Annie Leibovitz’s new show Women: New Portraits

Annie Leibovitz’s new show Women: New Portraits is a continuation of a project that began over 15 years ago. It resulted in a popular series of photographs, published in 1999, featuring celebrities and regular women living in America at the end of the 20th century: a domestic-violence victim, coal miner, socialite, surgeon, astronaut, even actresses Jerry Hall and Elizabeth Taylor. Leibovitz’s new portraits debuted in January in London and are said to reflect the changes in the roles of women today. Photos from the original series will also be on view as will portraits taken in each of the new exhibit’s host cities — the show will travel to Tokyo, San Francisco, Singapore, Hong Kong, Mexico City, Istanbul, Frankfurt, New York and Zurich over the next 12 months (dates TBD). Annie Leibovitz began working as a photojournalist for Rolling Stone in the 1970s. She became the magazine's chief photographer in 1973, and 10 years later began working for Vanity Fair and then Vogue. Free.
