Leica Galleries donate $25k in profits from the Lenny Kravitz "FLASH" exhibition to "100Cameras," which empowers children by teaching them to share their perspectives through photography.

It's also enough to by ONE child a Lenny Kravitz "Correspondent" model Leica!!! In all seriousness, it's pretty cool that Leica and Kravitz are supporting this charity. Plus I have more respect for the faux patina of the "Correspondent" after hearing Lenny talk about his father's worn Leica, and how the custom model is a tribute to his dad. A pretty cool tribute IMHO.

"Street photography in Britain is going though a very vibrant period, but it has a problem with the fine art world. You won't often see it in the galleries. It's almost as if it's seen as too street-level, too authentic in some way."

Something to geek-out about. And possibly fear? Netflix’s banners are made sans-designers. As my friend Jessyel says, "Algorithms are quickly replacing us." http://techblog.netflix.com/2016/03/extracting-image-metadata-at-scale.html
