THE COL­LEC­TIVE

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Life -

An­nie Lei­bovitz be­gan her ca­reer as a staff pho­tog­ra­pher for the leg­endary Rolling Stone mag­a­zine, but it was at Van­ity Fair that she ex­per­i­mented and grew into one of Amer­ica’s most fa­mous liv­ing pho­tog­ra­phers. Blessed with the unique abil­ity to cap­ture that ex­act mo­ment when her sub­jects re­veal their true selves, Lei­bowitz is an un­ri­valled in­dus­try icon.

Be­gin­ning this month, an ex­tra­or­di­nary collection of her work will be on dis­play at the ArtS­cience Mu­seum at Ma­rina Bay Sands, mak­ing Sin­ga­pore one of only two cities the fas­ci­nat­ing ex­hi­bi­tion will ap­pear in (the other be­ing Seoul). ‘An­nie Lei­bovitz: A Pho­tog­ra­pher’s Life 1990-2005’ takes you on a vis­ual jour­ney through her life on both sides of the lens. Renowned for her nude por­trait of a preg­nant Demi Moore as well as the first fam­ily pho­tos of Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, and Suri Cruise, other A-lis­ters she has cap­tured on film in­clude Leonardo DiCaprio and Ni­cole Kid­man, just two of many stars whose por­traits will be on dis­play at the ex­hi­bi­tion. Here, al­most 200 thought-pro­vok­ing pho­to­graphs chal­lenge the viewer’s imag­i­na­tion and per­cep­tion.

The heart of the col­lec­tive is the per­sonal mem­oir of Lei­bovitz her­self, doc­u­ment­ing par­tic­u­lar time­frames within her sto­ried life: from the birth of her daugh­ters to fam­ily get­aways and lost re­la­tion­ships. Un­til Oc­to­ber 19 at the ArtS­cience Mu­seum, Ma­rina Bay Sands, Sin­ga­pore. Tel: +65 6688 8826. www.marin­abaysands.com/ArtS­cienceMu­seum
