Recently I was reading a blog posting about how Annie Leibovitz is in financial trouble, something like she owes 24 million. Now mind you, I wouldn’t wish this upon my worse enemy and I hope she can pull out of this mess.
I proceeded to leave a comment that I’m not a fan of her work, it’s a personal opinion, but I find her work uninspired and unoriginal. I wasn’t the only one leaving comments like this, but for some reason I got a ton of replies saying that I don’t know anything about what she does. Now mind you, I did not say that I thought I was better then her, merely that I think there are a lot of other photographers out there who deserve more praise. From what I’ve seen of her work (and I even stated that maybe I hadn’t seen enought of her work and that maybe someone could show me some of her work that may enlighten me) I find it to be nothing special.
I have always said, if I’m wrong then show me why. Show me the proof
I stopped replying to that other blog because it was getting me no where
If you are a fan of Ms Leibovitz, please post a link to some of her work that will make me say “Dammn that’s great work” till then I will admire the work of Steiglitz, Stiechen, Breeson, Newton, Avedon, Man Ray, etc….
