery” at all past Photokina events.
The exhibitions included portfolios by Platon, Dominik Nahr, Thomas Dworzak, Moises Saman and images by Anthony Suau.
In addition, Leica premiered the exhibition “Personal Best for Leica” by Magnum photographer Elliot Erwitt as well as images by internationally renowned photographers such as Nobuyoshi Araki, Rankin, Andreas Gursky and Hubertus von Hohenlohe.
The exhibition was hosted by Karin Rehn-Kaufmann, proprietor of the Leica Galerie Salzburg, and Inas Fayed, Editor in Chief of Leica Fotografie International (LFI).
LFI, the magazine of Leica Camera AG, and Swiss Bolero magazine cooperated for this fashion photo series with Joachim Baldauf during Photokina, the world’s leading imaging fair.
