I just saw the documentary “Life Through a Lens” about Annie Leibowitz. She is a truly free spirit. A bit of a paradox, seeming both unassuming in one way and a diva in another. The images that she captures are astounding. What struck me the most was the way she becomes part of what she is photographing. She is not only quietly observing and shooting. She is very often talking with people she is photographing and they seem comfortable in her company. That is such a gift. I’m not sure whether that’s an attribute that one can learn. I think it’s just the way she is.
