    A reviewer

    It was a beautiful book. and a memorable one. The photography is enjoyable, but its not a must have book for the photography lover. Its a great coffie table book, but not much else.

    A Piece of Life

    I, personally, loved this book. Annie had photographs compiled to show us LIFE, not just a compilation of her best works. This book was a document of her life over the past 15 or so years. She had photos from things she had experienced mixed among pictures she had done on commission done on commission, because all are a part of life to her, and meant something to her personally. I really recommend it to anyone with an appreciation of all things in life or even just photography in general.

    disapointed

    I was really looking forward to this new book. I have enjoyed her photography for years. I am glad I was able to look through it at Barnes and Noble before actually purchasing the book....I would have considered it a waste of money because one time through was certainly enough for me.

    A Visual Autobiography: Excerpts from an Exceptional Life

    1990 - 2005 is the period of time brilliant photographer Annie Leibovitz elects to share with us. Not only is this hefty and beautifully designed volume of her work of artistic significance, it is also one of the more understated yet tender musings on the life cycle as it affects one person. One of the most sought after portrait photographers in the world, this volume does not disappoint those whose major interest is seeing the big celebrities in the inimitable manner in which Leibovitz captures them: her portraits arrest time and allow us to linger in that sacred moment of connection between artist and model like few others can achieve. Here are photographs of Sylvester Stallone with his aging upper torso alone showing - a study in the inevitable pull of gravity that age diminishes youth images of stars like Nicole Kidman and Jack Nicholson, of political figures like Bush cum cabinet and Arnold Schwarzenegger, writers like Joan Didion, William Burroughs - the list is long. But what grounds this collection is Leibovitz' self portraits in the tub, images of her family both immediate and extended, and one of the more sensitive tributes to the much missed Susan Sontag who lived with Leibovitz through her chemotherapy and demise. Not since Don Bachardy drew the last days of his dying Christopher Isherwood has there been a more respectful yet wholly immediate audience with death. Leibovitz' writing adds to the portfolio, a bonus here as she is usually not a woman of words. But taken as a whole this is a volume of the work and mind and heart of Annie Leibovitz that is well worth its high cost: these images will stay with the viewer indelibly. Grady Harp
