Just watched a Tivo'd copy of the American masters show on our local public broadcasting station. If you get a chance to see it, check it out. It is a great documentary about the career of Anne Leibovitz.
I have to admit, it is not my style of photography, I do not aspire to be a creater of a scene, just a recorder of a scene. I always found her stuff to be contrived, maybe a little camp some times, but after seeing a cross section of her work as she learned and expanded and went in new directions as they became available, I have to say I am very impressed by her as a human, and now as a photographer.
Anyway, check it out if it rebroadcasts in your area. A definite must see for anyone that wants to grow and learn.

Did you see her work in regards to the death of Susan Sontag the author. She documented her fight with cancer and its powerful and her best work by far.
