On April 16th forty five Leica photographers came together for a simultaneous one day shoot in the Soho districts of London and New York. The idea was the brainchild of The Leica Meet, a successful Facebook and website group with 3,000+ members.
The UK event was managed by Gavin, Stephen and Olaf the founders of the Leica Meet and kindly supported by David Bell of Leica Mayfair. The US event was run by Eileen McCarney Muldoon, key member of the Meet management team and generously supported by Chris Durkin of the Leica Store, Soho, NYC.
Those shooting in New York were pleasantly surprised to see Ralph Gibson and Mary Ellen Mark turn up for wine and cheese in the evening. Overall, the participants left with one burning question. ‘When is the next one?’.
