BIRDING WITHOUT BORDERS

Author and record-breaking birder Noah Strycker captured his birding experiences with a Leica V-Lux camera, and his photos are now on display at Leica Store Marina Bay Sands until 27 February 2019*.

About Noah Strycker: In 2015, Noah Strycker set himself a lofty goal: to become the first person to see half the world’s 10,000 bird species in one year. For 365 days, with a backpack, binoculars, and a series of one-way tickets, he traveled across 41 countries and all seven continents, eventually spotting 6,042 species—setting a new world record. Venturing deep into a world of chronic sleep deprivation, airline snafus, breakdowns, mudslides, floods, war zones, conservation triumphs, and ecological devastation, Noah found scores of birds and bird lovers everywhere he went. He shares his photos and stories daily with a worldwide audience on his Audubon Birding Without Borders blog. Noah’s images evoke the grace, beauty, diversity, and freedom of the birds that share our world.

A SENSE OF HOME by Magnum Photographer Nikos Economopoulos

Exhibiting for the first time in South East Asia, Nikos Economopoulos will be showing his early work in and around the place that he calls home. Ladden with a dramatic sense of history, as seen from the outside, Greece and the Balkan peninsula provide the volatile settings of his first visual trajectories. What he traces however, is life in the margins of society, of war, of history. Despite and against all that, he depicts a sense of everyday life, simple life, life as it goes on. He sees it from inside, and then he turns it outwards taking it along his own life-long photographic journey, and making it his own compass. The exhibition is held at Leica Galerie Singapore at the Fullerton Hotel until 29 May 2018*. Prints are on sale. Please call +65 6336 9555.

CITY OF LOVE by Elliott Erwitt

This festive season we present photographs by Elliott Erwitt, legendary photographer, longtime Magnum-member and master of the subtle art of wit. Erwitt found a permanent base in New York City but the passionate cosmopolite returns to the French capital, which was the scene of some of his first photographic ventures and home to Magnum Photos' founding office, on an almost regular basis – his Leica always at hand.

Erwitt's work is characterized by sharp, but always warm-hearted humor that stands out in the history of the medium. His pictures seem to constantly wink at us, they make us accomplices or point us to our vanities. It provides a human scale in Erwitt's political stories and adds a profoundness to his everyday observations which goes far beyond the captured moment.

Erwitt looks at Paris with the eyes of a flaneur. His Paris is the city of boulevards and cafés, of jardins and cabarets. He thus adds to the metropolis' myth, but thanks to his inimitable sense for the particularities of the everyday we feel like walking through the city for the very first time. The exhibition is held at Leica Galerie Singapore at the Fullerton Hotel until 31 January 2018*. Prints are on sale.

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.

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*.

BEYOND BOUNDARIES by Laxmi Kaul
