Annie Leibovitz at Work by Annie Leibovitz
Book DescriptionThe celebrated photographer Annie Leibovitz, author of the New York Times bestselling book A Photographer's Life, provides the stories, and technical description, of how some of her most famous images came to be. Starting in 1974, with her coverage of Nixon's resignation, and culminating with her controversial portraits of Queen Elizabeth II early in 2007, Leibovitz explains what professional photographers do and how they do it. The photographer in this instance is the most highly paid and prolific person in the business. Approximately 90 images are discussed in detail -- the circumstances under which they were taken, with specific technical information (what camera, what settings, what lighting, where the images appeared). The Rolling Stones' tour in 1975, the famous nude session with John Lennon and Yoko Ono hours before Lennon was killed, the American Express and Gap campaigns, Whoopi Goldberg in a bathtub of milk, Demi Moore pregnant and naked on the cover of Vanity Fair, and coverage of the couture collections in Paris with Puff Daddy and Kate Moss are among the subjects of this original and informative work. The photos and stories are arranged chronologically, moving from film to digital. Leibovitz's fans and lovers of great photography will find her stories of how one learns to see -- and then how to photograph -- inspiring.

The author visited the places that she could explore with no agenda. She wasn't on assignment. She chose the subjects simply because they meant something to her. This title covers the houses of Virginia Woolf and Darwin in the English countryside and Freud's final home, in London, but most of the places on the lists were American.

Author Biography - Annie Leibovitz
Annie Leibovitz's witty, powerful portraits have appeared on magazine covers for more than twenty-five years. Her astute observations of American popular culture appeared first in her legendary work for Rolling Stone in the 1970s and have continued through her long affiliation with Vanity Fair and Vogue. Leibovitz has worked with several artistic organizations, including American Ballet Theatre and the Mark Morris Dance Group, and with Mikhail Baryshnikov's dance projects. Women, a book of Leibovitz's portraits, with an essay by Susan Sontag, was published in 1999. Her 2006 book, A Photographer's Life, was a New York Times bestseller. Leibovitz is the recipient of many honours, including both first and second place in the American Society of Magazine Editors' recent compilation of the 40 top magazine covers of the past 40 years. Leibovitz was designated a Living Legend by the Library of Congress in 2000 and an Officier in the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2002. Smithsonian Magazine named her one of the 35 Innovators of Our Time in November 2005.
