#recreatedclassic Finalists Win X Cameras

Instagram recently challenged users to show off their artistic side, asking them to remake iconic photos and post their interpretations with the hashtag #recreatedclassic. It's somewhat similar, in spirit, to the Leica "100" video that went viral last year. The competition culminated at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity where more than 500 entries were displayed - and three winners were named at a pop-up gallery at the Hotel Majestic Barrièrre. The #recreatedclassic contest was sponsored by Leica Camera and the winners got limited-edition X cameras. Read more below for the winners and photos!

Exposure: Jo Fischer

It's been a while since we had an Exposure post! We came across a gentleman from Berlin, Germany called Jo Fischer actually by way of this rather well put together video called Leica • Psycho (seen below) and had to share it. It's got a great style and catchy soundtrack. Well done! You may have seen his work and an interview in LFI or come across his photobook, "Wheels & Waves. You can check out the images seen in the video over here and more on his website and also catch up with him on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Read more below!

Kravitz Headed to Wetzlar for "Flash"

A brief note that Lenny Kravitz is headed to Leica Gallery Wetzlar to promote his Flash book and exhibition. He's expected to make an appearance at 5:30pm local time next Tuesday, June 23, 2015. There will probably be a Leica M-P "Correspondent" Set on display, possibly for sale at the Leica Store Wetzlar if there are any left of the 125 produced. Even at 22,500€ ($24,500 USD) each, they were moving quickly. Read more below for details.

Leica Fotopark Goes Social

Just a quick note to let everyone know that the Leica Fotopark cloud service received two nice updates today, one of which has been promised since it was launched last September (or at least, went active two months later in November)... The opportunity to post comments on individual photos and message other photographers. The other part of this new feature is notifications which basically lets you know what's going on; photo likes and favorites, comments or messages. This is a step in making Leica-Fotopark a social network in its own right, competing with the likes of Flickr, 500px, etc. Read more below for details!
