Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer’s Life . 1990-2005 (C/O Berlin)


The world-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz presents her exhibition  “A Photographer’s Life . 1990-2005” at the gallery C/O Berlin after having been shown at various venues in the USA, in France and the UK.

The gallery C/O Berlin presents from 21 February to 24 May 2009 the exhibition “Annie Leibovitz – A Photographer’s Life . 1990-2005”. It is a chronolocial and very personal presentation of 200 photos of one of the internationally most renowned photographers. After being shown e.g. at Brooklyn Museum in New York, Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris last at National Portrait Gallery in London, the exhibition makes its only stop in Germany at C/O Berlin.

Leibovitz, born in 1949 in Westport, Connecticut, USA, is especially famous for her portraits, published e.g. at Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and Vogue. For our context, her photos of  e.g. Nelson Mandela and George W. Bush with his cabinet are particularly interesting. In the 1990s, the photographer went to Bosnia and Rwanda, too. Her photograph of a bicycle lying on the blood-stained ground in Sarajevo is a powerful example: his civilian rider, a 16-year-old boy, has just been shot by a sniper during the siege of this city in 1994.
