Leica Store Gallery Washington DC announces a national open call for entries for their 2015 Juried Exhibition to all U.S. Leica photographers to capture the unforgettable.

  • The Deadline is 7pm EST Friday, Aug. 28.
  • This year’s theme is, “Unforgettable”


The photographic medium is privileged with the capability of freezing time. Displacing content and context to transcend a mere moment. Extending the life, influence, and impact of the decisive moment by preserving observations for successive generations.

For our 2015, third annual juried exhibition, we ask U.S. Leica photographers to fix their eyes and then lens upon scenes that should forever be suspended. It’s a search for significance with the intent to reveal fundamental universal truths. Allowing others the opportunity to glimpse scenes that expose the nature of reality. Moments that are truly worthy of being indelibly impressed upon the viewer’s memory.

The following video presents Leica – Revival of a legend | Made in Germany

A Leica is forever. That motto was the brand’s selling point – and very nearly its downfall. After failing to keep pace with the digital revolution, in 2004 the German company almost went bankrupt. Then investor Andreas Kaufmann stepped in, and brought Leica back from the brink. Since then, Leica has invested 80 million euros in research and development. And in 2009, Leica achieved profitability once again. Report by Joanna Gottschalk.
