Annie Leibovitz is one of the most influential photographers of our time. Her career spans nearly five decades, starting in the 1970s when she was a widely acclaimed photographer at Rolling Stone. At Vanity Fair and Vogue and in independent projects, Leibovitz expanded her repertoire as a portraitist with a distinctive style. Her many honors include being designated a Living Legend by the Library of Congress, and her work is exhibited at museums around the world. Alexandra Fuller is a prize-winning writer, whose memoirs Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight and Leaving Before the Rains Come have met with public and critical acclaim. Her articles and reviews have appeared in numerous publications, including The New Yorker, Granta, The New York Times, Guardian, and National Geographic.


Whether she's photographing the famous and powerful - or simply the woman next door - Annie always captures something unexpected and deeply personal. --Oprah Winfrey Getting your photograph taken by Annie is one of the great totems of success in America. --Graydon Carter, Editor-in-chief, Vanity Fair She's a poet. --Robert Wilson Annie Leibovitz is one of the most aesthetically gifted photographers alive. --Guardian Her pictures are consistently great. They unerringly capture the zeitgeist. --Paul Roth, director of the Ryerson Image Centre Leibovitz is not simply among our foremost image-makers. She has essentially created a new form of portraiture for our time. --Sherri Geldin, director of the Wexner Center for the Arts [Leibovitz] has a way of turning the zeitgeist into works of high art. --UrbanDaddy With more than 150 pop culture favorite subjects, this volume of striking portraits documents contemporary culture with an artist's eye and wit. --Society Diaries .. .The latest book to commemorate her astonishing career. --Publishers Weekly Iconic is an overused word, but it feels apt when describing the globally recognisable, influential, and compelling images of photographer Annie Leibovitz. Now, in a luxurious new compendium, her last decade of work is showcased in all its glory... The book is a who's who of the relevant and revered. --Red A true trailblazer. --Glamour Formidable in its breadth, and its weight... This is Leibovitz in excelsis: movie and music stars, politicians and power brokers; the inevitable nudes - Lady Gaga splayed over a bed, and a rather simian Jeff Koons admiring himself in a mirror; as well as a panoply of less familiar characters and still-lifes from her Pilgrimage series of objects and places with historical resonance. It is a record not only of Leibovitz's life as a photographer over 11 years, but of American life... In her new book, the Hollywood glitz gives way to more contemplative pictures of artists, painters and musicians. --Daily Telegraph Magazine [Leibovitz] gets to photograph everyone. And we mean everyone... Here are the great and the good... These portraits are acts of collaboration. She and her subject are telling us stories. --The Herald Breathtaking... Leibovitz has produced compelling images that are a subtle combination of staged and relaxed. --The Lady The extraordinary work of one of the most celebrated celebrity photographer of all time... Uniquely captivating photos. --Parade Online In this new collection, Leibovitz has captured the most influential and compelling figures of the last decade in the style that has also made her one of the most influential photographers of our time. --Waterfront Annie Leibovitz's pictures are pure entertainment. --The Jewish Chronicle Witty, personal and always unique, Leibovitz has a career of capturing iconic people... A majestic who's who of the last decade. --The Essential Journal Not only are the photos in Leibovitz's book of portraits stupendous among themselves but so is the book itself. It is no exaggeration to say that the finest portrait photographer of our time is all of that because she is a wise artist first and a photographer second. --Buffalo News She's a poet. --Robert Wilson Annie Leibovitz is one of the most aesthetically gifted photographers alive. --Guardian Her pictures are consistently great. They unerringly capture the zeitgeist. --Paul Roth, director of the Ryerson Image Centre Leibovitz is not simply among our foremost image-makers. She has essentially created a new form of portraiture for our time. --Sherri Geldin, director of the Wexner Center for the Arts [Leibovitz] has a way of turning the zeitgeist into works of high art. --UrbanDaddy
