“Annie Leibovitz At Work,” With The Queen

The New York Times features a nicely written review of Leibovitz’s latest book “Annie Leibovitz At Work,” a typically impressive book highlighting a long career perfecting the art of portraiture.  The article, for me at least, is notable for its references to her (in)famous recent shoot with Queen Elizabeth II prior to Her Majesty’s latest tour of the United States.

Many photographers can tell war stories about challenging clients.  It’s hard to imagine a more challenging circumstance than planning a formal shoot with the Queen.  For an admittedly heavily-edited, but nonetheless interesting, peek into Leibovitz’s working style, check out the recent PBS series Monarchy: The Royal Family at Work.  The series launches with that very same photo shoot.
