Biography

Annie Leibovitz is heralded as one of the greatest portrait photographers of her time, having captured images of some of the most influential figures of the past 40 years for commercial and editorial assignments. Trademarks of Leibovitz’s style are bold contrasts and dramatic poses, and she cites photographers Robert Frank and Richard Avedon as influences. Perhaps her most famous image is the raw, intimate portrait of a nude John Lennon clinging to wife Yoko Ono, taken for the cover of Rolling Stone only hours before Lennon was killed.
