Leica Camera, in partnership with Miami Street Photography Festival, launches a series of exciting photographic events and partnerships at Art Basel Miami this December. Dubbed the winter playground of the global art world, the prestigious fair annually hosts over 50,000 international art enthusiasts who come to enjoy the exhibits, events, and programming against the vibrant backdrop of Miami.
During the six days of programming, in addition to a celebratory event and Leica Akademie, the final round of the multi-city X Vario City Challenge will crown a Miami winner who will advance to the national and final round of the competition. Workshops, lectures, portfolio reviews, studio shoots and more will be offered, with world-renowned Magnum photographers Alex Webb, Bruce Gilden, and Constantine Manos, along with poet and photographer Rebecca Norris Webb, National Geographic’s Maggie Steber and celebrity portrait and sport photographer Mark Mann.
To celebrate photography on a global platform, Leica and Miami Street Photography Festival will join a host of partners such as Leica Akademie, Leica Store Miami, ONA, Image Pro International, Art Media Studio, Hanhemuehle FineArt and Gramps Bar.
Trendy Studios in Miami’s bourgeoning Wynwood Art district will be the hub of Leica events and partnerships during Art Basel, December 3–8, 2013.
