Leica M10-R, black chrome
A Shanghai Story
Trunk Xu, one of China‘s
most renowned editorial
and fashion photographers
documents the daily life of Lulu,
using the Leica M10-R
with various M-lenses.
The unique boy from Shanghai grants him deep insights into his daily life and his habits, his happiness and sorrow.
"When I was looking for the subject of this photo series, I was trying to find someone different, someone full of life. Lulu was willing to work with me to create something different by sharing his dissimilitude in front of the camera."
"I started by getting to know Lulu – his personality, preferences and living habits, to develop a full understanding of him. We did a lot of things he liked, visited many places he frequently visited."
"I really wanted to create images that reflected my understanding of him, and at the same time doesn't contradict who he is. I believed that throughout the communication process and the photo shoot, we were both very sincere."
"The look of the M10-R is "the Leica" in my mind. It’s very compact, so it doesn’t appear very intrusive or offensive. It makes it easier for the photographer to blend in with the environment and capture the moment."
