IN STORE EVENTS
Andrew Stuart Exhibition: "Downstage" - Bellevue, WA
UNTIL DECEMBER 7
Leica Store Bellevue is fired up to exhibit Andrew Stuart’s “Downstage” exhibition beginning on October 27, until December 7, 2019.
A photo isn’t just an image. It’s a piece of time captured for all of eternity. As an immortalized moment, there should be emotion, there should be action, and there should be a narrative at the center of every single picture—reflecting life and all of its motions and nuances. Every one of Andrew Stuart’s photos relays a story. Whether it’s a shot of Dave Grohl in the recording studio pondering his next musical choice for Foo Fighters, a snap of Kat Von D pensively drawing or writing lyrics, or a candid image of Mick Fleetwood’s beaming grin, his photographs come to life due to his ability to capture artists and musicians at their most vulnerable and vibrant having spent his entire career around some of the biggest and best names in the business.
Yan Wang "To Curiosity" Exhibition & Opening Reception - Bellevue, WA
Opening DECEMBER 8
Closing JANUARY 11
Please join us at Leica Store Bellevue on Sunday, December 8 at 1:00pm for a captivating and inspirational talk by Yan Wang at his exhibition opening reception. “I am a scientist, engineer, and pilot. I hold curiosity of our world and I am always interested in the secrets of Mother Nature hidden from our naked eyes. In order to explore them I have to push the limit of the tools at hand. It is a tough journey, but also filled with surprises that are revealed through persistence and creativity. In this talk and exhibition I will introduce how my curiosity pushed me to go beyond the boundary of humans’ capabilities using common and uncommon photographic equipment to take photos of darker and distant objects (astrophotography), smaller objects (macrophotography), rare scenes (landscapes), and from uncommon perspectives (e.g. aviation photography) that are different that what we are used to experiencing.” Yan Wang.
