But she's always on the other side of the lens, so I was astounded to see Annie photographed -naked, defiant, pregnant, pendulous veiny breasts and stretch marked backside- in my most favourite magazine.
I know Demi Moore did it, I know Britney did it. But those pictures were photo-shopped and backlit and altered to show nothing but perfection. This photo of Annie is in black and white, it's simple it's stark, it's real and glorious.
Oh how my eldest sister would have loved this photo back in the days of her first pregnancy instead of glossily lit Demi Moore to remind her of how unhollywood her own body was.
Sontag wrote-according to the article that accompanies the photo- 'To photograph people is to violate them...'
Well all I can say is, not in ths case. Annie looks magnificent.
