Beautiful Disney Portraits by Annie Leibovitz

WebdesignerDepot Staff By WDD Staff  |  Apr. 15, 2011

Annie Leibovitz is a celebrity photographer born in Waterbury, Connecticut.

There isn’t just one photograph that made Annie such a popular photographer. She started her career working as a staff photographer for the Rolling Stones (magazine).

She was soon on tour with The Rolling Stones as their band photographer. Before long she was photographing celebrities and band members all over the world, and has been ever since.

In 2008, Annie started a series for Disney called Dream Portraits, featuring a series of celebrities and actors/actresses re-enacting a scene from various Disney movies.

In 2011, Annie and Disney have worked together again to add more photographs to the series. This post features both the original and new shots – all of which are amazing pieces of work and incredibly detailed…
