A Photographer’s Life, 1990-2005
Annie Leibovitz

A Thousand Words – This book is filled with haunting images: Jasper Johns’ shadow stretching into a sunlit workroom; George W. Bush’s anything-but-benign benign-looking war council; the magnetic eyes of Sarah Cameron Leibovitz; and stunning portraits of Susan Sontag on the Nile, in Sarajevo and upon her deathbed. What makes these and other Annie Leibovitz photographs so absorbing? Intimacy.
