fearlessness, and of course, creativity. She was born in Waterbury, Connecticut in
1949. Leibovitz attended San Francisco Art Institute where she fell in love with
photography. Leibovitz’s work is recognized to be iconic portraits that incorporate
primary colors and non traditional poses. She got a job working for Rolling Stone
Magazine where she started off as Staff Manager and became Chief Photographer after
two years of impressionable work. This job had its rewards and setbacks. Leibovitz
accompanied the Rolling Stones Band on their 1975 International Tour, however she
acquired a heavy drug addiction from the experience. Leibovitz continued her work,
nonetheless, capturing iconic photos such as a nude John Lennon with wife, Yoko Ono.
Leibovitz’s original vision for the photo was for Ono to disrobe, however she wasn’t
willing. This photo was taken just hours before the assassination of Lennon, and landed
