Annie Leibovitz
Biography

     One of the most celebrated photographers of our era, Annie Leibovitz's stunning portraits have been featured on the covers of magazines for nearly thirty years. Born in 1949 and raised in Maryland, the artist currently lives in New York City. Her powerful likenesses were first reproduced in Rolling Stone magazine in 1970 (she became the chief photographer for the magazine in 1973) and throughout the Seventies she documented numerous concert tours including the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead as well as numerous highly esteemed artistic, political and entertainment figures.
     She became the first contributing photographer for Vanity Fair magazine in 1983 and published her first monograph later that year. In 1984 she was awarded "Photographer of the Year" by the American Society of Magazine Photographers and in 1987 American Express and The Gap commissioned her award winning advertising campaigns.
     In 1991, the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC, in association with the International Center for Photography in New York, mounted the important touring exhibition, "Photographs: Annie Leibovitz 1970-1990." Leibovitz became the very first woman and only the second living photographer to be awarded this honor by the Gallery. The exhibition was accompanied by a major monograph including 200 reproductions; it traveled internationally through 1997. In 1995 the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games commissioned Leibovitz to document the 26th Olympiad held in the summer of 1996 in Atlanta, Georgia, resulting in an acclaimed exhibition and fully illustrated catalog of richly toned black and white silverprints.
     In 1999 the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, mounted the exhibition "Annie Leibovitz: Women", accompanied by a major book with essay by Susan Sontag. A broad spectrum of over 100 powerful portraits of contemporary American women are included in the series: an astronaut, a CEO, rock stars, actresses, First Ladies and Supreme Court Justices of the United States, socialites and showgirls, poets and painters, political activists and the homeless. The unknown, the famous and the infamous are included and the sum total is a collection of profoundly moving portraits of contemporary womankind. As Leibovitz proclaims, these images document "how we look and what we do. I'm very moved by the sense of dignity these women have." The exhibition, Annie Leibovitz: Women" traveled to the International Center for Photography in New York in 2000 and will tour to museums across the United States for the next few years.
     Numerous photographs by Annie Leibovitz are available through the gallery, usually in the 16 x 20" or 20 x 24" format. Please contact the gallery for exact pricing and availability.
