Recently I had the opportunity to view Annie Leibovitz’s WOMEN: New Portraits exhibit. The NYC show was on display in the former Bayview Correctional Facility, the future home of The Women’s Building on the West Side Highway and 20th Street.
I could have sat for hours watching the four wall size projection screens displaying images of women from all corners of the world which the photographer began shooting in 1999. The adjacent reading room was a photographer’s dream, containing nearly every book one would want in a photo library.
This expansive body of work is currently on a 10 city tour with its final stop in Zurich from January 28, 2017 – February 19, 2017. If you are in Zurich during this time, I highly recommend taking time to visit the show!
