Anna-Lou “Annie” Leibovitz (71) is one of the world’s most renowned photographers. She is best known for her engaging portraits, particularly of celebrities, which often feature subjects in intimate settings and poses. (Leibovitz photographed John Lennon and Yoko Ono five hours before Lennon’s murder.) The Library of Congress declared her a “Living Legend,” and she is the first woman to have a feature exhibition at Washington’s National Portrait Gallery.
Quote: “Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy – your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.” ||| “When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I’d like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph.” ||| “A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”
