Meeting Annie Leibovitz

“The camera makes you forget you’re there. It’s not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.” – Annie Leibovitz

Don't I know about that one. Bearing witness, so intimate, yet, one is removed from the event. Sometimes the camera renders one invisible. I met Annie once at a museum opening of her work, and the work of Hung Liu. Larger than life, Annie was hardly invisible! I was pretty chuffed, I even have a photo of her. But it's out of focus, as if the lens couldn't take all of her in.
