An inspired and original photographic narrative composed from Annie Leibovitz's personal pictures and her work as a professional photographer.
One of the most celebrated photographers of our time presents a selection of her work of the last fifteen years. The material documents the arc of Leibovitzs relationship with her companion, Susan Sontag, who died in 2004; the birth of her three daughters; and many events involving her large and robust family, including the death of her father. The book is permeated with strong emotions. Leibovitzs passion for her family and friends is part of a larger passion that extends to the subjects of her professional work, and the two worlds meet thematically. Portraits of public figures include the pregnant Demi Moore, Nelson Mandela in Soweto, Jack Nicholson on Mulholland Drive, Bill Clinton in the Oval Office, William Burroughs in Kansas, and Agnes Martin in Taos.
Over 300 photographs accompany by an essay by Leibovitz that discusses the circumstances under which the work was made, both technically and logistically, and her relationships with many of the subjects.
