Annie Leibovitz is an American portrait photographer. She photographed John Lennon on the day he was assassinated, and her work has been used on numerous album covers and magazines.
She became the first woman to hold an exhibition at Washington’s National Portrait Gallery in 1991.
Leibovitz is much influenced by Richard Avedon, and his ‘personal reportage’, developing close rapport with her subjects.
