American photographer Annie Leibovitz has been a prolific artist since the 1970s, where she first came into public consciousness with her iconic photography for Rolling Stone magazine. Her use of bold colours and unposed subjects have made her one of our generation’s best portrait photographers – best exampled by her most famous photo, that of John Lennon and Yoko Ono taken just days before his death. She has photographed everyone from the Queen of England to victims of domestic abuse to Hillary Clinton to countless actors, artists, musicians and political figures. These are a selection of some of my favorites of her photographs.
Kirsten Dunst & Uma Thurman are the cover stars of the Fall issue of Vs Magazine, and it is a delightful autumnal issue. In Kirsten’s sumptuous noir-style spread she vamps like the perfect doomed bombshell; Uma’s ageless vampiric beauty is on display in a thrilling story by Ellen von Unwerth; and Maddie Ziegler, the talented young dancer from Sia’s outstanding “Chandelier” video, stars in a graceful, spooky spread by Hector Perez.

Watching all these artists work together is thrilling – Pulp Fiction is such a labour of crazed love, and I adore observing the simpatico that existed between the cast and its creator as the film was being created and coming to life.
Also enjoy the bonus shots of the cast giggling together on set, including one supreme KISS HIM! shot between Travolta & Willis that sends me into FITS OF ECSTASY!
