LONDON - Singer Adele, pop star Taylor Sweep, comedian Amy Schumer and past Olympic champion and reality star Caitlyn Jenner are among the people featured in a new exhibition by American photographer Annie Leibovitz.

"Women: New Portraits," which opened on Wednesday in East London, is a continuation of a project that began more than 15 years ago when Leibovitz published the series "Women" in 1999.

The exhibition includes photographs of artists, musicians, CEOs, politicians, writers and philanthropists. After its run in London from Jan 16. to Feb. 7, the show will travel to nine other cities around the globe over the next 12 months.
