In this book Annie Leibovitz explains how her pictures are made – full stop. The documentary book was originally published in 2008, this revised and updated edition brings Leibovitz’s book back into print.
Leibovitz looks back at her career and the images that helped propel her to photographic superstardom. The subjects include photojournalism, studio work, photographing dancers and athletes, working with writers, and making the transition from shooting with film to working with digital cameras.
Leibovitz’s most famous images for example are Nixon’s resignation, John Lennon and Yoko Ono and the Apollo 17 shuttle launch. In essays that accompany each photo series, Leibovitz explains the history and circumstances behind each image.
This fascinating work will appeal to photography historians and casual observers alike.
