Screening of “Annie Leibovitz: Life Through a Lens”


In the context of the exhibition Notman, A Visionary Photographer, the McCord invites you to discover another historically significant photographer, especially in the world of fashion and portrait photography: Annie Leibovitz.

Directed by Barbara Leibovitz, this film gives an intimate glimpse of the life of her sister Annie Leibovitz. Popularized by magazines such as Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair, she became most famous for her unusual photographs of celebrities and public figures. Many of her portraits, including her memorable shot of Yoko Ono and John Lennon few days before his assassination, have become emblematic pictures. With intimacy and boldness, this movie unveils Annie Leibovitz’s photographic process and that characteristically disarming charm which enables her to put at ease whomever she points with her lens.

Free and open to all.

Location:  J. Armand Bombardier Theatre at the McCord Museum
