My Leica SL Story and Photos in the latest Vault Magazine

It took me awhile to find a copy of Vault. I visited about 4 National Bookstores before I found a copy (it has been on the stands since December). So make sure you grab a copy if you find one! These are going, going, gone.

I was thrilled to see the photos I took in Wetzlar, Germany. I also had the opportunity to write the article for this feature.



Here are some more photos of the beautiful architecture at Leitz Park in Wetzlar, Germany. If you took an aerial shot of the architecture, you’d actually see the shape of a camera.leitz_park_wetzlar_jarconcengco_01 leitz_park_wetzlar_jarconcengco_02 leitz_park_wetzlar_jarconcengco_03 leitz_park_wetzlar_jarconcengco_04 leitz_park_wetzlar_jarconcengco_05 leitz_park_wetzlar_jarconcengco_06

The Cafe Leitz (I wish I could go back and have a cup of coffee):

There is also a factory tour that we got to go on to see the processes each Leica camera goes through to ensure quality:
