Legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz will be featured on the 20th anniversary season of AMERICAN MASTERS. The 90-minute film on the life and times of the master photographer premieres January 3 at 9pm (ET) on PBS.
As a long-time photographer for the Rolling Stone magazine Leibovitz has photographed various historical events and personalities. â€œThrough the decades, Annie Leibovitz has chronicled our cultural history. Her museum-quality portraits transcend celebrity photography,â€ says Susan Lacy, creator and executive producer of AMERICAN MASTERS.
The film coincides with Leibovitzâ€™s latest book, “A Photographerâ€™s Life: 1990-2005,” published in October by Random House.
“AMERICAN MASTERS Annie Leibovitz: Life Through A Lens” is directed by Barbara Leibovitz and is a co-production of Thirteen/WNET New York, Adirondack Pictures and Ranoah Productions Inc.
