The world of Leica photography since 1949

LFI Magazine

Issue 3/2021

In this issue, you will find a homage to Magnum photographer Bruno Barbey, who would have turned 80 this year. Also in the issue: Alessandro Cinque’s long-term reportage on Peruvian mining regions, Joseph Michael Lopez’s forays into the streets of New York and a very unique kind of street photography by Siegfried Hansen. Last but not least, Nina Röder’s refreshing and grotesquely absurd tableaus with props taken from the belongings left behind by her grandparents.

In the technical section you will learn more about Leica’s new lenses Apo-Summicron-M 35 f/2 Asph and Apo-Summicron-SL 28 f/2 Asph as well as the Leica SL2-S in practice.

To the current issue

I believe there is an unwritten agreement between subjects and photographer. The subjects always provide what they have, their image and their story. The photographer must feel the importance of this responsibility and trust and make sure that these people's stories are heard and seen by as many people as possible.
Alessandro Cinque

The ‘Peru: A Toxic State’ project is a large-scale photographic journey of four years covering eight thousand kilometres and six mining communities. Photographed along the Corredor Minero in Peru, this project shows the social, health and environmental consequences for the indigenous people living near the mines.
