A picture is worth a thousand words and yet can take our breath away. When it shows endless joy. When it documents unimaginable suffering. When it brings us closer to untouchable legends. Or when it saves the blink of an eye for eternity. With their Leica, throughout 100 years, photographers have been capturing such moments. And we have been looking inward for a moment.

Seeing the moment
100 years of Leica, 100 years of history: The Hindenburg conquers the skies, the Russians conquer Berlin, and James Dean conquers the hearts of women. Always on the spot at such decisive moments were photographers who had an eye for the visual impact of the scene and a Leica in their hands. We present their photos to you in the exhibition ’100 years of Leica photography’ at the in-store gallery of the Leica Store Amsterdam. Various iconic images and explaining video content that are today renowned around the world can be viewed and listened to in our gallery.
