Leica

// oil painting

Being an artist it is impossible not to have a great appreciation for photography as an art form. The role Leica cameras in the history of photography is undeniable. Some of my favorite photographers wielded a Leica throughout their careers; W. Eugene Smith, Gary Winogrand, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Man Ray, just to name a few. Which is why I first illustrated the classic M6, then painted it as precisely as possible.
