Artists have been mak­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary por­traits of the mighty for cen­turies, from Velázquez’s Philip IV to Lu­cian Freud’s Queen El­iz­a­beth II. But ar­guably the great­est por­trait-taker of our age isn’t a painter but a pho­tog­ra­pher: An­nie Leibovitz. Her ca­reer spans nearly five decades, start­ing in 1970 when she be­gan cre­at­ing leg­endary por­traits for Rolling Stone fol­lowed by three decades at Van­ity Fair and Vogue. This 11-year over­view of her work in­cludes im­ages of those con­sid­ered “mod­ern roy­alty:” Venus and Ser­ena Wil­liams, Chi­ma­manda Ngozi Adichie, Sh­eryl Sand­berg, Anna Win­tour, Cait­lyn Jen­ner, Glo­ria Steinem, Joan Did­ion, and Barack Obama. Oh—and ac­tual roy­alty, from when El­iz­a­beth II posed for the pho­tog­ra­pher in 2011. All of which are ac­com­pa­nied with witty com­ments from Leibovitz, plus a lyri­cal fore­word by au­thor Alexan­dra Fuller.
