In Conversation with Virginia Trioli features revealing, in-depth interviews with icons of the arts.
In this week’s revealing interview, Trioli chats with world renowned photographer and chronicler of our times, Annie Leibovitz. Through Leibovitz’s iconic imagery, the program tracks her incredible journey, from her beginnings as an art student in San Francisco during the 1960s, through her lifelong partnership with the acclaimed intellectual and writer Susan Sontag, right through to her status today as one of the most sought after celebrity portrait photographers.
Trioli discovers that Leibovitz has certainly seen and documented it all – from the Vietnam War, to touring with the Rolling Stones, to taking the last ever image of John Lennon just hours before his murder, to more recent world changing events like the fall of the Twin Towers and the first term of the Obama administration.
Featuring many iconic Leibovitz images taken over the last 50 years, this program presents an incredible snapshot revealing both the private and public life and work of Annie Leibovitz.
