First started in 1999 as a project to capture inspirational women alongside her late partner Susan Sontag, the project has been revived as Women: New Portraits, and is showing at Wapping Hydraulic Power Station.

For this next chapter Leibovitz has been helped by famed feminist, activist and journalist Gloria Steinem to capture the eclectic and interesting collection of women.
