At only 21, Annie Leibovitz is hired by Rolling Stones magazine and soon becomes the major photographer of the 1970s’ musical icons. At the time, she develops her signature style: impactful portraits in vivid tones or powerful black and whites, with unusual poses. The most representative image of that period is her depiction of Yoko Ono and John Lennon on their bed: her, entirely clothed, him naked in a foetal position, embracing his lover - a combination of tender intimacy and extravagance. In 1983, the American photographer leaves Rolling Stones for Vanity Fair where she captures Hollywood celebrities and socialites in sophisticated decors such as her Disney series featuring such personalities as Beyonce incarnating Alice in Wonderland or Scarlett Johansson as Cinderella. She nonetheless does not get rid of her taste for the singular and provocation with her naked pregnant Demi Moore or the controversial semi-nude portrait of Miley Cyrus when she hadn’t yet become master es scandal. Where some photographers are eager to reveal the humanity of their famous sitters, Annie Leibovitz on the contrary, has always played with their glamorous status, enhancing their fantasy-like auras but when it came to her personal life, she dared to publish a raw photograph of her lover, author, Susan Sontag - ‘Words like « companion » and « partner » were not in our vocabulary. We were two people who helped each other through our lives. The closest word is still « friend »’ - ravaged by cancer, on her deathbed.
