Annie Leibovitz is arguably most famous living photographer, and one of my personal favorites. Her body of work is vast and interesting. One piece that always stood out to me is her infamous photograph of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. I recently paid homage to that very photo in a portrait session with Lindsey and Terry a few months ago.
Lindsey and Terry went to see her speak at the Corcoran Gallery of Art last night. She was promoting her new book “Annie Liebovitz At Work“.
This morning I receive the following email…
So…guess who gave you props on your work? Drumroll please…Annie Liebovitz. We showed her your photos of us last night after the lecture and she chuckled and said that they were great and to tell you that they’re great. No joke. Terry has documented proof. You’ve gotten an official shout out from a photography god.
About an hour later I receive an email from Terry with the following photo attached…

Needless to say the email + photo from Lindsey and Terry made my day!
I stumbled across an interesting and tastefully presented piece on Ansel Adams over at the New York Times website. The piece consists of nine photographs with accompanying audio by Adams’s former assistant, Andrea G. Stillman.
Personally, I never grow tired of viewing Adams’s work or learning something new about him. He was one of the greatest photographers to walk the earth.
