Featured in the Leica Master Shots Collection on LFI

Hooray! My picture has been favourited by the editors of the Leica Fotografie International and ranked among the very best photographs in the Leica Master Shots collection! So proud about it!

About the picture

This picture is part of a reportage I took at the local camel market in Al Ain, in the Emirates.
The complete series is here:

Camel market – Al Ain

To take this candid portrait I used my LEICA SL camera paired with the VARIO Elmarit SL 24-90mm f2.8, a great combo for these kinds of situation.

I’m so happy about it, as it is also one of my favourite shots I’ve taken recently.

 

Thanks,

Sab

Grande novitĂ : sono stato invitato all’evento speciale Leica di Gennaio 2017!

Oggi ho ricevuto una email che mi ha fatto felice come un bambino e che non immaginavo potesse mai accadere. Un regalone di Natale anticipato e molto gradito.
Sono stato invitato all’evento speciale Leica, al Leitz Park di Wetzlar, “Celebration of Photography”, una serata dove molto probabilmente verrĂ  presentata la nuova Leica M (10?) e dove ci sarĂ  anche la premiazione e l’incontro con il grande fotografo Joel Meyerovitz.

Ecco l’invito e la conferma della mia registrazione all’evento

“Dear Mr Parente,
Dear friends of photography and the Leica brand,

As you know, we have been concentrating on “Das Wesentliche” for more than 100 years. Concentrating on what makes our hearts beat faster: Photography. The art of photography. The perfect picture.

We would, therefore, like to invite you to our “Celebration of Photography” in the Leitz Park on the evening of January 18, 2017, where you can join us in welcoming the seventh photographer to be honoured with the “Leica Hall of Fame Award”:

Joel Meyerowitz

This award expresses our profound appreciation of his lifework. By the way, the award winner will be discussing his life and work in the morning on January 19, 2017.

Enjoy a special evening with us at our “Celebration of Photography” – together with friends of Leica, photographers, artists, journalists, and prominent and international guests – in other words, with all those who, just like you, are friends of the Leica brand.
Under the motto “Inspiration sehen”, you will also have the chance to experience the latest milestone of Leica photography.”


Una notte da bollino rosso, per sognare ad occhi aperti.

Che meraviglia, un sogno ad occhi aperti. Sarà una immersione totale nel mondo Leica e in quello della Fotografia, vissuta con gli occhi di chi è ancora piccolo e sconosciuto ma con una passione e una voglia da primo della classe.

Ovviamente vi raccontero tutto di questa due giorni, le novitĂ  dal mondo Leica, le mie impressioni e i miei incontri, quindi, segnatevi la data, 18 e 19 Gennaio 2017.

Buona giornata,
Sabino
