wexner center - annie liebovitz

top 5 about this show:
5.  annie liebovitz' photos are full of people you recognize - presidents, actors, etc.
4.  the creative poses - think whoopi in the milk bath.
3.  it's got folks you don't recognize, but could look at for a long while.
2.  the three large photos of ordinary women - one with her children, contrasted with the same women in vegas showgirl outfits.  unrecognizable.
1.  how accessible annie's work is, simple and powerful.

if you get a chance to see an exhibition of annie liebovitz, it's time well spent.  her show is finished at the wexner center in columbus, but that ohio state university museum is worth a visit, too.

happy wednesday!


  1. I saw an Annie Liebovitz exhibition in Sydney and loved it, my favourite photos were actually the shots of ordinary folk (many from her own life).

  2. I hope this exhibition make its way to Los Angeles. I would love to see Liebovitz's work up close. I shall let you know if it does. Hope your new year is off to a wonderful start, Noreen.

  3. I'm a big fan of hers.She's been through a lot in her life and has an amazing talent! xo Teri

  4. I'm a huge fan of AL and have seen some lovely exhibitions in London. My favourite was a very personal one where it was full of friends, family, Susan Sonntag etc.

    She must be the greatest of our era!

  5. I would love to see one of her exhibits!!

  6. Oh, I would love to see one of her exhibits! I could never do this kind of photography, but I just love it. How lucky you were to get to one. Must have been such an experience.

  7. happy new year noreen!
