Now That’s It’s In Our Hands – Annie Leibowitz At Work : Instant Classic!

OK, we gave away a copy of the Annie Leibowitz At Work book this week, and we had never seen it, but had high hopes.
Well, that particular gamble paid off handsomely.
Returning from the trip to Paris with all of it’s photo-goodness, the stack of books waiting on our door step, felt like Christmas morning.
[photopress:annieredux.jpg,full,alignright] And the Annie Leibowitz book topped the stack and won our hearts.
This is one excellent book, that gives you an insight into the most successful photographer working today. You’ve heard the stories, you’ve seen the work. This 237 pg. hardbound book breaks it down behind the scenes on so many levels.
Not only does she go through shooting sessions, and the process of getting ready, set, go, but she answers all of the questions you always wanted to ask her. Or ask ANY working photographer.
She discusses the gear she has used and grown with, discusses working with assistants, digital photography vs. film and then goes into the Ten Questions she is asked the most starting with ” What advice do you have for a young photographer who is just starting out ?”

No matter what your thoughts are on her work, you really should buy this book. It is an insight into a photographers head, that you rarely see realized in print.

Plus the printing is beautiful. Random House did themselves proud.
So if you are looking for a suggestion to give someone for your next gift, or you just can’t wait, it’s a short stroke purchase (inexpensive), for a book that will become a classic.

And because of that, we are doing Annie Leibowitz At Work: Redux as our weekly giveaway, this week also.

Subscribe to the NEWSLETTER and you’ll be eligible for a free copy of this book, shipped anywhere in the world.

Due to our busy sched on the road, we hadn’t mentioned the winner of the Saul Leiter: Early Color book, last week. Congratulations to Charlene H., Uncasville, CT! This book will be shipped in a very special dark beige wrapping material, and presented at the shipping address, for his approval.
OK, fine. It’s coming from Amazon through the mail.

And we now return to our regularly scheduled program:
The last gallery we visited in Paris, yielded photographic fruit that we are so fortunate not to have missed.
More after some coffee.
