Annie Leibovitz part 2
Annie has had an amazing life. Full of happiness, adventure, and sorrow. She has lost so many close to her and had seen what true horrors in world exist. I found it interesting how so caught up in popular culture she was. It ran her life, actually, it washer life. When she saw what devastation war can do to people she found her self not so interested in the famous culture.
She began to reflect on her own life and longed for the family she remembers growing up with. She decided she wanted to have kids and this was a growing experience for her and it reflected in her photography.
I liked how she said at the end, "this isn't two lives, this is just one." referring to her personal and professional photography life. And that is how it should be I believe.
