For the next few weeks in New York City, you can freely visit women in prison. Talented women, glamorous women, proud women, and regular women —they’re all there, as portraits by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz.
The show, WOMEN: New Portraits, debuted in Chelsea on November 18th as a pop-up inside the Bayview Correctional Facility. It’s a recently shuttered women’s prison whose future will be as potent as its past when it reopens in 2020 as The Women’s Building, “a global hub for the girls’ and women’s rights movement.”
