#Fact
1She was the first female, chief photographer for Jann Wenner's "Rolling Stone Magazine," a post she held from 1973 to 1983. However, she was not first female to photograph a cover for the magazine. That distinction belongs to Linda McCartney with her blue solarized portrait of Eric Clapton captured for the cover of the May 11, 1968 issue.
2She was the last person to professionally photograph John Lennon alive (early on the day he was assassinated). However, the very last person to photograph Lennon, shortly before he was fatally shot, was amateur photographer Paul Goresh.
3Her most famous photos include those of a nude John Lennon, hugging a clothed Yoko Ono, taken in the morning before his death, Demi Moore with a suit painted on her body, Whoopi Goldberg lying in a bathtub full of milk, Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi with their faces painted blue and recently Queen Elizabeth II during her US visit in 2007.
4After ten years as chief photographer of "Rolling Stone" magazine, she has been a featured portrait photographer for "Vanity Fair" since 1983.
5Being one of the world's leading portrait photographers, her style is marked by a close collaboration between the photographer and the subject.
6Her father was a United States Air Force lieutenant colonel, her mother worked as a modern dance instructor.
7Has three children: daughter Sarah Cameron, born in October 2001, when Annie was 52 years old, and her twins Susan and Samuelle, born to a surrogate mother in May 2005.
8Longtime companion of essayist Susan Sontag from the mid 1980s until Sontag's death.
