100 Years of Leica Photography. The WestLicht exhibition EYES WIDE OPEN! (AUGEN AUF!) tells the history of a revolution from the very beginnings to the present day. The invention of the Leica was the dawn of a new era in photography, the view on the world radically changed. Robert Capa’s falling soldier, the man jumping the puddle by Cartier-Bresson, the kissing couple in Times Square by Alfred Eisenstaedt, the Vietnamese fleeing from Napalm by Nick Út — all these iconic pictures have been taken with a Leica, and each of them has ingrained itself in collective memory.
