more annie love

This photograph of Annie Leibovitz's mum hasn't been far from my mind since I saw her exhibition two weeks ago.  I find the portrait so powerful, perhaps because of the lighting and it's simplicity compared to her big budget shoots.  

But the power of the portrait doesn't translate through replicas in books or on the screen, you really have to see it in the flesh to appreciate the depth in the photograph.
