American portrait photographer, artist and queer woman Annie Leibovitz is best known for her engaging portraits of celebrities. She has published a number of books. Her photographs have been exhibited widely. In 2007, a major retrospective of Leibovitz’s work was held at the Brooklyn Museum in New York. The retrospective was based on her book, ‘Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer’s Life, 1990–2005’ and included many of her professional (celebrity) photographs and numerous personal photographs of her family, children, and partner American writer Susan Sontag (1933 – 2004).
‘Looking back at my work, I see that fashion has always been there,’ Annie Leibovitz observes in the preface to Wonderland. ‘Fashion plays a part in the scheme of everything, but photography always comes first for me. The photograph is the most important part. And photography is so big that it can encompass journalism, portraiture, reportage, family photographs, fashion … My work for Vogue fueled the fire for a kind of photography that I might not otherwise have explored.’
