"Annie Leibovitz" (video review)

Annie Leibovitz: Life through a Lens

Directed by Barbara Leibovitz

Following her to different photo shoots as she goes about her work, this film documents the life and profound photography of Annie Leibovitz. Annie describes her early childhood life and family, relating how she first became interested in photography. After taking a photography class in college, Annie’s childhood interest blossomed, and from there she began her career with the Rolling Stone magazine. While she built up a reputation for being the best photographer in Rock n’ Roll, Annie left after 13 years to work for the magazine Vanity Fair, which allowed her a wider range of subjects. From her personal photos that help tell the story of her life, to her professional ones that push the boundaries of photography, the film provides an excellent illustration of Annie’s oeuvre and absolute passion for her medium.

This video is among the many available to borrow from Imageworks in the Art, Architecture and Engineering Library. Search for videos in Mirlyn or in our video database.
