Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
The photographs by Annie Leibovitz in Women, taken especially for the book, encompass a broad spectrum of subjects: a rap artist, an astronaut, two Supreme Court justices, farmers, coal miners, movie stars, showgirls, rodeo riders, socialites, reporters, dancers, a maid, a general, a surgeon, the First Lady of the United States, the secretary of state, a senator, rock stars, prostitutes, teachers, singers, athletes, poets, writers, painters, musicians, theater directors, political activists, performance artists, and businesswomen. "Each of these pictures must stand on its own," Susan Sontag writes in the essay that accompanies the portraits. "But the ensemble says, So this what women are now--as different, as varied, as heroic, as forlorn, as conventional, as unconventional as this."
"The haunting images in this mesmerizing book show women in such astonishing variety that no cliche or generalization about the sex will ever again suffice."
Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times, 11/30/1999Review:
"With her always penetrating and frequently ironic eye, Leibovitz has taken a haunting image of Joni Mitchell beside a fountain in an eerie garden setting and a shot of a haunted Nicole Kidman who looks like she has just seen Stanley Kubrick's ghost."
David Kaufman, New York Times, 12/12/1999
