When the photographer visited Thailand for the first time in 2017, he was impressed by the relaxed good humour and the hustle and bustle on the streets. Since then, the country is one of his favourite places for taking photographs.
Visual poetry between light and shadow
Our latest community contribution focuses on the visual interplay between light and shadow.
Mingzu Liu: A Selection
Disorder, colour, wonder and moods: the photographer finds all these things on the street and combines them with his own emotions to create his images.
Marion Péhée: Iron Lifeline
The photographer was in Ethiopia, travelling along an important transport route between Dire Dawa and Dewélé.
Burkhard Riegels: The Leaf
Three elements make this picture so special: a giant rhubarb leaf (Gunnera manicata), that is considered a weed in southern Ireland; the wind; and the wide bay of the Ring of Kerry in the south-west of Ireland.

In the heart of Sardinia, the Mallorcan photographer was able to try out the new Leica Q3. In this interview he tells us about the experience.
The diversity of SL cameras
Leica recently introduced a new colour variation of the SL2: silver anodised. We reported in depth on this novelty in LFI 05/2023, and explained why, for some photo enthusiasts, the new one is more than just another SL2 in a classic guise. We decided to pick up on this point and take a look at the diversity of current SL models.
