CAPTURING THE BEAUTY OF THE EARTH, HUMANS AND NATURE WITH THE LEICA S AND LEICA SL by Oliver Vogler

The interaction with light and technology was what Oliver Vogler has always attracted to photography. In the Fotostudio or even at the most beautiful hours of the day, at the most beautiful spots on earth. Always to get the best results of the available light situation and the equipment, still appeals to him today. Always at the limit of the photographic possibilities and to exceed these limits, as well as the immensely high demands on the imaging line of Leica lenses, these are exactly the reasons to use the Leica Professional System. Oliver Vogler would like to introduce the interaction with people, nature and technology in his exhibition, scheduled to run in Leica Galerie Singapore at the Fullerton Hotel from 29 September 2017 till 8 November 2017*.

A PERSONAL VISION by Fulvio Bugani

Fulvio Bugani has never doubted that Cuba has a lot more to offer than what you see in travel brochures or hear on the news: he has already been working on his project to capture the soul of Cuba in photographs for five years. Looking for more than just the superficial image, Bugani first travelled to the Caribbean island in 2003: he was immediately captivated by the country, its wildlife, its cities and, above all, its people. He made Havana his second home and hung out with the locals. With the aim of capturing their diversity, Bugani created a colourful series of complex pictures with a strong alternation and interaction of bright light and deep shadows. Some of his protagonists are accompanied by their shadows, so that they step onto Bugani’s stage twice, while others are just represented with a portrait. His compositions always show the interplay of various levels of light and shadow, and, with the strong colours of the house walls, create a multi-layered overall image – as diverse as Cuban society itself.

Fulvio Bugani is the international Leica M10 Ambassador. The exhibition 'A Personal Vision' is scheduled to run in Leica Galerie Singapore at the Fullerton Hotel from 18 August 2017 till 6 September 2017*.

MEMORIES OF ISTANBUL by Ara Güler

Ara Güler, born 1928 in Istanbul, is arguably Turkey's most eminent photographer having captured the everyday life of the city's inhabitants for over 60 years. His work has been featured across international titles - Time, Life, Stern and Paris Match to name a few. Despite years of being on the road and photographing famous luminaries, Güler's heart remains rooted in Istanbul. He bears witness to its many changes, and continues to find inspiration photographing the city with his Leica camera. A testament to the responsibility he carries as a photojournalist, Güler once said, "photography is not an art, it is more important than art".

Ara Güler is the recipient of the Leica Hall of Fame Award 2016. The exhibition 'Memories of Istanbul' is scheduled to run in Leica Galerie Singapore at the Fullerton Hotel from 24 June 2017 till 31 July 2017*.

BEYOND BOUNDARIES by Laxmi Kaul

Beyond Boundaries presents Laxmi Kaul and her journey with the people and nomads of Kashmir, where life is about simplicity, serenity and sincerity. What goes on around the borders? Sometimes life is about the unplanned moments, the appreciation of nature and how civilisations interact.

Laxmi shares, “I have been lucky to capture some beautiful moments and experience several real stories. I will continually follow up on these stories as I feel a strong connect with the place and people. They keep pulling me back for more.”

Laxmi Kaul connects with spirituality in daily life and travels with a patriotic zeal. She believes the camera is her tool and photography is an extension of her very being.

Laxmi's gallery is on display from 28 October 2016 to 7 December 2016.

VISIONS. A passage of cultural diversity, by Justin Ong

Justin Ong is an intrepid; a geographical traveller who enjoys navigating new lands with a foldable map in hand. Born in safe Singapore, the Leica SL Ambassador has, among other things, been an Asian Geographic Photojournalist, The Philippine Star Correspondent and the International Peace Foundation Photographer.

VISIONS is a quick glance into Justin’s new found relationship with Leica Camera, in which his vision is represented in various perspective and ways. Believing that a camera can alter the way we interact with the world, his documentation from the isolated North Korea to the mountains of Indonesia presents a work of rediscovery.

Justin's gallery is on display from 9 September 2016 to 26 October 2016.
