Limited to 500 Pieces Worldwide
SKU: 799429190696 Mfg Code: 19069
Leica is excited to unveil the Leica Q2 “Dawn” special edition camera set, designed by Seal, singer, Grammy award-winner and photographer. Paying homage to the soulful lyrics of Seal’s songs, the special edition set celebrates the human connection in the art of making a photograph, shining light on the subjects of a frame - while painting unique perspectives for the artist behind the lens. The Leica Q2 “Dawn” camera’s exquisite, Japanese woven fabric covering is crafted to ensure each of the 500 cameras in the edition is one of a kind. The fabric covering, produced by the Japanese brand Hosoo, is marked as a milestone in the art of weaving, with an innovative process using black thread (93 percent polyester) and gold-colored Japanese paper (7 percent washi).
Drawing inspiration from the golden glow of sunrise and the dance between light and shadow, this set is further accentuated by an exclusive scarf, featuring Seal’s handwritten lyrics. The limited-edition scarf featured in the Q2 “Dawn” by Seal set is designed by multimedia artist Annina Roescheisen, who interprets Seal’s lyrics through gold elements on a black background, further exemplifying the impact of light emerging through darkness. The scarf was developed by New York fashion label rag & bone and produced in Italy.
The set is accompanied by a rope strap, adorned with the handwritten lyric “you became the light on the dark side of me” taken from the song Kiss from a Rose. In addition to the unique iridescent fabric, the Q2 “Dawn” by Seal camera features a black Leica logo, Seal’s engraved signature, and the edition number.
All other technical and physical specifications are identical to the standard production Q2.
