Annie Leibovitz's exhibit photos both iconic, personal
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - It was a job in itself for Annie Leibovitz to cull the first 40 years of her wide-ranging life as a photographer down to a core "master set" to be turned into museum-quality prints.
Leibovitz had so many pivotal moments to draw from: her thousands of assignments for Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and Vogue; her enviable access to rock stars, athletes, dancers and politicians; and volumes of personal photographs.
The 63-year-old Leibovitz envisioned selecting 100 prints as a legacy for her three children, but ultimately landed at 156.
The full complement, Annie Leibovitz: Master Set, is displayed for the first time in its entirety at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus through Dec 30.
