The 7/2013 issue of Leica Fotografie International is now available in print at book stores, as well as on-line. The issue includes:
Talking With: Hamburg printer Papu Pramod Mondhe
Portfolio: Marked for life. Jan Grarup photographed his Danish compatriots on tour of duty in Afghanistan. Unwilling to forget their experiences there, many have recorded them permanently as tattoos.
Reportage: Angry, female, Turkish. Resistance to the felling of a few trees in Gezi Park evolved into the largest wave of protests in modern day Turkey – many women are at the front line.
Project: Dream beaches. Hyper-real imagery by Belgian sociologist and photographer Pascale Delfosse reveals the absurd side to recreational activities on the sand.
Leica World: Leica C. It has everything it needs to produce first class picture quality – and more: the Leica C is the perfect definition of a successful compact camera, and, what’s more, can link up to a smart phone.
Leica World: Vario-Elmar. Demanding the very highest performance: the best M lenses serve to inspire the development of the X Vario lens.
Reportage: Little left to lose. It is the poorest of the poor who are the hardest hit by the Greek crisis: female drug addicts sell their bodies for a few euros to finance their next fix.
Leica Classics: At close range. The legendary Robert Capa would have turned 100 years old this year. LFI looks back at his life, his iconic pictures and his influence on reportage photography.
