Annie Leibovitz was born on October 2, 1949 and was the third of six children in her family. Even at a young age Annie loved to take pictures. She has worked for various magazines including the, Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair. She has also written a book called, Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer's Life. She has photographed many celebrities including, John Lennon, Miley Cyrus, Queen Elizabeth II, Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, and many more. Annie has opened a wide new world for photography. Her abstract work is portrayed beautifully and her photos are magnificent. She is a creative woman with the way she captures her shots of people, and in conclusion Annie Leibovitz is a very accomplished photographer. The photo i have added as my favorite is of John Lennon and Yoko Ono on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. It is ironic almost because she was the last one to professionally photograph Lennon because he was shot and killed 5 hours later.
