29 April 2010: A Living Legend

Bill and I went to see Annie Leibovitz tonight at the Syracuse University Lecture Series. She has a niece that is a student at SU so she was instrumental in bringing her there. She is an amazing photographer with some of the most iconic photos of rock stars...celebreties...royalty. Check out some of her iconic photos (the most famous ones being John Lennon and Yoko Ono Rolling Stone Cover and a naked pregnant Demi Moore). However, she is not a great speaker. She seemed to stumble a lot over her words but there were several nuggets where she seemed to let her guard down and engage the audience. That being said, I am glad I had a chance to see her and hear her speak about her work. Bill bought me one of her books which we stood in line to get signed - she seemed a bit more relaxed when she was not speaking to a standing room only audience.
