Annie Liebovitz Calls The iPhone ‘The Snapshot Camera Of Today’

Annie Liebovitz is one of my all time favorite photographers, I totally love her work. She has had an incredible career commencing with photographing The Rolling Stones in San Francisco in 1971 and 1972 and served as the concert-tour photographer for Rolling Stones Tour of the Americas ’75 and from there to the Chief Photographer of Rolling Stone magazine in the early ’70’s.

What’s most interesting about this specific story though is recently she was interviewed by NBC where she was promoting her new book ‘Pilgrimage‘ and expressed that the iPhone is ‘the snapshot camera of today’. She then goes on to pull her iPhone out of her jacket pocket and explains ‘I’m still learning how to use mine, it’s great, it’s a pencil, it’s a pen, it’s a notebook. I can’t tell you many times I see people show me their children. It’s the wallet with the family pictures in it. It is so accessible and easy’.

You can watch the actual video of the interview below. But hey, what a great endorsement for a product by a ‘Living Legend’ as named by The Library of Congress for her work.
