In this exhibition that brings together, for the first time at Leica Gallery Porto, the vision of five authors united by their passion and loyalty to the brand, we show five different ways of seeing the world.

The importance of this show is based on that which is the largest of its paradoxes: far from the exaggerated clichés, here at Leica Gallery the camera (and the technology) retracts to the background to leave the stage for the vision of the photographers.

In its core, the camera is just a tool that has the magical ability to capture light. In an era marked by constant technological advances, the impact of the photographic image continues to depend on light, context and composition.

The pleasure of the photographic act – only possible when the camera becomes an extension of our look and vehicle of our intentions – and the focus on image quality, structuring pillars of the Leica philosophy, are evident in these five series and ways of feeling photography.
