Who We Are: Portraits by Annie Leibovitz (working title)

More Info Coming Soon

Who We Are: Portraits by Annie Leibovitz (working title) centers around a new group of photographs highlighting current events and exceptional figures in today’s world. Anchored by these new works currently in production, the exhibition also features a complementary selection of Leibovitz’s works from the past decade. Displayed across both printed and digital mediums, Who We Are offers a dynamic peek into the artist’s contemporary practice and focus. Whether highlighting household names or local heroes, these works link together Leibovitz’s discerning vision and desire to celebrate the extraordinary now.

With more than five decades of experience photographing some of the most influential names in entertainment, politics, business, and athletics, Leibovitz has established herself as a keen watcher of society. In 1973, at the age of 23, Leibovitz became Rolling Stone magazine’s chief photographer. Through her long-standing work with Vanity Fair and Vogue, Leibovitz further honed her signature blend of grit and grace that has come to define much of her practice. In 1991 she became the first female artist to have a solo show at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC.
