Today, the Zurich-based nonprofit LUMA Foundation announced that they will be housing the archives of renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz.

The organization is planning a number of major projects dedicated to the trove, the first being “Annie Leibovitz Archive Project #1: The Early Years,” an exhibition that will be on view between May 27 and September 24 at the foundation’s Parc des Ateliers outpost in Arles, France. The show will trace Leibovitz’s early career, from 1968 to 1982, and will include early portraits she did as a Rolling Stone photographer.

The exhibition “traces her development as a young artist, and follows her successes in the 1970s as she documented the culture that defined this pivotal era,” the LUMA Foundation said today in a statement.
