Karin Rehn-Kaufmann talks of her passion for the Leica Gallery concept that has done so much to popularise the marque

It was champagne all round last night at the official opening of Leica’s impressive new store and gallery in Duke Street, Mayfair. The great and the good of the Leica world were out in force, including Dr Andreas Kaufmann, chairman of the supervisory board and managing director of Leica Camera AG and Karin Rehn-Kaufmann, Leica’s art director who is directly responsible for all Leica Galleries throughout the world.

The London opening is a significant step for Leica since it incorporates the first Leica Gallery in Britain, something that has been an omission in such an important market.
