The F-Stops Here
Annie Leibovitz is arguably the most famous photographer alive. Even a passing fan knows at least a few facts about her: She shot that famous and poignant portrait of John Lennon and Yoko Ono hours before Lennons untimely and cruel death; she also took that unforgettable Vanity Fair cover photo of a pregnant Demi Moore. Without Leibovitz, Rolling Stone magazine might not have become the star-making machine it is today. Here are some things you might not know: Her real name is Anna-Lou, and she once participated in an archaeological dig of King Solomons temple. Among innumerable other awards and honors, she has been named a Living Legend by the Library of Congress. Also, the letter S seems to hold particular significance for Leibovitz: Her childrens names are Sarah, Susan, and Samuelle, and some of the most compelling photos in her latest book, A Photographers Life: 1990-2005, are of her late father Samuel and her beloved friend Susan Sontag. Books & Books and the New World Symphony present living legend Leibovitz in conversation with her friend Sharon Delano onstage tonight at 7:30 at the Lincoln Theatre.
Mon., Nov. 6, 7:30 p.m.
