About The Exhibition
As the first comprehensive exhibition in Los Angeles devoted to the earliest work of Annie Leibovitz, ‘The Early Years’ features more than 4,000 photographs taken between 1970 and 1983. Arranged chronologically and thematically, the exhibition begins with her work for Rolling Stone magazine and visually chronicles the defining moments and key protagonists of the decade. Over the course of her career, Leibovitz became an avatar of the changing cultural role of photography as an artistic medium. Pinned to walls gridded with string, the images on view reveal her singular ability to merge the tactics of portraiture and photojournalism with profound humanism and sly wit.
