Annie Leibovitz's Vanity Fair Partnerships Photo Shoot
by Alex Billington
February 4, 2009
I really love Annie Leibovitz. When I comes to photography, I'm always inspired by her work. Even after 40 years (she started shooting back in 1969), she still produces some of the most fresh and appealing photos I've ever seen. Her latest shoot, which focuses on the partnerships that made the last year an unforgettable year for movies, just hit Vanity Fair. More specifically, she looks at the actor-director team ups that defined 2008 in a feature called "Something Just Clicked". I've pulled together just a few of my favorite photos from this feature below. "In each case the chemistry was profound, the effect exponential."
There is a lot more to be found over at Vanity Fair. In addition to a few more photos, there's a little write up for each one that talks about the partnership. It's a great read and I highly suggest check it out.
While that last photo with Christopher Nolan and Heath Ledger will probably get the most acclaim, my personal favorite is the first one with Danny Boyle and Dev Patel. I just love the way the two are standing, the location, their clothes, their facial expressions, everything about it is absolute perfection. Bravo on another brilliant series, Annie Leibovitz! You may also remember the other Leibovitz photo shoots we've featured. She shot a series for Baz Luhrmann's Australia; before that it was the iconic Hitchcock Classics; and my personal favorite, on the set of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Enjoy!
