"LEICA MYSELF" is a collection of self-portraits by Leica fans around the globe. Self-portraits are a rather unique photographic phenomenon: making yourself immortal with a camera in the hand. Old or young, big or small, rich or poor – all are, in fact, the same in front of the mirror. But some are even more the same, meaning those who own a Leica. Which model they own is irrelevant.
Since the brand came onto the market over 100 years ago and revolutionized photography, a portrait with a Leica in the hand has become something of a cult, binding together a whole community of committed fans. This book pays homage to the cult of personality, with over 250 self-portraits from around the world. Whimsical, wicked, narcissistic, crazy, iconic, but always passionate. Leica Myself – immortalizing the Leica Ego.
Edited by Till Schaffarczyk (Design) and Rainer Schillings (Text).
