Annie Leibovitz is perhaps the most well-known and well-respected living American photographer. Her career spans for more than four decades, starting at Rolling Stone, and then moving on to Vanity Fair, Vogue, and you name it. Her style and subject matter is as expansive as her career, from iconic editorial celebrity shoots the likes of John Lennon and Yoko Ono to her more recent and deeply personal American landscapes in her book “Pilgrimage.”
To condense her lifetime of work into a handful of articles certainly won’t do her justice. Instead, we will focus on just her fashion photography that’s come to define the look of Vanity Fair. In this month long (probably longer) exposé, we will scratch the surface of Annie’s work, the craft behind her photographs, and how to shoot models in her style.
