Creative process: Annie Leibovitz

This morning, I saw the Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer's Life 1990-2005 exhibit at the Legion of Honor. The show included a replica of the walls Annie used to edit her pictures in her upstate New York home for the book that accompanied the exhibit. It was a unique way of experiencing her creative process. Laser prints from tearsheets, polaroids, contact sheets & proof prints held by push pins or binder clips lined the hallway: personal pictures were featured on the left side while assignment work was showcased on the opposite wall. I loved walking through the space and examining her images in raw form.

Here is the New York Times article showing Annie Leibovitz working on this section of the exhibit.
