"Neverland Lost – A Portrait of Michael Jackson" began when on assignment from Conde Nast, Leutwyler was given the opportunity to photograph the objects from Jackson's estate that were scheduled to be auctioned in April 2009. The auction was subsequently cancelled, leaving Leutwyler's work the primary documentation of this collection of objects that evoke both the mundane and mythical moments of the iconic entertainer's life. The project evolved into a book published by Steidl in June 2010, with a gallery exhibition at Los Angeles' M+B gallery last summer. http://www.henryleutwyler.com/
