Inside Annie Leibovitz’s Latest Photography Exhibit
This Saturday marks the opening of a vast collection of photographs by Annie Leibovitz at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio, including the 156 portraits in “Master Set,” displayed together for the first time. The exhibition encompasses highlights from her various assignments and projects she has shot through the years. Leibovitz is famous for capturing the essence of a person through the viewfinder of a camera, and the selections are emblematic of that talent. The show features many photographs that were originally taken for Vanity Fair, including a nude and pregnant Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg in a bathtub of milk, Lance Armstrong racing nude, and David Byrne in a suit made of leaves. The exhibition also showcases images from “Pilgrimage,” a series of landscapes, interiors, and objects that are personal points of interest for Leibovitz. The show will be up from September 22 to December 30.
