Behind the Image

In the summer of 1968, after her freshman year at the San Francisco Art Institute, Annie Leibovitz bought her first camera. Over the course of the following decades, Leibovitz has developed a unique photographic language that has made her one of the leading voices in contemporary American portraiture.

Ahead of an exhibition of works by the artist at Hauser & Wirth Hong Kong, we present an audio guide to selected photographic prints from both her early years and fashion images from the past two decades. The guide, which was prepared for visitors to the gallery where it is supplemented by wall texts, provides an understanding of Leibovitz’s approach to her subject and the stories behind each image.
