First paperback printing. Related material laid in. A very nice copy. 2000 Large Softcover. A collaboration by one of our generation's most well-known photographers and the influential writer, critic, and social activist, who were also life partners for the last 15 years of Sontag's life. Photographs by Leibovitz taken specially for this book are paired with an essay by Sontag. 'The photographs by Annie Leibovitz inWomen, taken especially for the book, encompass a broad spectrum of subjects: a rap artist, an astronaut, two Supreme Court justices, farmers, coal miners, movie stars, showgirls, rodeo riders, socialites, reporters, dancers, a maid, a general, a surgeon, the First Lady of the United States, the secretary of state, a senator, rock stars, prostitutes, teachers, singers, athletes, poets, writers, painters, musicians, theater directors, political activists, performance artists, and businesswomen. Each of these pictures must stand on its own, Susan Sontag writes in the essay that accompanies the portraits. But the ensemble says, So this what women are now -- as different, as varied, as heroic, as forlorn, as conventional, as unconventional as this.'
