There is so much to say about this striking exhibition:  an incredible photographer, a beautiful mix of women, 60 years of work, stunning installation.

The most important thing to say is if you are in Los Angeles before December 21, it is worth a visit to Gagosian Gallery (456 North Camden Drive, Beverly Hills) to be wowed and inspired.   

As much I was smitten by the large prints, the beautiful installation, the transparencies and the iconic faces - My absolute favorites were the tiny little contact sheets - all marked up with crop marks, lines, circles and x's. Always fun to feel you are peeking into the thought process on an artist.
