Annie Leibovitz Exhibit at MMFA

Tonight marks the opening of a traveling Annie Leibovitz show at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. The show is titled “Women,” collecting more than 80 photographs by Leibovitz. Many people may say they’re not familiar with her work, when they’ve actually seen dozens of her iconic photographs gracing the covers of magazines from Rolling Stone to Vanity Fair. Here’s what the MMFA has to say about the exhibit:

Included in this exhibition of Leibovitz’s stunning black and white and color photos are highlights from her 1999 book Women, featuring portraits of notable figures such as Barbara Bush and Oprah Winfrey, Southern heroines Eudora Welty and Osceola McCarthy, as well as formerly anonymous women who take on rolls as farmers, miners, astronauts, and soldiers.

The show seems like it will be great, not the least because it might help to financially benefit Leibovitz, who is in some serious financial trouble at the moment.
