The Museum of Contemporary Art will host the legendary American photographers work organised by the Brooklyn Museum as part of the Sydney International Art Series.
Leibovitz started her career at Rolling Stone Magazine in the 1970s, ten years later she began working for Vanity Fair, and then Vogue US.
Her body of work is diverse from documenting the Rolling Stones on tour, Whoopi Goldberg in a bath of milk, the last professional photo taken of John Lennon, five hours before he was shot, Russian born dancer/actor Mikhail Baryshnikov in a lifted pose on a Georgian Beach and the world of the Little Mermaid with actress Julianne Moore and World Champion swimmer Michael Phelps, to George W. Bush with members of his Cabinet at the White House and her famous 1991 image of Demi Moore nude and pregnant.

The exhibition consists of almost 200 iconic images including personal photographs of her family, her three children, close friends and late partner Susan Sontag, an academic and activist well known for her essays On Photography.
According to the MCA website the exhibition is: "Arranged chronologically, they project a unified narrative of the artist's private life against the backdrop of her public image. "I don't have two lives," Leibovitz says. "This is one life, and the personal pictures and the assignment work are all part of it."
