The range of works from the late 1970s until today displays a „Who-is-Who“ of the international showbusiness, of sports and music stars, with incredibly striking pictures as for instance from Scarlett Johansson, Nicole Kidman, Robert Redford via Brad Pitt and Muhammad Ali through to Miles Davis and Michael Jackson.

Born 1949 in Connecticut, Annie Leibovitz began to study painting at the San Francisco Art Intitute in the late sixties, but initially devoted her time to photography. Inspired by photographers as Robert Frank and Henri Cartier-Bresson, she not much later began to see the world „through a frame“ and committed herself to photography further on. In 1970 she published her first photos in the magazine Rolling Stone and soon advanced to the position of Senior Photographer. Two years later, she toured with the legendary Rolling Stones around the world. In 1983 Leibovitz left Rolling Stone magazine and began working with Vanity Fair. Since 1988 she is also working for the American fashion magazine Vogue.

The mystery of Annie Leibovitz‘ success is certainly her unique way of portraying. She studies her respective model thoroughly before the shooting and is thus able to get to the heart of the character of the individual in a matchless way. At times exaggerating or amusing, she carves out the characteristic features of those who are posing for her. Like nobody else, Annie Leibovitz masters the art of perfectly arranged and sometimes lavishly fitted settings, at all times matching the character of the portrayed person.
