About this title

Synopsis:

One of today's most influential and admired artists, renowned for her vivid and distinctive style, Annie Leibovitz is an American original. This work includes photos of Bruce Springsteen, Jody Foster, Michael Jackson, Miles Davis, Greg Louganis, Mikhail Baryshnikov, and many more. 236 photographs, 81 in full color.

From Library Journal:

Star photographer of Rolling Stone , Vanity Fair , and numerous other magazines since the Seventies, Leibovitz here offers a retrospective that shows how far she has come. The early photographs have a documentary feel, even recalling Evans's Depression-era photography or Arbus's sense of the grotesque. They can seem cluttered, but in fact present the right amount of information without feeling posed. The later photographs are cleaner, clearer, and often in color. Props are used effectively to extend the subject's image: Keith Haring painted with the black-and-white abstractions he favored; Christo wrapped; David Lynch with turtleneck up to the hairline; Sting caked in mud: Clint Eastwood tied up; a shot of Pele's soccer-battered feet. These photographs simultaneously exploit each luminary's image while allowing them a certain privacy because they are playing along with the photographer. Ingrid Sishchy's introductory interview gets to the heart of Leibovitz's working methods and concerns. A book for popular collections that also offers cultural insight.
