Daniel Arsham Leicas for Los Angeles Store

Exclusive La Vida Leica news! You may have heard the name Daniel Arsham before. He's a New York based artist who has been creating some very unique and interesting sculptures (including cameras) made of various stone materials. Turns out, he's even made a Leica camera or two (as is seen above). As you may also know, Leica Store Los Angeles sold their popular Fake Leica sculpture over the summer last year, in 2014 - leaving a large void where it once stood. This coming February 7, 2015 the void will be no more and filled with a glass showcase containing 25 life-sized Leica cameras, with five each of a different material by Arsham - including quartz, volcanic ash, and obsidian.
