Happy Birthday Annie
"Sometimes I enjoy just photographing the surface because I think it can be as revealing as going to the heart of the matter." - Annie Leibovitz
American photographer Annie Leibovitz celebrates her 64th birthday today. She was born on October 2, 1949, in Waterbury, CT.
Leibovitz began her inspiring career working on commission for Rolling Stone while still in school in the early 1970s.
In 1983, Leibovitz joined the staff at Vanity Fair, and in 1998, she also began working for Vogue, encouraging her many celebrity subjects to choose poses revealing the intimate, playful, and expressive aspects of their personalities.
An artist with an astounding career, she was the first woman to receive a solo exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
Leibovitz currently lives and works in New York.
