What have you been doing since 2005? Perhaps it’s been a nice collection of peaks of activity in the 2008-2011 period followed by a bit of personal plateaus, but famed photographer Annie Leibovitz was hard at work taking pictures of celebrities and oddballs for her signature portraits. It’s these portraits that make up Annie Leibovitz: Portraits 2005-2016, a new book coming from Phaidon.
Annie Leibovitz: Portraits 2005-2016 is a deluxe, 316-page hardcover limited edition collection of Leibovitz’s work in the 11 years outlined in the title, including 150 pics that have never been seen or published anywhere else. James Franco and Marina Abramovic are among the subjects photographed in the book, but really this of interest to anyone who thinks of photography as an important art form.
The book comes out in October, but you can pre-order a copy of Annie Leibovitz: Portraits 2005-2016 at the Phaidon site right here, and see a brief promotional video for the book below.
