Rolling Stones Magazine <ul><li>Annie Liebovitz started working for the Rolling Stones magazine in 1970, she was the most important reporter for this magazine. The first thing she had to do was to photograph and interview Grace Slick. This photograph of Grace Slick was the cover image for the magazine, this made her famous. </li></ul><ul><li>Rolling Stone Magazine, Issue 70 </li></ul><ul><li>Artist: </li></ul><ul><li>Annie Leibovitz </li></ul><ul><li>Date: </li></ul><ul><li>Nov 12, 1970 </li></ul>
On Tour <ul><li>One year after receiving her Bachelor of fine arts degree she was then, in 1972 sent on tour with the Rolling Stones as the photographer for Truman Capote articles about their tour. </li></ul><ul><li>And in 1973 she became the official photographer for Rolling Stones. </li></ul>
<ul><li>In 1975 she was commissioned by The Rolling Stones to document their American Tour. </li></ul><ul><li>This is a blogstop dedicated to Annie Leibovitz photography of Rolling Stones Tour Of America. http://dietcokeandsympathy.blogspot.com/2009/11/tour-of-americas.html </li></ul>
John Lennon <ul><li>Only hours before John Lennon was shot, Annie Leibovitz photographed. She photographed him naked to a Yoko Ono, which was run as the cover of The Rolling Stones. </li></ul>
<ul><li>She then began work for vanityfair. </li></ul>
Annie liebovitz does lots of work for vanityfair. <ul><li>She did lots of work for it, she did hollywoood covers, lots. She did her first cover in April 1995: “Hollywood Highest- The Class Of 2000” this photography saw the lights of Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Patricia Arquette, Linda Fiorentino, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker and Uma Thurman. </li></ul>
I like the colours in this picture, the colours are light, and dark. The women in the picture are either in black or in colours such as light pick and cream. I like the difference in people, the height of the women and the way in which they are standing and the black lines down through the pictures, this breaks the pictures up makes it less of a full on picture. But the way that the women in the picture carry through and past the lines it doesn’t cut the photography up completely.
Second cover <ul><li>Her next “hollywood cover” was called “BOYS’ TOWN”. This was taking 1996. This was her second cover. This photography see’s the lights of Leonardo DiCaprio, Benicio Del Toro, Johnathon Schaech and Will Smith. </li></ul>
Again like the photograph taken for the first cover, it has been separated with black lines, but this one is less strong, the photograph has been separated into three, this obviously cuts the photograph into different images but is not as strong separation as it has edges, showing that they are different. In this photograph the models, are modelling in very manly ways, arms crossed, hands in pockets. Most of them are in shirt ties and suits, lots of them their clothing is blowing about, for example Leonardo DiCaprio’s shirt is blowing apart.
<ul><li>For the third year running Annie Leibovitz did the Hollywood cover for vanity fair. This time it is called, “THE NEXT WAVE” this photograph Cameron Diaz, Renée Zellweger, Jennifer Lopez and Jada Pinkett. </li></ul>
this photograph has a very classy feel to it, I think that would be reflecting the people in the photograph, they are all we known, we respected actresses, they are all in evening, ball dresses. The colours are not to bold but simple, some are in black but the way they are positioned makes them softer and not so strong.
<ul><li>Again Annie Liebovitz has the Hollywood cover for vanityfair, as you can probably tell she is not just doing the covers ever so often but is doing them everytime. This photograph is called “THE HOT NEXT WAVE” sounds almost like a sequel to the photograph before, “ the next wave” this photograph includes people like Natalie Portman, Djimon Hounsou, Cate Blanchett, Tobey Maguire, Claire Forlani and Rufus Sewell. </li></ul>
I like this photograph, I like how all of the all of there faces and body colour is very washed out, and for most of the models are in opposite colours, ie. Black creating a very good contrasted. But then on the other hand Cate Blanchett is not got any conrast at all, her skin is pale, her dress is pale and she has blonde hair, but I like this though, it is in contrast to the res to for the photograph. All the others have contrast and most of them are sat but she is all washed out and pale and standing, personally I see her first because of this point.
<ul><li>She was then named photographer of the year by American Society of Magazines. </li></ul>
