This summer the MCA is thrilled to present the work of legendary American photographer Annie Leibovitz to Australian audiences. Leibovitz has been making powerful images documenting American popular culture since the early 1970s, when her photographs began appearing in Rolling Stone Magazine. Ten years later she began working for Vanity Fair, and then Vogue US, creating a diverse body of work.
