Oops! I missed posting an installment of The Photography Files last week! Amazing how things can slip through the cracks, isn't it? Well, I hope to make it up to you this week with my showcase of a more modern, but no less masterful, photographer - Annie Leibovitz.
Annie Leibovitz got her start at Rolling Stone magazine, which was itself brand new at the time. She now works for Vanity Fair. Over her career she has pushed the boundaries of conventional portraiture, creating intimate, artistic photographs. She often works with celebrities and was notably the last person to photograph John Lennon before his death.
Her career is a testament to the fact that one can make a living as a photographer while still retaining artistic integrity.
