New server and HTTPS for LeicaRumors


In the past week I have been busy upgrading LeicaRumors to a new server at HostDuplex. The old server could no longer handle the increased traffic. You also probably already noticed that LeicaRumors is now a “secure” website (HTTPS) which is the industry’s standard today. A lot of other changes were also introduced on the back end that should improve the overall user’s experience on the site. If you see any strange behavior, please add a comment to this post.


PentaxRumors and PhotoRumors are also now “secure” websites and NikonRumors will be transitioned over by the end of the week.

Koo Stark unveils first solo exhibition in London for 23 years

‘Kintsugi’ to be held at Leica Mayfair, 5-26 May 2017

Leica UK is to host ‘Kintsugi’, a brand new exhibition by Koo Stark, in Mayfair from 5 to 26 May 2017.

Kintsugi is a chronological, visual representation of Koo Stark’s powerful and personal photographs, capturing fleeting moments during the last three decades of her fascinating and eventful life.

Koo will showcase a varied collection of work from the 1980s to the early 2000s, in the Studio at Leica Mayfair. Koo’s work covers many genres and subject matters: from her early reportage, formal studio portraiture, a series of nudes, and recent still life. Using her artist’s eye, daylight, film and camera, Koo shows us moments from travels with her guru, and a captivating new body of work depicting her lifelong interest in yoga.
