An Afternoon with Annie, Andy and Doc at the AGNS
Saturday, September 9, 2023 1 PM

Back by popular demand, we have arranged a viewing of a selection of prints from the Annie Leibovitz: Photographs from her Books collection held in trust at the AGNS. This year we will also be viewing images from Andy Warhol’s Little Red Book #144 and Harold “Doc” Edgerton.

The images in the set have appeared in ten books: Annie Leibovitz: Photographs (1983); The White Oak Dance Project (1990); Annie Leibovitz: Photographs 1970-1990 (1991); Olympic Portraits (1996); Women (1999), American Music (2003); A Photographer’s Life: 1990-2005 (2006); Annie Leibovitz at Work (2008); Pilgrimage (2011); and a limited-edition volume to be published at the end of the year. The set of photographs is Number One in an edition of three sets.

Andy Warhol was an American visual artist and is known for his pop art. Also known as “Papa Flash”, Harold “Doc” Edgerton developed the strobe in the 1930s and was responsible for developing many of the high-speed photography techniques that are still in use today (

This in-person event at the AGNS on Saturday Sept 9, 2023 at 1pm is limited to 20 paid up PGNS members, so all the more reason to make sure you have paid your dues to our Treasurer, Dean Hirtle. Email Joyce by Sept 6 to be added to the list of participants.

Full details will be provided closer to the date to those attending.

After viewing the prints, you may wish to consider paying the AGNS fee and explore the rest of the Art Gallery Exhibits which include the exhibit “Arctic/Amazon: Networks of Global Indigeneity” as well as the work of Nelson White and “Realism’s Reach”.
