hollywood portfolios by annie leibovitz

vanity fair's latest release features a director-leading actor photoshoot by annie leibovitz, in a masterstroke of pre-oscar genius. extremely inspiring photography!

yet, the portraits are never static, never self-glorifying...only stark and honest and intensely intimate; almost as if we are auteurs ourselves. the sombre palette with its soft lighting casting ethereal glows on the subjects, and the placidity of the sea tones-- you can't help but focus on the souls of 2 people who've put it on a plate for us to drink in deeply. 

and the late heath ledger, with christopher nolan, rendered inexplicably in haunting monochrome; a true artist we will not soon forget.

These pictures are great...even if they are by Annie Leibovitz who I dislike...I often feel like the only person who dislikes her.
