If you live, and breath, and have any kind of window to the outside world, you probably know Annie Leibovitz. This is not a post to discover, but a post to celebrate photography at it’s best. A visionary that knows no limits (get a marching band for a shoot? hellz yas), one that evokes the feeling of grandeur and is not afraid to bold. I am particularly impartial to the AL/Baz Luhrmann and AL/Disney mash-ups.
You might notice some iconic pieces missing from this selection, but I really just went with what I like, so I hope you will enjoy it as well.
“In the recent book, Annie Leibowitz at Work, she discusses her equipment. She used Mamiya RZ for a long time but seems to have now moved more to Canon 1Ds. She also used Leica M6 sometimes, but rarely it seems. She started with a Minolta SRT (or was it Pentax Spotmatic, can’t remember right now), but then quite soon moved to Nikon F since that was what all photojournalists used at the time. She started with Hasselblad in medium format, for the John Lennon picture for example, but them moved to Mamiya.” Ilkka, link
