Albert Ridgeley
Reparatur und Erinnerung

Albert Ridgeley, is the retired director of Leica. He was born in Alexandria, Egypt in 1932 and studied at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. He continued his training at the Leica academy in Berlin and then lectured on macro- and micro-photography. He speaks English, French, Italian, German, and Arabic. His residence in Bushey in Hertfordshire, England resulted in a connection to Landsberg am Lech, Germany, due to the 19th century artist Hubert von Herkomer, who lived in both places. Ridgeley currently lives in Cornwall, is an active Rotarian, and is active in both music and photography.
