Steve McCurry wins Leica Hall of Fame Award

The world-renowned reportage photographer is the first awardee.

The Leica Hall of Fame Award, which has now been awarded for the first time, stands in a tradition of earlier awards initiated by Leica Camera to honour outstanding photographers. During the "Tribute to Photography" night on September 1st, an event within the framework of the St. Moritz Art Masters in Switzerland, Steve McCurry was awarded the prize donated by Leica Camera AG: a Leica M9-P with the engraved name of the award and Steve McCurry's signature.
