About This Exhibition

Sundaram Tagore Singapore is pleased to announce an exhibition of iconic images by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Over a storied forty-year career, Leibovitz has become best known for her portraits of public figures. The exhibition, which is comprised of thirty-eight large-scale prints in both color and black and white, showcases a selection of her most enduring work. The subjects include Andy Warhol, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Yo-Yo Ma, the Dalai Lama and Queen Elizabeth II. The photographs being exhibited are from her Master Set as well as match prints that were made by Leibovitz during the production of Taschen’s recently published “Sumo”-size limited-edition book of her work.

The exhibition is running concurrently with Annie Leibovitz A Photographer’s Life 1990-2005, on view through October 19 at the ArtScience Museum at the Marina Bay Sands.

Annie Leibovitz began her career as a photojournalist for Rolling Stone magazine in 1970, while she was still a student at the San Francisco Art Institute. She joined the staff of Vanity Fair, magazine in 1983. At Vanity Fair, and, later, also Vogue, she developed a large body of work—portraits of actors, directors, writers, musicians, athletes, and political and corporate figures—that expanded her collective portrait of contemporary life.

Leibovitz is the recipient of many honors, including the International Center of Photography’s Lifetime Achievement Award, The American Society of Magazine Editors’ first Creative Excellence Award and the Centenary Medal of the Royal Photographic Society in London. In 2006, she was decorated a Commandeur in the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government. Leibovitz has been designated a Living Legend by the U.S. Library of Congress. She lives in New York.

Exhibitions of Leibovitz’s work have been held at museums and galleries all over the world, including the National Portrait Gallery and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC; the International Center of Photography in New York; the Brooklyn Museum; the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam; the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris; the National Portrait Gallery in London; the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg and the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow.

Several collections of Leibovitz’s work have been published. They include Annie Leibovitz: Photographs (1983); Annie Leibovitz: Photographs 1970–1990 (1991); Olympic Portraits (1996); Women(1999), in collaboration with Susan Sontag; American Music (2003); A Photographer’s Life, 1990-2005 (2006); Annie Leibovitz at Work(2008), a first-person commentary on her career; Pilgrimage (2011) and Annie Leibovitz (2014), the third of Taschen’s limited-edition “Sumo” books.
