Nude photographs by photographer Annie Leibovitz.

In a recent article “Annie Leibovitz on the shots that made her” by The Guardian, photographer Annie Leibovitz said: “The whole idea, bringing all this work out of boxes, was to show what you have to do if you want to do this. You’re going to have to be insane, obsessed – and live it and eat it.”

She was talking about her latest photography exhibition “Annie Leibovitz. The Early Years, 1970 – 1983: Archive Project No. 1” at Hauser & Wirth in Los Angeles, California.

I love nude photography. I love photography and art in general. It is Spring in New York City, let’s create (more) nude art with your body. Click here for more info.

On December 8, 1980, Leibovitz was commissioned by Rolling Stone to photograph John Lennon and Yoko Ono, as part of the promotional efforts surrounding their joint album Double Fantasy. Later that evening, Lennon was shot and killed outside of his New York City apartment building. The magazine ran the image (sans headlines) as its cover the following month. This was the last photo of John Lennon. Photo by Annie Leibovitz.

In an interview Annie Leibovitz said: “I wanted to be a journalist. I love Life magazine, I think I have a journalistic streak in me, when you take a picture you want to tell a story. But I felt there was a lot more latitude in portraiture and you could be conceptual. I felt I had a stronger voice with a point of view.

I think at this point of my life, I feel I’m more a conceptual artist using photography more than I’m a photographer. Photography is big, there are lots of ways to use it.

When you take a still or a portrait, there is a sense of intimacy if they don’t have their clothes on. Mick Jagger in the 1970s, you couldn’t imagine him with his shirt on, it wasn’t such a big deal not having clothes on. It’s just part of portraiture.”
