Review-A-Day

"Annie Leibovitz is a very modest photographer. Her skills are far exceeded by her access, her expenses, and the very confined 'curiosity' of her employers. Alas, when she takes her 'purely personal pictures,' despite the welcome abandonment of finesse, the earlier problems remain." David Thomson, The New Republic (read the entire New Republic review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"I don't have two lives," Annie Leibovitz writes in the Introduction to this collection of her work from 1990–2005. "This is one life, and the personal pictures and the assignment work are all part of it." Portraits of well-known figures — Johnny Cash, Nicole Kidman, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Keith Richards, Michael Jordan, Joan Didion, R2-D2, Patti Smith, Nelson Mandela, Jack Nicholson, William Burroughs, George W. Bush with members of his Cabinet — appear alongside pictures of Leibovitz's family and friends, reportage from the siege of Sarajevo in the early Nineties, and landscapes made even more indelible through Leibovitz's discerning eye. The images form a narrative rich in contrasts and continuities: The photographer has a long relationship that ends with illness and death. She chronicles the celebrations and heartbreaks of her large and robust family. She has children of her own. All the while she is working, and the public work resonates with the themes of her life.

Review:

"This book shows an artist at full strength, having grown both technically and aesthetically, and showing a perception paralleled by few other photographers working today." USA Today

Synopsis:

This inspired and original photographic narrative is composed from Liebovitz's personal pictures and her work as a professional photographer. 300 Photos.
