11 June 2019

Hauser & Wirth is pleased to announce exclusive worldwide representation of celebrated American photographer Annie Leibovitz. Following her early training at the San Francisco Art Institute, Leibovitz honed her talent into an acclaimed career in photojournalism and portraiture. Over the course of the past five decades, through a poetic body of far-reaching work Leibovitz has become an avatar of the changing cultural role of photography as an artistic medium. Her immense and varied output reveals a singular ability to merge the tactics of portraiture with profound humanism and sly wit.
