7 DIGITAL ORIGINALS - a cooperation with Leica
7 DIGITAL ORIGINALS is a cooperation between Leica and 7 globally selected handcraft artists who carefully transform digital images taken with a Leica T into unique analog originals by hand. Dissolving the boundaries between digital and analog, virtual and real, reproduction and original, it all seeks to answer one question: What does it feel like to transform modern digital photography into real tangible, one-off pieces; each crafted with incredible love, care and expertise?
Exclusively for purchasers of the special Leica T 7 DIGITAL ORIGINALS EDITIONS, the showcased handcrafts will be available as part of a strictly limited service.
SPECIAL HANDCRAFT EDITIONS
In the strictly limited special edition of a maximum of 50 pieces per handcraft artist the 7 DIGITAL ORIGINALS merge into one product. With just a few "clicks" the purchaser can upload his best picture to the selected handcraft artist - it will be exclusively transformed into an analog masterpiece and sent to him.
