Leica is celebrating its 100th birthday this year. 

1914 signalled the arrival of 35mm photography as it is known today when Oskar Barnack, the founder of Leica, created the first Leica camera, the Leitz. 

Leica came to prominence in photography in 1925, when Leica cameras were used to take several iconic photos from the time. These included Robert Capa's 'Falling Soldier', taken in the Spanish civil war, and the famous portrait of Che Guevera by Alberto Korda. 

To celebrate their centenary, Leica are planning to run several special events and exhibitions this year. Visit the Leica website to find out more about Leica products.
