Annie Leibovitz is a famous photographer who specialises in portraits. She is renowned for her work in Vogue, Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair magazines.

She has been designated a Living Legend by the Library of Congress in 2000 and an Officier in the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres n 2002.

The author explains how professional photographers get the shots they do.  She discusses 90 images in details, explaining the circumstances, technical information that include the famous nude session with John Lennon and Yoko Ono hours before his assassination, Whoopi Goldberg in a tub of milk, the Vanity Fair cover of a pregnant Demi Moore, couture shows coverage of Paris with Kate Moss and others.

The thread that weaves itself through the book is Leibovitz’s love of the art and her technical abilities.
