Annie Leibovitiz is best known as creating stylized portraits of the most recognizable faces of the last forty years. In 2014 Taschen publisher’s created a monograph of Annie’s images in a signed collector’s edition Sumo book. Her pictures are recognizable for their bright colors, intense lighting, and above all, for unique and surprising poses. In magazine spreads and advertising campaigns, Leibovitz has demonstrated that she is a master of projecting the popular culture of our time. Leibovitz's early photographs were in black and white. When Rolling Stone began printing in color in 1974, she started using color film, staging elaborate scenes for the magazine's covers. She has explained, "When I was in school, I wasn't taught anything about lighting, only black-and-white. So I had to learn about color myself." Nonetheless, Leibovitz quickly developed her signature style, notable for lambent color. From the viscerally intimate reportage and extending through the stylized portraiture work for Vanity Fair and Vogue, her pictures are at once intimate and iconic, wide-ranging stylistically, and also uniquely hers.
