as some of you may know, i don't have cable. and now that the snow and cold are starting to kick in, my search for things to watch is in overdrive. this weekend i managed to watch quite a few movies, but the one in particular that was of impact was the above: Annie Leibovitz: Life Through a Lens. it was 99 cents on itunes to rent. considering, i think that's the best 99 cents i ever did spend.
to say that she is influential is a vast understatement. Annie started out being the photo journalist for Rolling Stone magazine. Bruce Springsteen, Micheal Jackson, The Rolling Stones, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, John Lennon, etc. and this gained her super stardom, in her own right, on her own terms.
i know everyone and their dog has itunes. and what is a dollar these days? my Mom was the one who initially got me into her. and mostly because of the fact that she used to buy Rolling Stone magazine constantly. and that there was always Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Ricki Lee Jones, Elton John, Melanie, etc. playing on the record player while i was still in diapers.
here is some of my favorite pictures by Annie Leibovitz. drool and MUCH respect. some of the most stunning are the ones of her closest family members and loved ones. i strongly suggest going out and picking up one of her books.
