PROMOTIONAL VIDEO FOR ANNIE LEIBOVITZ’S ONLINE CLASS
Annie Leibovitz, one of the most influential photographers of our time, will return to Downtown, San Antonio, Texas next week to mark the publication of a revised and expanded edition of Annie Leibovitz at Work (Phaidon) at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. The artist will present and discuss a selection of her pictures and offer an insider experience for fans, and aspiring photographers, Wednesday, March 6th at 7:30pm.
Originally published in 2008, Annie Leibovitz at Work was written with young photographers in mind, but it provides an illuminating view of Leibovitz’s photographic practice for a broad audience. There are stories behind some of her best-known images—Richard Nixon’s resignation, the Rolling Stones on tour, Queen Elizabeth II—as well as discussions of lighting, cameras, studios, photojournalism, working with writers, and the ten things she is always asked.
Annie Leibovitz’s astute observations of American life have had a prominent place in the cultural landscape for nearly five decades. She has received many honors, including the International Center of Photography’s Lifetime Achievement Award, the Centenary Medal of the Royal Photographic Society, the Wexner Prize, and the Prince of Asturias Award for Communication and Humanities. She is a Commandeur in the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and has been designated a Living Legend by the Library of Congress. The evening is sure to be an incredible experience.
