In more than five decades, photographer and filmmaker Alberto Venzago has captured various themes. From 10 March to 14 May, around 150 motifs in the Ernst Leitz Museum provide an insight into the most important stages of his life's work: from the voodoo cult and the yakuza to celebrity portraits and a selection of film material.
Lena Stahl: My Son – Behind the Scenes of a Roadmovie
German director Lena Stahl is a multi-talent: she not only wrote the screenplay and directed her feature film My Son but also documented the production with a Leica M10. We will be presenting a good 40 of these shots at the Leica Galerie Wetzlar from 31 March to 14 June.
