Art & Popular Culture

I haven’t really gotten to blog about a photography yet for this class and thought it was about time. I have chosen to talk about Annie Leibovitz. She is one of my favorite photographers and inspires me every time I look at her work. Her lighting is absolutely breathtaking, which is something very important for me. It has reached the point where I know her work just by looking at it, she has a very stylized way of photographing.

Annie is among some of the most well known photographers. Even if you haven’t heard her name you have seen her images. Annie began her magazine editorial career at Rolling Stone magazine in 1970, since then Annie has been working for Vanity Fair and also Vogue magazine. In addition to this, Annie has done advertising work. She has had the opportunity to photography many actors, rock stars, and influential people, including John Lennon just hours before he was murdered with Yoko Ono, Demi Moore pregnant, and she was the first to photograph baby Suri. Not only is Annie Leibovitz part of Pop Culture, she is recording it through photographs.
