LEICA GALERIE

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.

REMEMBERING THE FORGOTTEN

CLUBE DE LUTA

30 May - 31 Aug 2022 | Nicholas Damien Goh

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art of Japanese origin that was taught to the Gracie family by Mitsuyo Maeda. Over the decades, the Gracie family further developed and refined the art of Jiu-Jitsu, which would form the foundation of modern Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that is practised all over the world today. ‘Jū’ in Japanese means ‘gentleness’, and ‘jutsu’ means ‘art’, hence Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is also commonly known as ‘the gentle art’, as one can spar with multiple opponents without taking a toll or injury on their bodies. Leica Guild Member, Nicholas takes you on a grit-filled journey to immerse yourselves in the gentle art, through his images.
