I photographed Annie Leibovitz and Didn't even know It

March 12, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Right then- so I was just looking through my Lightroom catalog for an old Iphone photo and I found these images from this past last summer when on one day on the the way to work, after parking the car, I came across this monster photo production where these guys had the whole kit and kaboodle and were photoing some like J Crew action or some crap and I just figured to make some Iphone snaps of it because. Long story short- just yesterday I was watching an Annie Leibovitz presentation about her book "Pilgrimage" and therefore just today when I saw these pictures I was certain that it was her, check it out, you tell me: this is what I first saw

the whole shebang: fans, diffusers, sunshade for camera-

closer crop, it's just an Iphone4, wish I could do you better- 

switched it out of Hipstamatic mode and to normal camera- and there she is for the first time but wait till you see this next one: 

see what I mean- that's her on the right. So I zoomed to 100 percent: 

I don't know if it would stand up in court but it certainly looks like her. This is her: and here's one in profile if that helps-

I think I remember asking one of the lackeys what the job was, but there's nothing there to speak on now. So even though that guy has the camera I figure she's directing the shoot. And her hair is tied back and a little healthier then it would seem from the pictures available of her on the interwebs, but I swear it's her. So what do you think? Is it her or is it just a stylist? I know this kind of stuff doesn't matter much, and I'm sure you'll all find something much more pertinent to your present learning curve in the next webpage that you end up at, I'm just liking to think that I actually was this close to one of the most celebrated photographers in contemporary American photography. And didn't even know it. :-) So the lesson here is?- do your homework, so that at least you can know if you are in the presence of greatness that then you are in the presence of greatness. 

Last one- I think I was most taken by that AC's awesome monitor hood. But here she is again telling them all to do something awesome so she can get out of debt, eh? So whattaya think, is it her?

Oh and here's a link to that talk I was watching yesterday on the youtube:
