Elizabeth II, Buckingham Palace, London, March 28, 2007. Photograph by Annie Leibovitz.
Annie on shooting a pregnant Demi Moore for the cover of Vanity Fair:
It’s hard to imagine now, but the portrait of Demi Moore nude and pregnant on the cover of Vanity Fair was truly scandalous in 1991. Scandalous in the sense of shocking and morally offensive to some people. The first day the issue was available, it sold out on newsstands at Grand Central Station during the morning rush hour. Newsstands in other parts of the country displayed it in a white paper wrapper, as if it were a porn magazine.
I really like Annie's stuff. It think that she has been a major contributor to improving photography's place in the arts world.
