Annie Leibovitz

Annie Leibovitz attended the San Francisco Art Institute in the late 60s for painting, but became interested in photography. She started her career working for Rolling Stone magazine in the 70s. In 1983 she started working for Vanity Fair, and in the 80s she worked for various advertising campaigns.

She started at Rolling Stone with a position as a staff photographer, but within a year was promoted to chief photographer. Her ten years as chief photographer landed her many covers and allowed her the opportunity to go on tour with The Rolling Stones in 1975. Her trademarks are bold primary colors and unanticipated poses. She also tends to get her subjects physically involved in the photo. Her photos are eye catching, provocative, and sometimes controversial.

In 2007, Leibovitz worked with Disney to mark “the year of a million dreams.” The project put celebrities in classic Disney roles. -kh
