Although trained as a painter at the San Francisco Art Institute, she went to work for Rolling Stone as a photographer in 1970. It was while working for them that she took her photograph of a naked John Lennon wrapped around the clothed Yoko Ono, the day before his death, in 1981.
Since 1983, she's been working for Vanity Fair. It was for them that she took another very famous photo, of a very pregnant naked Demi Moore. Today she works for Conde Nast.
This book does cover her professional life. But it's much much more. It's about her life with her family, too. In it, in words and pictures, Liebowitz reveals the importance of both her parents and her siblings and their children. She also writes and shares many photographs of her own children and her companion of some fifteen years, writer Susan Sontag. "
