A life in pictures
11 March 2009 | by jotix100See all my reviews

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!
