Annie Leibovitz

Annie Leibovitz

Annie Leibovitz was born Anna-Lou Leibovitz in 1949. She is known as being one of America's best portrait photographers.

Her career life:

Most people, including me, know of her because of her work with Disney. Leibovitz creates elaborate, movie-like scenes with her portraits, which is why I love her work. Her photographs are over the top, dramatic, have high contrast, and are attention grabbing. Some of her photographs even have a dream-like quality to them. Leibovitz's portrait work is very original and uniquely hers. She has become one of America's best and well-known photographers. This is a very inspiring photographer.

Surprisingly, Annie Leibovitz does not have a website of her own.

AL Beauty and the Beast

The photograph I chose was one out of a series Annie Leibovitz did with Drew Barrymore as Beauty and the Beast. I love Disney, fairytales, and Beauty and the Beast is one of my all time favorites. This photograph, along with the rest of the series, is so elegantly done She has a way of capturing a fairytale into a real life setting. It is definitely Leibovitz's style.
