Annie Leibovitz is one of America’s best portrait photographers, who is known for her photographs of today’s celebrities in such magazines as Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and her in own collection for her show and published books. Her trademark technique involves the use of bold colours, odd poses, fantasy themes and a close collaboration between her and her subject.

If you get the chance check out her books ‘Photographs: Annie Leibovitz 1970-1990’, Olympic Portraits (1991) and Women (1999) do so, have a look at something that we are quite familiar with currently, the celebrity, but through the lense of the amazing Annie Leibivtiz.
