MADRID.- An exhibition gathering 220 pictures of important culture and showbusiness figures, works made to order and images showing family intimacy of Annie Leibovitz.

The exhibition gets to Madrid after having been in the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris, the National Portrait Gallery (London) and the C/O Berlin.

Annie Leibovitz is one of the best-known portrait photographers in the world. Throughout her career she has redefined the concept of celebrity portraits, changing existing preconceived ideas on the people who populate the cultural landscape.

The exhibition, which offers 220 works, shows famous portraits of public figures such as Jamie Foxx, Nicole Kidman and Brad Pitt as well as the memorable photo of a pregnant Demi Moore. It also includes portraits of artists, architects and writers, such as Richard Avedon, Philip Johnson and Cindy Sherman. Commissioned works are also presented, such as her reportage on the siege of Sarajevo in the 1990s or on Hillary Clinton’s election as a member of the United States Senate. A major part of the exhibition are Leibovitz’s personal photographs, which testify to private moments in her life, such as the birth and childhood of her daughters and her family reunions.

Annie Leibovitz (Connecticut, 1949) studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute and attended photography classes. She was the chief photographer for Rolling Stone magazine. In 1983 she entered Vanity Fair and in 1998 Vogue. She is the author of influential advertising campaigns for American Express, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy. Her work has been published on numerous occasions and displayed at the International Center of Photography in New York and the National Portrait Gallery in London.
