NICOLE KID­MAN (1997) BY AN­NIE LEI­BOVITZ

The Daily Telegraph - Review - - CONTENTS -

In 1997, when Nicole Kid­man was in Eng­land shoot­ing Eyes Wide Shut, An­nie Lei­bovitz brought her to Charles­ton, the Sus­sex farm­house that once be­longed to Blooms­bury Group artists Vanessa Bell and Dun­can Grant, where she pho­tographed Kid­man sit­ting on Bell’s bed, wear­ing noth­ing but a black turtle­neck jumper. “Kubrick had asked her to stay out of the sun for a year or some­thing be­fore they started film­ing, and her skin was very white,” re­calls Lei­bovitz, in a new, up­dated edi­tion of her partly au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal, partly ed­u­ca­tional book, At Work. “Ev­ery­thing that you would think makes her a movie star was stripped away, and she still held the pic­ture... There’s not a bad way to pho­to­graph her.”
