Annie Leibovitz, our most celebrated living photographer, explains how her pictures are made.

Leibovitz addresses young photographers and readers interested in what photographers do, but any reader interested in contemporary history will be fascinated by her account of one of the richest bodies of work in the photographic canon.

The subjects include photojournalism, studio work, photographing dancers and athletes, working with writers, and making the transition from shooting with film to working with digital cameras. Originally published in 2008, this revised and updated edition brings Leibovitz's bestselling book back into print.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Whether she's photographing the famous and powerful - or simply the woman next door - Annie always captures something unexpected and deeply personal.'- Oprah Winfrey

'Getting your photograph taken by Annie is one of the great totems of success in America.' - Graydon Carter, former editor-in-chief, Vanity Fair

'Annie Leibovitz is one of the most aesthetically gifted photographers alive.' -The Guardian

'Engaging, informative, intimate and beautiful, this revised and updated edition of the original, published in 2008, not only reveals the photographer, her work and her practice, it also reveals her as a person. Endlessly fascinating, the book is dense with information and lush with pictures, the quality of which is unmatched. We learn about her technique and approach, her reflections and advice, given with warmth and engagement.' - Black + White Photography

'In her own words, Annie Leibovitz provides a glimpse behind the scenes of some of her most famous photographs, from early snaps for Rolling Stone to portraits of Her Majesty The Queen, a naked and pregnant Demi Moore to the last ever photograph taken of John Lennon, nude and curled around Yoko Ono. This updated version of the 2008 original features a new chapter on Leibovitz's most recent work.' - LuxuryLondon.co.uk

'We're all familiar with photographer Annie Leibovitz's most iconic images... But while her pictures are mostly synonymous with the A-list, Annie Leibovitz At Work delves into a portfolio that unites technical brilliance with unerring hard work and perseverance... These photos provide the backstory to what makes Leibovitz tick, whilst exploring her refusal to be pigeon-holed as yet another celebrity snapper. It's a valuable lesson in how to turn something you love into something that'll feed your soul ? and your work ethic.' - Emerald Street
