Leica Camera shares a passion for and a love of creative photography of the highest standards with many people around the world – that’s why making such works and their creators accessible to people with this passion has always been important to Leica. For decades now, and for this precise reason, Leica has offered both prominent Leica photographers and emerging new talents an opportunity to present their work to a wider audience. The Leica galleries were conceived as the ideal forum for this purpose.

The tradition of the Leica Galleries goes back to the 1970s. The first Leica Gallery was founded in Wetzlar in 1976 and currently resides in the headquarters of Leica Camera AG. Further galleries were to follow, and today, Leica Galleries are found in many parts of the world, including Singapore. 

Leica Galerie Singapore

Located at the iconic Raffles Hotel, the Leica Galerie is the start of a beautiful photographic journey for many. The goal is to share the joy and love for photography through Leica exhibitions in Singapore, to audiences who have yet to experience the emotions of such work firsthand. The Leica Galerie will showcase over 6 photography exhibitions each year from local and international talents. The first exhibition was launched with 23 original black and white prints from the Leica Collection and included works from legendary photographers such as Thomas Hoepker, Henri Cartier-Bresson, René Burri, Sebastiao Salgado, Constantine Manos, Klavdij Sluban and Jane Evelyn Atwood.

About Alan Kwang

I have always loved street and portrait photography. My early interests in photography started with cellphone cameras during my frequent business travels for many years. Looking back, during those years of global travels, I have yearned to capture images of people and the lifestyle of different cultures in the places that I visited so much but never did because I wanted to travel “light”. I officially started delving into some serious photography only in 2018 and purchased my first mirrorless camera: I never looked back since.

I went on to appreciate street portraits genre in particular, now that camera comes with better resolutions, rendering and sharpness. I find it challenging to ask a stranger to pose for me in some countries; hence, I mainly shoot from the hip as much as possible and have been able to master it well enough to capture the little snippets of the daily lives of individuals or groups that I find interesting, expressive, unposed and complemented by the mood and their surroundings. The tough part is always to find ways to make them look at you as you snap away. I would describe myself as a “chill” photographer. I enjoy having coffee, wines, cigars and desserts and do my photography walk without having to prepare for a shoot or the need to do so. I like my photography sessions to be relaxed, fun and stressless as our daily lives are already stressful enough.

A Short Tale of Syria


7 Nov 2022 - 16 Apr 2023 | KC Eng and members of Red Photos

It is more than just about the opera, the performers and the props involved. It is the incorporeal embodiment of tradition that we must treasure today, fading as it will with time’s arrow. It is also an emblem of the altruistic spirit of dedicating oneself wholeheartedly to something without expecting much materially in return. This photo exhibition holds and passes on that shimmering trove to the audience, in hope that the persistence of its memory may yet still gleam farther down in the sands of time, before its final vanishment under a shroud of oblivion.

About KC Eng

Many years ago – after my national service - I decided to see the world through the camera lens. This bridge between science and art, brings both worlds to a common denominator in my search fora unified vision in time, space and structure. For now, I write stories in visual language where prose and poetry require no transcription. My trusty Leica facilitates the 'taking', whilst I do the 'giving', to transform and transcend ordinary reality, bringing subjective order into objective chaos. In a domain undictated by formula, I turn to myself with my conscience speaking, writing and singing in the language of light and time.
