Leigh Wiener: The Artist at Work
January 9, 2020 – August 8, 2021
Over the course of a fifty-year career, Leigh Wiener (1929-1993) captured iconic images that appeared in hallmark publications including the Los Angeles Times, Life, Time, Fortune, and Sports Illustrated. Pepperdine Libraries presented a sampling of the myriad prints that Wiener produced in his darkroom. The photographs offer intimate snapshots of Hollywood legends, Jazz Age greats, U.S. presidents, and other leading figures in twentieth-century America. Viewed together, they uniquely capture what it means to be an artist—from both sides of the camera.
