Born on this day, Annie Leibovitz has photographed practically every celebrity, rock star and politician over the past four decades.
She started shooting for Rolling Stone magazine in 1970 while still a student at the San Francisco Art Institute. She went on to work for Vanity Fair and Vogue and has released several books of her photographs.
Some of her most iconic images include a naked John Lennon curled around clothed Yoko Ono and Demi Moore pregnant on the cover of Vanity Fair.
“When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I’d like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph.” – Annie Leibovitz
