John Keatley photographs Annie Leibovitz

We asked Seattle photographer John Keatley about his portrait shot of the doyen of the modern glamour shot, Annie Leibovitz: ‘One of the things that I found out during my research is that Annie looks through her camera with her left eye. That was interesting to me, and I thought about photographing her as if she were looking through a camera. My original thought was to have her closing one eye, but when I explained this to her, she started using her hands around her face. I really liked how this looked, and told her that I wanted to continue with that idea. That pose ended up being the one that I connected with the most’.
