Annie, get your gun

Toronto. My friend (don’t know what this site would do without his terrific input) George Dunbar writes, “This CBC news story regarding Annie Leibovitz and¬†the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia should certainly interest PHSC members.”

Annie was one of my favourite photographers a few years back. When we had our store on Bloor, I can remember seeing her then shocking cover photograph of a very pregnant Demi Moore displayed on a local newsstand.

I was sad to learn that her exceptional photographs were mired in a CRA battle over cultural value and tax implications and may never see the Halifax daylight as intended.
