Annie Leibovitz HK Show Photographer's Debut Solo Exhibit

[24/04/12] 

Annie Leibovitz's debut solo show in Hong Kong will be held at the Sundaram Tagore Gallery on Hollywood Road. Taking place from May 10 - June 17, the exhibition will explore the theme of power in public and private spheres. Having said that, all we really want to know is how one of the most famous photographers of her generation, the last to shoot John Lennon (pun intended), could have got into such financial difficulty that she had to pawn away her image rights a couple of years ago?

Anyway, back to the photographs. Subjects in the upcoming exhibition include Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Steve Martin, Nicole Kidman, Philip Glass, and Angelina Jolie which has got all the makings of an exceptional dinner party. So long as you could find something to feed them. That lot must have been through every dietary fad or adopted every moral standpoint on dining since Jesus fed the 5,000.

The most compelling feature of the portraits, meanwhile, is how they reveal the private side of celebs who otherwise wear their public faces at all times. If only our faces looked that good, eh. It’s free to enter the exhibit where 25 pieces will be on display (all for sale) ranging from the 1970s – 2009. There's no news yet on pricing, but surely beggars can’t be choosers? Then again, it is art we're talking about...

Who says the financial crisis didn’t reach the top?
