About the collaboration between Leica Camera AG and Magnum Photos:
In February 2011, Leica Camera AG and Magnum Photos signed a technological and photographic partnership agreement founded on the common history of these two world-famous photographic institutions that goes back almost one hundred years. New chapters in this story of long-standing dedication to the field of independent documentary photography will be written in a number of joint projects under the motto of ‘Past. Present. Future.’
Against this common background, a number of independently produced multimedia essays by Magnum photographers began production in Spring 2011 and will be presented online at www.leica-camera.com, www.lfi-online.de and www.magnumphotos.com. Additionally, the partnership provides an opportunity to gain knowledge and insight from the experience of Magnum photographers working in the field with the latest Leica equipment. The field reports from Magnum photographers will make a significant contribution to the comprehensive user requirements analyses already performed by Leica, assisting in the mutual aim of developing the Leica product portfolio to ensure that products continue to meet the needs of photographers around the world.
