Über die Veranstaltung

For more than 14 years, the Leica Professional Department has been running workshops with professional photographers, for an audience of photography enthusiasts and amateurs, from all nations, from all peoples.

We organize meetings revealing the secrets of a book project, from its first idea to its realization, then its commercialization and global success. We are talking about a project in black and white or in colour, from its origin to its publication on paper in a book or in the press, television interviews or social media linked to it.

Frère Jean - "Les recettes du monastère" and "La prière du coeur"

Brother Jean is an Orthodox monk and priest. 40 years ago he was a photographer. One day, he is sent to report to Mount Athos, Greece and he experiences an epiphany. He will continue his apprenticeship in the Judean desert. In the heart of the Cévennes, he is currently in charge of a fortified farm which has become a hermitage, the skite Sainte-Foy. Together with his brothers, they have lived there for many years, they have restored the monastery, making every step open up space and wonder.

When a pilgrim comes to Skite Sainte Foy, he comes to immerse himself in silence, to rediscover his soul as a wondering child, to listen to nature speak to him of the moment, to taste a fruit on the tree, to chew an aromatic herb to extract its multiple flavors, to sit facing the infinity of the Long Valley, to take part peacefully in the offices.

I do not pretend to give advice, to write a new cookbook, there are already so many. I have the desire to show by simple recipes that in the monasteries the preparation of the meals the sharing of the dishes are a praise to God and to His creation.

Klaus Maria Einwanger - "Taxi Drivers"

Klaus Maria Einwanger is an award-winning photographer specializing in food, people and lifestyle. With over 30 years of global experience, his unique visuals and compelling stories have been featured in many books and exhibitions around the world.

Klaus Maria Einwanger captured critical moments of urban life just before the Covid-19 pandemic hit. His tribute to the taxi drivers is both personal and universal — and, as he points out, "written in their faces." In each city, Einwanger explores a very different microcosm.

Luc Debraine - "Les Garde-Temps"

Master of Arts University of Lausanne Journalist: L'Est Vaudois, Le Nouveau Quotidien, Le Temps, L'Hebdo, now freelance. Director of the Swiss Camera Museum (since 2018)

Timepieces are clocks that keep precious time: that of memory. They have been stopped short by natural or human disasters, from the Titanic to Hiroshima, from Buchenwald to the towers of the World Trade Center. They still display fateful moments. Some were stopped voluntarily to mark a revolution, a liberation, a singular event.

Pierre Belhassen - "Marseille Allogène"

For 15 years Pierre Belhassen have been practicing street photography, intuitive, where he plays with the shapes, colors and stories that life offers to his gaze. He tried to photograph in a light but deep way, using the illusion of reality to invent his universe.

His work has been published in M magazine, Courrier International, EPIC magazine, LFI... It was presented during the Voies Off Arles 2016, and exhibited at the Galerie Leica Marseille, among others...

He was the winner of the Miami street photography festival 2019 and among the winners of the LensCulture Street Photography Awards 2016.

Ten years already that his gaze rests on Marseille, his adopted city. He explored this luminous territory in his own way, seeking in the city and its colors what reveals its splendor to these eyes. "Being on a trip home, that's the feeling that inhabited me throughout the development of this project. Step by step, photo after photo, it is also what I finally see come to life through this book. Images of the street, images of life, as fragile as they are fleeting, like all these moments which, put end to end, make the salt of existence, I photographed the energies and this palette of colors which for me are Marseille. Through the 78 photographs in this book, I tell this city and my story with it."

Edouard Elias - Mediterraneum

Edouard Elias is a young photo-journalist prodigy. At 26, he has already cast his unique gaze on Syria, Ukraine, Burma and the Democratic Republic of Congo. In 2016, he spent three weeks on the ship Aquarius, chartered by the SOS Méditerranée association to help migrants in the Sicily Channel, photographing refugees to tell their hell and burn their stories forever.

An equally precocious and committed artist, Fanny Boucher founded Hélio’g at the age of 24, the only professional workshop in France specializing in photogravure. This photographic reproduction process, developed in 1879, is so rare that only ten workshops in the world still perpetuate this exceptional know-how.

Christian Habermeier - "The adidas Archive"

Christian Habermeier has been working as a photographer and designer since 1989. He studied communication design and taught photography and digital illustration from 2000 to 2006. In 2000 he founded studio waldeck photographers, and in 2013 he achieved his long-held vision of a CO2-neutral studio.

More than 100 years ago the brothers Adolf ("Adi") and Rudolf Dassler made their first pair of sports shoes. Hundreds of groundbreaking designs, epic moments, and star-studded collabs later, this book presents a visual review of the adidas shoe through almost 200 models.

Klaus Mellenthin - "MISEREOR"

A year ago I realized film and photography recordings for the NGO MISEREOR under corona conditions. This resulted in photographic reports, portrait series and some strong individual motifs.

But the main part of the work was a 14-minute documentary about the important role of women and how they are supported by the work of the NGO. There are 3 short versions, each accompanying a protagonist.

I was specifically booked as a photographer in order to transfer exactly my visual language and style from photography to moving images. That's why I worked with the same minimal team as in photography. And of course with the same cameras: SL2 and SL2-s. We only exchange the lenses because the SL lenses are too sharp and brilliant for us. The optics of the R lenses (Summicron 28 & 50 & 90) support our imagery better.
