Leica works in collaboration with singer-songwriter Seal on the new special edition Q2 Dawn Camera. This joins the two and channels Seal's soulful lyrics with the art of photography and how it emphasizes human connection. The duo is “shining light on the subjects of a frame – while painting unique perspectives for artists behind the lens.”
It is inspired by the Japanese term 'komorebi' -- this is the term used to describe the way sunlight seeps through tree canopies. The exterior design of the camera is detailed with a special weave using black polyester thread and gold tonal washi paper to create the look. It also has a kimono fabric to ensure that every single camera is unique to its own -- there are only 500 cameras made.
