CBS Sponsors Vietnam War Exhibit

CBS will sponsor an upcoming exhibit about the Vietnam war at the Newseum in Washington to honor "60 Minutes" correspondent Bob Simon and his five decades of war reporting. "Reporting Vietnam" will open May 22, 2015 at the museum, recalling how journalists reported the war in the television era. The exhibit announced Thursday will feature Simon, Walter Cronkite and others. Curators say it will pose the question: "Did the press lose the war?" Simon was one of the last journalists to leave Vietnam following the fall of Saigon in 1973, reported on conflicts worldwide and died February 11, 2015 in a NYC car crash. His iconic photo seen above was shot with his Leica M2 camera in 1966.

Will McBride, Leica Shooter, Dies at 84

Will McBride rose to fame in the 1950s and ’60s as a documentary photographer, usually favoring a Leica. His work appeared regularly in various German magazines and included sex, nudity, drugs and politics so prevalent at the time. A native of St. Louis, Missouri (born in 1931), he grew up in Chicago. A private student of the legendary artist Norman Rockwell, he studied painting, art history and illustration at Syracuse University in New York and philology (the study of language in written historical sources) in Berlin. He was in the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1955, stationed in Würzburg, Germany - and would remain in Germany until his death... Yesterday he passed away in Berlin - a city he loved.

Films ran through my Leica like wine down my throat.

Exposure: Alain Laboile

We haven't had an Exposure post in a while! So without further ado... Born on May 1, 1968 in Bordeaux, France, Alain Laboile is a photographer and father of six. In 2004, as he needed to put together a portfolio of his work as a sculptor, he acquired a camera, and thus developed a taste for macro photography, spurred by his passion for entomology. Later on, he pointed his lens towards his growing family which became his major subject : a life on the edge of the world, where intemporality and the universality of childhood meet. He just received a custom Leica M Monochrom, and is currently working on a book of Leica M Monochrom images and coordinating exhibition. Catch up with Alain on his website, on Facebook or LensCulture.
