I had the great honor of having an image of mine published in the Leica User Forum Book along with many other great photographers. Â The purpose of the book is to raise funds for Leica’s charity AICR (Association for International Cancer Research). Â This opportunity has meant a great deal to me because my father was diognosed with cancer several years back. Â Through cancer research he has recovered and is doing great.
If you are interested in helping support the cause you can do so by purchasing the book HERE. Â The bookÂ is available for anyone to buy and AICR will receive Â£5 from each copy sold. So far over Â£7,000 has been raised just from the entry submissions alone! Â Click here for a Thank You post from Leica’s Blog.
Here are a few images of the book and the image of mine that was published. Â Unfortunatly they misspelled my name, but for the cause I guess I can let that slide :). Â The last name reads “Orilion”, but needs to have two “L”s and read “Orillion”. Better luck next time I guess.

“This photo book â€“ the proceeds of which are being donated to the AICR (Association for International Cancer Research) â€“ is an extremely successful illustration of the passion and dedication of a rather special Leica community. It leaves no doubt whatsoever that our customers are the best.”
