"This beautiful book of private and commercial photographs by award-winning photographer Annie Leibovitz began as two separate books which would attempt to chronicle the work Leibovitz was doing between the years 1990 and 2005. Instead, as Leibovitz explains in her introduction, she could not separate her personal self from her working self and so decided to unite the two. Therefore, this massive collection tells Leibovitz story from all vantage points. Her family life with parents, siblings, nieces and nephews make up part of the photographic essay. Her romantic and working partnership with author Susan Sontag is told here. Her successful celebrity portraits are also featured." Resplendent with beautifully produced photographs by one of Americas most popular photographers, and signed large and bold makes this a fantastic collectible edition. 472 pages.
