CELEBRITY PHOTOGRAPHER ANNIE LEIBOVITZ ON CNN’S ‘TALK ASIA’

Through her lens, Annie Leibovitz captures the pulse of society. She’s framed everyone from rock stars to heads of state, with pictures that challenge stereotypes and create a window into the people who define history. Celebrated as one of the most famous portrait photographers, her photographs are both iconic and memorable.

Next month on ‘Talk Asia’, CNN’s Kristie Lu Stout walks down memory lane with the celebrity photographer in Hong Kong, where Leibovitz’s exhibition “WOMEN: New Portraits”  is on display. It is a conversation that goes behind the scenes of some of her most notable work – including taking a picture of John Lennon hours before he was murdered, stumbling on creating the provocative image of Demi Moore nude and pregnant, and working on Caitlyn Jenner’s debut to the world for the cover of Vanity Fair.
