'Annie Leibovitz At Work'. We'll see...

Annie Leibovitz is a world-renowned photographer. Sure, her work and her approach are not to everyone's tastes - but isn't that the case with every artist?

Me, I fall somewhere in the middle ground of opinion. I can appreciate her work and her
technical ability, but not necessarily the manner in which she goes about things. That said, I must admit that I have not taken the time to really explore her photography or outlook in any great depth, so it's a case of 'watch this space' and I look forward to being enlightened.

I do, however, love to read, see and hear about the way other photographers practice their art. Which is why I have put in my order for Leibovitz's forthcoming book - "At Work" - which I understand is a behind-the-scenes look at a number of her more well-known shoots.

It won't be hitting my door mat for a good month or two yet, but I'll be sure to put down a few thoughts and a recommendation for it (hopefully) just as soon as I get the chance.

Do you have any photography/art/culture recommendations? Not just books - but websites, exhibitions, blogs... anything which you've found to be a source of inspiration. Please let me know by following the 'Comments' link below.
