A few weeks ago I posted about Annie Leibovitz — about how I’m reading her book Annie Leibovitz At Work. I’ve nearly finished the book. I savor it, reading two or three of its short chapters each week. I like to let the ideas of each chapter sink in before I move on to the next. I highly recommend the book, whatever your artistic media.

Today, I came across an article about Leibovitz’s Dream Portraits, a project she’s doing for Disney Parks. The article tells of, and shows through her images, her creative genius.

Like all genius artists, Leibovitz hasn’t escaped criticism. She goes to bold photo frontiers, and she takes her subjects and viewers there, too. Sometimes, some feel that she’s gone too far.

I hope you have time to read the article and enjoy the amazing photos she’s created, especially if you are looking for fuel for your creativity. She’ll inspire you even if you are not a visual artist, but a writer.

And when you have the time, consider reading her book Annie Leibovitz At Work.
