Andy Warhol snapped this photo of Annie Leibovitz in 1986, capturing the lauded female photographer mid-sentence, with her hair swept in all directions.

For those who are familiar with Warhol, it should come as no surprise that he would catch Leibovitz in an unrehearsed moment. In fact, ten years earlier, Leibovitz showed the Pop Art King doing what he did best: observing others.  This studio shoot gives a more polished side to Warhol, but both images show the unique style of each artist nonetheless.
