Annie Leibovitz talks at her just-opened exhibition at San Francisco’s Legion of Honor museum just take a look at the video above.

For decades, Annie Leibovitz has artistically captured the icons of popular culture with her award-winning photography.

Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer’s Life, 1990–2005 looks at 200 of these photos as well as those she has taken of her family and close friends, and thus views a full “photographer’s life.”

As Leibovitz says: “I don’t have two lives. This is one life, and the personal pictures and the assignment work are all part of it.”

Included in this exhibition are portraits of the pregnant Demi Moore, Nelson Mandela in Soweto, and George W. Bush in the White House; searing photo-journalism from the siege of Sarajevo; haunting landscapes from the American West and Jordan; and personal photos documenting the birth of her three daughters and other scenes of private family life.
