On the occasion of the opening of the Leica studio in Wetzlar, the two tradition-rich German companies Leica and Hahnemühle sealed another cooperation deal. In all its work shops, the academy will use exclusive fine-art photo papers by Hahnemühle for long-lasting high-quality prints. The Leica Academy studio in Wetzlar was opened on 06th December, 2014. The first 500 visitors were offered the chance of being shot with a Leica S in front of a Christmas scenery. From the shoot through the post processing to the digital ink-jet print on Hahnemühle FineArt Pearl – the visitors were demonstrated the entire high-level work flow.
The Leica Academy annually holds some 250 workshops worldwide, allowing the participants to experience the fascination of photography, with experts providing them with profound knowledge at the same time. Hahnemühle is the proud partner of the Leica Academy to demonstrate – in addition to the quality of the Leica cameras – the visual and haptic effects of fascinating archival pigment prints.
Hahnemühle already cooperated with Leica on the occasion of the exhibition ’10 x 10 – 100 Years of Leica Photography’ held during the new Leitz Park opening in Wetzlar and at the 2014 Photokina. The Leica gallery in hall 1 featured – inter alia – the pictures of artists such as Thomas Hoepker, Anton Corbijn or Letanguerrant printed on Hahnemühle FineArt paper.
