The Leibovitz legacy

The early work of Annie Leibovitz has been released to celebrate the first steps of this outstanding artist.

“The early years. 1970-1983” is packed with exciting portray shots of famed American actors, musicians and authors. However, this excellent collection of mostly black and white shots also includes intense insights of the action behind the scenes which powerfully demonstrate the straightforwardness of Leibovitz. She went on tour with the Rolling Stones and Patti Smith as well as on the 1972 presidential campaign trail to take pictures which underline her unmatched talent.

Muhammad Ali, Tom Wolfe, Bruce Springsteen and Tommy Lee Jones are just some of the big names who have been caught on camera by this ingenious photographer.

“The early years. 1970-1983” follows the release of “The Beautiful Game. Fußball in den 1970ern”, an excellent photo book paying tribute to the attitude of footballers in the 1970s when players’ appearance was rebellious but stylish. Late Ajax ace Johan Cruyff, Bayern goal machine Gerd Müller and Manchester United troublemaker George Best are depicted on and off the pitch.
