Annie Leibovitz is perhaps the most famous living portrait photographer.  Her shots of celebrities, including musicians, politicians and athletes, have celebrated worldwide.  Leibovitz strives to incorporate the public persona of her subject or sitter into each of her photos.  Rather than static headshots, Leibovitz often uses her subject's entire body, most often while in motion, to dispel any artificial qualities.  Leibovitz has photographed for magazines as well as prestigious advertisers, such as Gap and American Express.  She is one of only two living photographers to have had an exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery.
