I haven also been exploring photographer Annie Leibovitz, her work is very unlike many other photographers I have been exploring. Her photography explores commercialisation and portrays the ‘stereotypical beautiful woman’. Although some of her work may be interesting and beautiful, I feel that I would not agree with portraying the messages of commercialisation and typical beauty as she does, not to say that her messages are wrong, but just not some that I would attempt to portray through my own work.
Photographer. Born Anna-Lou Leibovitz, on October 2, 1949, in Waterbury, Connecticut. She was one of the six children born to Sam, an Air Force lieutenant, and Marilyn Leibovitz, a modern dance instructor. In 1967, Leibovitz enrolled at the San Francisco Art Institute, where (although initially studying painting) she developed a love for photography.
Photographer Annie Leibovitz was born October 2, 1949, in Waterbury, Connecticut. In 1970 she took a job at Rolling Stone magazine. In 1983 she began working for the entertainment magazine Vanity Fair. During the late 1980s, Leibovitz started to work on a number of high-profile advertising campaigns. From the 1990s to the present, she has been publishing and exhibiting her work. While with Rolling Stone, Leibovitz developed her trademark technique, which involved the use of bold primary colors and surprising poses.
I think her photographs portray clear images of beauty, and are absolutely beautiful however, they do not necessarily influence individuals positively:
