I'm surprised you did not mention the marriage equality angle to this story. As I understand it, a significant reason for Leibovitz's financial constraint (and also, perhaps, for her freedom to refrain from playing by the rules of the art world over the last 40 years) was due to her relationship with Susan Sontag. The properties Sontag left to Leibovitz were subject to taxation which caused a cash flow crunch. Had they been able to marry, this would not have been the case.

Andrew, when are you going to post the Leibovitz photos she took of you?

There is just one - the 1992 Gap ad. I haven't had it scanned. I look scarily young and twinky.
