If I had a time capsule, I’d programme it to take me to all of Annie Leibovitz’s photo shoots from 1970 to now. Highlights for me would be Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 Rolling Stone cover, the extremely personal last photographs of John Lennon and Yoko Ono (which were shot five hours before Lennon’s death in 1981), and Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the U.S.A album cover shoot.
Remember the days when coffee was coffee, and the only extra you’d get with a serving of Colombia’s finest was a splash of milk and a few teaspoons of fake sugar? Well, my friends, those days are long gone. Now every barista worth their weight in beans is able to craft intricate artworks out of magical brown dust. Heck, many of them are worthy of a place on the haloed walls of the Museum of Contemporary Art.
