Summary and Conclusion

From the Paper:

"It is clear that Leibovitz is not afraid to let the world know that she has grown and gone through changes both personally and professionally during the course of her career as a well-known and celebrated photographer. It is just as clear that Leibovitz either arrived at her beginnings as a photographer in possession of empathy from the perspective of other women and womanhood at large as this is evidenced with clarity in the statements she has made in interviews and related in this work. Specifically, she notes the fear with which her subjects viewed their own photography and even her own trepidation as she unveiled her life in the form of her children in a revealing book timed at her own father's death. When Leibovitz's partner Susan Sontag passed away there was some perturbation on the part of her partner's son concerning a picture of Sontag lying in state at the funeral home however, Leibovitz notes that each individual grieves in their own manner and one can almost see Leibovitz reflecting upon the pictures she took of Yoko Ono just following the death of John Lennon and then years after when Yoko Ono was photographed again by Leibovitz."
