Annie Leibovitz, Johnny Cash and Rosanne Cash, Hiltons, Virginia, 2001
Annie Leibovitz, Iggy Pop, Miami, Florida, 2000
There was a great piece on NPR yesterday about the photographer Herman Leonard (below). He was talking about how he had to bathe his film in mercury before he went into the smoky clubs, so it would be sensitive enough to pick up the image with the low light level. Photographers like Leibovitz today with all their gadgets have it easy, in comparison.

Reason: labels added, for Amy
those crazy norwegians,that photo is real by the way...
Yeah I know. I hadn't looked up the pic for myself because I didn't really want to see it. My favorite part of the story is how one of them supposedly took a piece of his skull and made it into a necklace.
Flame away but I like Herb Ritts work and of course Anton Corbijn's.
