Interesting Couple | Annie Leibovitz & Susan Sontag

This is a tricky one, since one part of the couple is a really famous portrait photographer, so she is always behind the lens. The other was a powerhouse of intellectual writing, hence more likely to be in front of the lens. Plus, Susan once said that she “grew up in a time when the modus operandi was the ‘open secret’” so frequent showing off with Annie for social photographs was not likely or maybe encouraged. Then I found a copy of a photo of them together!

Annie’s photos are iconic; Susan has written hell of a book “On Photography” and forever changed my view on what it means to photograph, how predatory of a task it can be.
