Landscapes by Thomas de Franzoni

“My name is Thomas de Franzoni, I am an Italian fine art photographer based in Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy. I approached photography thanks to my passion for nature and wild animals. After a period dedicated to nature photography, thanks also to my passion for travel, I became more and more interested in landscape photography. I love mainly the landscapes of the Dolomites, the mountain lakes framed by autumn colors, the sinuous hills of Tuscany, the woodlands covered by fog and the picturesque churches of Slovenia. …”

« Prendre quelqu’un en photo, c’est toujours sexy ! »

David Bailey a révolutionné l’art du portrait et de la photographie de mode dans les années 1960. Aussi célèbre que ceux qui posaient pour lui, l’étoile du Swinging London brille désormais parmi les grands photographes composant la collection d’albums de Reporters sans frontières.

Le portfolio de l’album RSF déroule la carrière d’un photographe qui débute comme assistant dans l’atelier d’un photographe de mode, au début des années 1960, avant d’être catapulté à la Une du prestigieux Vogue. Des premiers shootings de mannequins aux portraits des éminences de la pop culture, avec plus de quarante livres à son actif, le maître éblouissant du noir et blanc nous offre de (re)découvrir les photos de légende qui ont émaillé soixante ans de carrière.

A new milestone in Leica’s history. いつもポケットにライカを

Your Story Deserves To Be Told

The first smartphone designed by Leica
Introducing the Leitz Phone 1 to the Japanese market, the first smartphone to combine uncompromising quality, peerless optical engineering and imaging software mastery with the iconic Leica design. It enables you to capture and share personal moments of everyday life with pictures of unique Leica quality.

More than a Smartphone. A century in the making.
Named after our founder and tribute to Ernst Leitz (II), who revolutionized the world of photography in 1924 with the invention of modern 35mm photography. The Leitz Phone 1 has the world-famous Leica camera experience at its heart allowing you to concentrate entirely on adapting the essentials of photography to everyday life.

A new milestone in Leica’s history, it underlines our reputation for the highest quality in technical innovation.

‘Leica has a long-established tradition that is and always has been characterised by the constant pursuit of technical innovation. We welcome smartphones, because they make a very valuable contribution to the world of photography. For Leica, the launch of our own smartphone is the next and logical step on the path to the technologies of the future. Personally, it fills me with pride when I see that Leica Camera AG has once again set a significant milestone in both the history of the company and smartphone photography with the Leitz Phone 1.’ —Dr Andreas Kaufmann, Majority Shareholder and Chairman of the Supervisory Board

ライカは、三脚に据えて使う大型カメラが普通だった1914年に、気軽に持ち運ぶことができて、格段にシャッターチャンスに強い小型軽量なカメラ「ウル・ライカ」を考案したことを原点に、本質を極めた数多くの画期的な製品を作り続け、写真の歴史を大きく変えてきました。そのライカが次のステージとしてスマートフォンを選んだのはある意味必然と言えるでしょう。これからはいつでも、どこでも、スマートフォンでライカのカメラ体験ができるのです。“いつもポケットにライカを”という夢がついに実現しました。

ライカのカメラ体験がいつでもどこでも

「Leitz Phone 1」では、圧倒的な高画質と、ライカらしい優れた描写を実現できるカメラ機能を追求。精密な光学技術の結晶である大口径レンズと、極限の集光能力を持つ大型センサーが、決定的瞬間を卓越した描写力で切り取ります。暗所も明るく、速い動きにも強く、自然な色表現で見たままの世界を写し出します。「Leitz Looks」モードでは、ライカを体現する美しいモノクローム撮影も楽しめます。さらにシャッター音にもこだわり、「ライカM」の音を再現しています。
