The exhibition “Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer’s Life 1990–2005” at the Museum of Private Collections of the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts ends January 15th.
The current exhibition at the department of private collections is based on a book of photography that was published five years ago. The exhibition brings together about two hundred images of famous public figures together with personal photographs of her family and close friends. Arranged chronologically, they project a unified narrative of the artist’s private life against the backdrop of her public image.
At the heart of the exhibition are Leibovitz’s personal photographic documents: scenes from her life, including the birth and childhood of her three daughters. There are vacations, reunions, rites of passage with her parents, her extended family and close friends.
The exhibition features Leibovitz’s portraits of well-known figures, including actors such as Jamie Foxx, Daniel Day Lewis, Demi Moore, Nelson Mandela, Scarlett Johansson, Al Pacino, Nicole Kidman and Brad Pitt as well as artists and architects such as Richard Avedon, Brice Marden, Philip Johnson, Chuck Close and Cindy Sherman.
