German news broadcaster Deutsche Welle created this short feature on the history of Leica in light of the 100th year anniversary of the brand’s existence. Oskar Barnack created his first functional Leica model back in 1914, and its compact size sparked a revolution in photography.
The video also offers a glimpse into the exhibition in Hamburg titled, “Eyes Wide Open: 100 years of Leica photography” that features 500 works created with Leica gear.
