Annie Leibovitz Media Preview

Leibovitz (born October 2, 1949) reached stardom as the chief photographer of Rolling Stone magazine in the ’70s with her iconic portraits of celebrities, but that was only the beginning of her long-standing career. Since then, she’s built a prolific archive of work featured in retrospectives worldwide and best-selling books.

You’ll find her “master set” of 156 photos, a handpicked selection summing up her personal and professional photography over a 40-year span, at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio, through Dec. 30.
