The Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney is the exclusive Australian venue for the exhibition Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer's Life 1990–2005. Annie Leibovitz is without a doubt one of the most celebrated photographers of our time. The exhibition brings together almost 200 iconic images of famous public figures together with personal photographs of her family and close friends. Arranged chronologically, they project a unified narrative of the artist's private life against the backdrop of her public image. "I don't have two lives," Leibovitz says. "This is one life, and the personal pictures and the assignment work are all part of it."

At the heart of the exhibition, Leibovitz's personal photography documents scenes from her life, including the birth and childhood of her three daughters, and vacations, reunions, and rites of passage with her parents, her extended family and close friends.

The exhibition features Leibovitz's portraits of well-known figures, including actors such as Jamie Foxx, Daniel Day Lewis, Demi Moore, Scarlett Johansson, Al Pacino, Nicole Kidman and Brad Pitt as well as artists and architects such as Richard Avedon, Brice Marden, Philip Johnson, Chuck Close, Cindy Sherman and Leigh Bowery.

"We are thrilled to be presenting this important exhibition by one of the world's most celebrated photographers. It offers Australians a rare opportunity to see a world-renowned collection of images, from famous public figures to intimate family portraits," says the Director of the MCA, Sydney, Elizabeth Ann Macgregor.
