Wisdom: Andrew Zuckerman

A bunch of pictures and banners are in the Alan Lambert Galleria at Brookfield Place from July 11 to August 5, 2011 - the works are a collection of large format photographs titled Wisdom: Andrew Zuckerman and also features quotes from "leaders and visionaries from the world of politics, science, sports, and the arts."
See more wisdom after the jump.

Don't take yourself seriously.
When you teach you learn.

The Brookfield website has this to say about the exhibition. 

WISDOM: Portraits by Andrew Zuckerman

Brookfield Place will host the Canadian premiere exhibit of ‘WISDOM’, an extraordinary collection of photographs and interviews that capture the combined wisdom of legendary leaders and celebrities including Nelson Mandela, Ted Kennedy, Willie Nelson, Billie Jean King, Check Close and others. Visitors can walk amongst the 50 large format photographs and view quotes in which the subjects share lessons learned from a lifetime of work in such diverse fields as politics, sports, science, art, film, architecture and music. The exhibit is part of a project conceived and created by award-winning photographer and filmmaker Andrew Zuckerman, who was inspired by the idea that one of the greatest gifts a generation can give to the next is the wisdom gained from experience. The project was produced in cooperation with Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who is also one of the subjects in the exhibit. Zuckerman met with his subjects in the summer of 2007, traveling with his creative team to four continents to interview and photograph fifty luminaries from all walks of life. All of the portraits are shot against the same blank white backdrop, allowing each face to tell its own story.

Wherever you are, be there.
Nobody can teach me who I am.
