From 13 February to 3 March, The Peninsula Paris invites guests and visitors alike to discover The Peninsula Hotels through the works of the celebrated photographer, Annie Leibovitz.

"Portraits of Peninsula" is a collection of black-and-white photos that go to the heart of the guest experience that distinguishes The Peninsula Hotels as the finest in the world. With the photos, Leibovitz departs from her tradition of celebrity portraiture to focus on the people and personalities behind the Peninsula brand. While not famous, the faces of Peninsula pageboys, housekeepers and bellmen are just as compelling as those of celebrities when seen through her lens. 

Leibovitz turned her lens behind the scenes at The Peninsula Hotels, thus immortalising the most striking Peninsula moments, combining glamour and photojournalism in her own distinctive style for a campaign in 2004 and 2009. 12 extraordinary black and white photographs will be on display in the public areas of The Peninsula Paris. 

 

While the photos displayed in the gourmet Cantonese restaurant LiLi will focus on The Peninsula Hotels Chinese heritage, the ones displayed in the Corbero Galerie will highlight The Peninsula Hotels most iconic character with Pageboys photos.


Exhibition: 13 February to 3 March

Viewing location: Galerie Corbero – restaurant LiLi at The Peninsula Paris
