That American genius, Annie Leibovitz, is at the center of this
excellent documentary that was shown on a local cable channel recently.
As a photographer, from her beginning in Rolling Stone, she has given
us a chance to see people as she captured them for posterity. Most of
her subjects happen to be important figures from society, politics, and
show business. One of the most vivid pictures she took involve John
Lennon and Yoko Ono in the famous shot where the late Beatle is seen
naked, embracing Ms. Ono.
The documentary goes to give us a glimpse at the artist as she works
and lives. There are many notable people that are interviewed who give
their own impression of this amazing photographer in candid ways as
they perceived her.
Ms. Leivobitz has known tragedy in her own life, as she saw her long
time friend Susan Sontag battle the illness that ultimately took her
life. She was totally devastated by the experience, but what's more
interesting is that she had her young daughters to help her through the
pain of her loss.
Don't miss it!
