Leica Retailer Melbourne now open

The new Leica Store Melbourne is now open (location): "Happy to report the Leica Store Melbourne opened on the weekend and is a really wonderful space. As previously advised it’s a generous space. When entering, if you turn right you encounter a gallery space currently holding a Bruce Gilden exhibition. The space can be enclosed for privacy and reconfigured for use as a studio - Leica Akademie will use it for photoshoots etc. The rest of the store is turned over to the full range of cameras and binoculars, accessories and an extensive range of books. A large bench occupies part of the floor, and there are leather couches, and an espresso machine. The feel of the place is amazing. Very high quality fitout and exceptional attention to detail. It really is an amazing space and full credit to Leica doing it right! The official opening is in a couple of weeks."
