  • Leibovitz’s achievements were celebrated in the documentary movie Annie Leibovitz: Life Through a Lens (2009) that was made by her sister Barbara.
  • One of her most famous covers is the one for the January 1981 issue of Rolling Stone that was graced by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. That was the last professional photo taken of Lennon before he was murdered later in the day.
  • Her signature style has consisted of a strong collaboration between the photographer and the subject.
  • Once while filming her friend, the singer-songwriter Patti Smith, for the cover of Rolling Stone, Leibovitz had wanted a line of flame in the background and so she had built the rope of fire behind her. Smith ended up getting burned as kerosene put in some barrels nearby just began shooting out.
  • She used to find photographing celebrities intimidating in the beginning as they always would ask her what she wanted them to do, to which she had no answer.
