Annie Leibovitz and Mikhail Baryshnikov: One Moment, Two Stars

After shooting Louis Vuitton advertisement campaigns for the last three years, Annie Leibovitz got in front of the lens, with dancer and choreographer Mikhail Baryshnikov, for Vuitton’s newest campaign in the Core Values series.  The series has previously featured legends such as Sean Connery, Mikhail Gorbachev, Keith Richards, Buzz Aldrin, Roman and Sofia Coppola, and Catherine Deneuve.  The longtime friends posed in Leibovitz’s New York City studio, where the subtle lighting captured a tender moment between the two old friends.

The Controversial Art of Robert Mapplethorpe

The Controversial Art of Robert Mapplethorpe

This piece is a tribute to Robert Mapplethorpe and is comprised of photographs, a video and slide show that present selected works dating from 1969 to 1988.  The photographs focus on three traditional genres: still life, nudes and portraits.  Mapplethorpe’s photography captures a stark beauty, often implying a more ominous and forbidding world of sexuality and violence.  His artistic work, frequently controversial, invests his still life and portrait subjects with an erotic charge that transforms and ennobles them.  Mapplethorpe’s photography captures the peak of bloom, the apogee of power, the most seductive instant and the ultimate present that stops time and delivers the perfect moment into history.  Speaking to his influence on the world of modern art, photography will never be the same.
