PHOTOVILLE’S 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTNER

Leica Camera continues its commitment to Photoville as a 10th Anniversary partner to support a shared mission to make meaningful art and photography accessible to our communities.

This year, our long-time partners and collaborators are helping us make sure that all of our festival exhibitions and programs are free to attend and participate in.  Not only are they contributing to our overall festival, Leica Camera have been instrumental in the development and realization of the following projects:

Leica Mission:

Leica Camera, headquartered in Wetzlar, Germany with a second production site in Vila Nova de Famalicão, Portugal, is an internationally operating, premium-segment manufacturer of cameras and sport optics products. The legendary status of the Leica brand is founded on a long tradition of excellence in the supreme quality and performance of cameras and lenses, and the iconic images that artists and photojournalists everywhere captured with them.
