PRIVATE20 019Annie Leibowitz (b. 1949) is considered by many one of America’s better known portrait photographers, but to some press reports her star is waning. Her career started when she worked for Rolling Stone Magazine in the early seventies. She photographed major music stars, like John Lennon, and became the staff photographer at Rolling Stone in 1973.  She is best known for her satirical type portraits, and the photograph of the record cover (shown above) of singer Peter Wolf dating 1987 is certainly one of those. In 1983, Leibowitz switched from Rolling Stone Magazine to Vanity Fair. Currently, she works freelance and is engaged in various art projects.
