Two years after the first ground was broken, the company is celebrating the completion of the Leitz-Park complex in Wetzlar. Visitors are invited to visit the Leitz-Park complex from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday 17 June 2018 – and can look forward to discovering a unique location combining spectacular architecture with groundbreaking technological developments and cultural highlights.
Alongside exhibitions of the exceptional work of photographers Ray Barbee, Tine Acke, Matthieu Biton and Michael Agel, the acclaimed anniversary exhibition ‘Eyes wide open! 100 years of Leica photography’ is also making a guest appearance at the opening of the Leitz-Park. The Leica Gallery will also be presenting photography by Bruce Davidson, who will be honoured with this year’s Leica Hall of Fame Award as a tribute to his lifework and his invaluable contribution to photography.
The programme will also include talks and presentations by experienced photographers and speakers. The ‘Nature Lounge’ will be presenting Leica Sport Optics and inviting guests to explore the newly created ‘Nature Trail’ in the neighbouring Leitz Park Wood. The World of Leica will also be open on Sunday and offers visitors insights into numerous fascinating aspects.
