With an expansive, multi-faceted and critically-acclaimed body of work developed over a career of +45 years (and counting), Annie Leibovitz has established herself as nothing short of an icon in the world of portraiture photography. From actors to athletes to attorney generals, filmmakers to philanthropists to fellow photographers, historians to healthcare advocates, artists to writers to business executives and beyond -- Leibovitz has photographed individuals from every walk of life.
What sets Leibovitz's portraits apart in a crowded industry is her unique ability to capture who a person is at his/her very core. Her portraits represent her subjects in a style that feels unapologetically honest, while simultaneously celebrating who they are. In her latest traveling exhibit, "Women: New Portraits", Leibovitz presents a series of photographs of women from wildly diverse facets of society, and beautifully challenges our often narrow perceptions of women in the world today. Hundreds of women are featured, including Adele, Amy Schumer, Barbara Walters, Hilary Clinton, Queen Elizabeth II, Jane Goodall, Sheryl Sandberg, Lena Dunham, and Gloria Steinem, among many other familiar and unfamiliar faces.
The traveling exhibit was showcased in London and Tokyo earlier this year, and just wrapped up today in San Francisco. It's global 10-city tour will continue in Singapore next, followed by Hong Kong, Mexico, Istanbul, Frankfurt, New York and Zurich.
