Like Lewis Carroll's Alice, I've often entertained as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

Sitting next to acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz in the abandoned Tanjong Pagar Railway Station was never one of those things.

Yet, this morning, I found myself within arm's reach of one of the most celebrated photographers of all time. Leibovitz has shot for the likes of Vanity Fair, Vogue and Rolling Stone, with subjects ranging from war refugees to celebrities to the British Royal Family.

Today, she introduced us to her exhibition in Singapore. "Women: New Portraits" consists of newly commissioned photographs, works from her 15-year-old "Women" project and iconic portraits.

Here are seven works you must see if you visit this free exhibition, which runs from Apr 29 - May 22.

3. Virginia Woolf’s writing desk

One of history’s most iconic women, author Virginia Woolf, makes an appearance (sort of) in “Women: New Portraits”.

Her writing desk, which stands in East Sussex, UK, is shown here alongside an old photograph of writer Susan Sontag, who collaborated with Leibovitz in her original “Women” series in 1999.
