The following video presents Leica & Magnum: Constantine Manos – Personal Documentary from Leica Camera on Vimeo.
Constantine Manos was born in 1934 in South Carolina to Greek immigrant parents. He went on to attend the University of South Carolina, from which he graduated in 1955. Joining Magnum Photos in 1963, he then became a full Member in 1965. This video, produced in partnership with Magnum, is a personal documentary of Manos’ wide-ranging subjects – from desegregation in the American South to life in Greece and his later work throughout America which he shot in color. One thing has remained constant throughout his career, it’s been Costa and his Leica rangefinder.

Leica Store Miami invites you to join them next Wednesday, December 2nd at 7:30 PM for a gallery opening and reception celebrating Magnum Photos photographer Constantine Manos.
“The flow of people in a setting, their changing relationships to each other and their environment, and their constantly changing expressions and movements – all combine to create dynamic situations that provide the photographer with limitless choices of when to push the button. By choosing a precise intersection between subject and time, he may transform the ordinary into the extraordinary and the real into the surreal.”
The highlights of the event include:
- Manos will be on hand to talk about his exhibition, Looking Back, and share some of the stories behind his images.
- The exhibition will be on display in the Leica Store Miami gallery through February 2016.
- Open edition prints will be available for purchase.
- This event is sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery. Participants will be able to sample some of their craft beers throughout the evening.
