Annie Leibovitz was born October 2, 1949 and is 67 years old at this point.
Her style is dramatic images of celebrities. She takes pictures people like Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, and more.
She sometimes uses a strobe light to make the background flat, so the image looks close to one dimensional.
Leibovitz was the first woman to hold an exhibition at London's National Portrait Gallery.
She uses an 35mm lens, that's her favorite to use.
She only uses one light and her pictures are always darker and more mysterious in a way.
The photographers; Richard Avedon and Henri Cartier-Bresson were her influences.
She had photographed John Lennon on the day he was killed, which is very morbid, yet intriguing.
I love watching movies and listening to music, celebrities. So, I picked Leibovitz because she photographs celebrities. Her work is very different and I love it.
