Annie Leibovitz

We watched the second half of the Annie Leibovitz movie in class tonight.  After working for Rolling Stone, Annie moved on and worked for Vanity Fair and Vogue Magazine.   The film described the relationship that Leibovitz had with her close friend Susan Sontag, and many of the people interviewed i the film said they they complimented each other very well.  Susan knew how to describe Annie’s work , she was the more verbal person, while Annie was the more Visual f the two.

It also talked about the deaths of her father and her friend Susan.  It was a very somber part of the film and there were parts where Annie would break into tears.  Photography is a way that Annie escapes from the sadness.  The film included more amazinf images that Annie took.  I have to admit that I wasn’t really aware of who Annie Leibovitz was, but now after watching this film, I can say that she is one the greatest photographers I have ever seen.  I only hope to be as successful and happy with my career as Annie Leibovitz is.
