What is a photographers life? It’s just a life, looking through a lens

I’ve Always Loved Annie…

I’ve always loved Annie Leibovitz‘s photography. Sure, I’ve admired her rolling stone covers, and her American Music series, and even her celeb portraits. But that is a fleeting love. What I admire most are her portraits of her partner, Susan Sontag, as she lie dying. Some might say the camera was a tool Leibovitz used to distant herself from the grief of reality, but to me, it certainly shows a presence with that grief. A way of holding griefs hand through a journey. The images are haunting and raw, and those images are, more than anything else, the reason I love Annie.
