All of my works are also for

Paint Party Friday

 

 

I have a wish for Blogger bloggers:

most of PPF bloggers do NOT have

name/URL option to leave a comment.

Because I have self-hosted blog that

option is the only one for me, please change your settings!

(I don’t use google, wp..or any other options)

 

If you don’t/will not have this option please tell me why not?

 

 

 

Have a relaxing weekend!

I had an eye control today. There’s still a tiny, tiny ‘drop’. Hopefully it goes away and

 

my sight will get totally sharp with time. No glasses needed but good light yes.

 

Next control is in August.

 

Some time ago I sketched this very quickly to remember what a saw –

so many bubbles around me…

holiday in Sydney continues…

Monday, February 28th, 2011


We visited Museum of contemporary art – MCA –

 

Annie Leibovitzs exhibition

‘A Photographer’s Life 1990 – 2005’

 

Unfortunately I couldn’t take pictures inside…

 

 

Annie Leibovittz in MCA Sydney Australia

 

 

“Annie 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.”

Read more and enjoy a couple of Leibovitz’s photographs on MCA’s site.

 

We all enjoyed the exhibition. Pure art!

 


Museum of contemporary art - MCA - Sydney, Australia by BLOGitse

 

ABC Sydney writes: 

 

Meeting Annie Leibovitz: Behind the camera with an iconic photographer

By Matthew Perkins

“Personalised reportage was where I started,”

Annie Leibovitz reveals to media on a tour of her

exhibition at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art.

 

She refers to people ‘trying to hide’ in her presence,

as though the lens bares them a little.

 

But, how much does Leibovitz bare herself?
