The Leica-Immortal Collaboration
March 2010, shooting downtown Amman, I get a text from Laith, “Leica , want to talk” without that even registering I sent him a reply ,“ What?” He goes on to tell me how he we were contacted by Leica through twitter and that Leica wants to talk to us for some reason. They had been watching our work for a while and enjoyed what we were posting on the blog.
April 2010 Immortal Entertainment is proud to announce the commencement of a collaboration with the world finest camera makers, Leica, chosen among 12 photographers around the world, Immortal now has in its possession Leica’s newest camera to test, and to showcase our photos in a a website exclusively designed by Leica for the promotion of its new camera
No we can’t tell you the name nor can we get into the specifications of the camera, but in due time we will be able to share some information, but we prefer to let the images speak for themselves anyways.
A couple of years ago I got my first Leica at a second hand camera shop in Amsterdam, since then I have gone to love every leica i’ve held in my hands. From Chris Week’s MP to a Leica Mini Zoom film point and shoot, all have a certain brilliance to them . So when Leica contacted us, it was great to see that our work has been noticed by them and that we are part of a group of people around the world sharing our stories and the moments we capture in our city. So here are a couple of shots that i’ve captured in downtown Amman.
Earlier that day I met with my friend, Jordanian actress Lara Sawalha and did three quick portraits.
