Annie Leibovitz’s life in pictures

The exhibition Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer’s Life 1990–2005 on view at the Kunst Haus Wien until January 31, 2010, encompasses a total of over 150 photographs, many of them large-format works, as well as a number of private photos. Numerous sequences of photographs focus on her parents with images of family reunions and trips to the sea. And again and again we find ourselves face to face with the celebrities whom Annie Leibovitz portrays with such startling immediacy: Bill Clinton, Nelson Mandela, Demi Moore, Brad Pitt, William Burroughs and many others. Leibovitz’ works in this exhibition emanate an emotional power that eclipses everything the photographer has done before.
