Annie Leibovitz Photo Exhibition at Norton Museum of Art

This exhibition runs from January 17, 2013 through June 9, 2013—features 39 iconic photographs the Museum acquired from the internationally-renowned photographer, and focuses on work that is direct, straightforward, and relies on an essential element of all great portraits–a vital connection between artist and subject.  Exhibition curator Charles Stainback has long admired Leibovitz’s work, but believes too much emphasis has been put on a select few images from the artist’s overall oeuvre —Whoopee Goldberg, Steve Martin, “John and Yoko”—that have become as famous as the people they portray. While the images in this exhibition are also of celebrities, they are quieter, more subtle, and in some ways, more provocative and interesting than the images that made Leibovitz a household name. This exhibition shines a light on work that should no longer be overlooked.
