The world of Leica photography since 1949

LFI Magazine

Issue 4/2020

The new issue of LFI includes a Lockdown Special featuring the best pictures of our #fromhome challenge. In the Portfolio section, we present Kiên Hoàng Lê’s social-documentary study of his neighbourhood in Berlin. Polish photographer Tytus Grodzicki returned to Algeria to capture the country where he spent some of his youth in striking monochrome images. Felipe Romero Beltrán shares his elegiac series about life along Colombia’s Río Magdalena – also known as the ‘river of death’. The Leica Classics section celebrates Toni Schneiders, one of the most renowned German photographers of the post-war era. 

In the technical segment we introduce some of the highlights available at the upcoming Leitz Photographica Auction, and launch our series on fine art printing materials with an overview of baryta paper.

As an exception, this issue is only available in digital version and can be downloaded from the LFI App.

To the current issue

Looking closely at this picture, I realized that if I loved it, it was because here was a scene that was a little out of time – even ‘counter-time’.
Gaël Turine

Forty years after the Islamic Revolution, Gaël Turine spent three weeks travelling across Iran on assignment for the Arte TV station. Covered by a tourist visa, his road trip took him along paths through a divided society – from Kurdistan in the north to the Persian Gulf in the south.
