Annie Leibovitz: Too many stars in her eyes

It's about time some one told it like it was

'A photograph is not an opinion. Or is it?' asked Sontag in the introduction to Leibovitz's Women, lightly implying that the photographer might have some opinions of her own. If she does, they are not discernible in the portraits for which she is famous. George W Bush, the exhausted surgeon in Sarajevo, Scarlett Johansson in gold knickers: they are all one in Leibovitz's drastically neutral view of human nature. All the energy spent on celebrating the outward appearance of her subjects leaves little for what goes on inside

[From Too many stars in her eyes]

It's all about self promotion really
