On Sunday, October 15, 2006 at 7:00pm at the Corcoran Gallery of Art , Annie Leibovitz, one of the most celebrated photographers of our time, renowned for her work in Vanity Fair, Vogue and Rolling Stone, designated a Living Legend by the Library of Congress, named by Smithsonian magazine one of the 35 Innovators of Our Time, will speak about her work over the past fifteen years—with images from her personal as well as professional life. She'll share the arc of her relationship with Susan Sontag (who died in 2004), the birth of her three daughters and many events involving her large and robust family, all part of a larger passion that extends to her professional work; the two worlds meet thematically. Leibovitz will discuss the circumstances under which her photos were made, both technically and logistically, and her relationships with and thoughts about many of her subjects—pregnant Demi Moore, Mandela in Soweta, Clinton in the Oval Office, Jack Nicholson on Mulholland Drive, William Burroughs in Kansas. Following the talk, Ms. Leibovitz will sign copies of her book, A Photographer’s Life: 1990-2005
