Anna-Lou Leibovitz
Anna-Lou Leibovitz is an inspirational photographer who is known by many for her fantastic work, worldwide. Some things that make her such a good photographer is her ability to take risks. She goes above and beyond the average expectations of a picture in order to truly capture her viewers attention. Whether it be from the shoot with John Lennon’s naked while his legs were hugging onto his wife, all the way to the highly controversial photo of Miley Cyrus’ bare back, which many believed was only used and released for media attention and to make sales, Anna-Lou Leibovitz’ photographs are eye-catching and different from the norm of what society always views in photographs.
Another reason why Anna-Lou Leibovitz is such a good photographer is because of the fact that she has a good sense of vision and sensitivity. Lebovitz’ vision is something that truly makes her, because she always knows exactly how many items, and which items to place on a set for a photo shoot. To be a good photographer you need to use the right amount to of set pieces to complement the subject of the picture, not take away from it, as well as be able to take pictures from various angles to test out which would look better, and these are both things that she does very well. She also has a good sensitivity meaning that she is able to recognize the subtleties of colour, texture, and lighting.
Anna-Lou Lebovitz is now known as the photographer who tells a story through her pictures. She makes good use of background, clothing and takes advantage of the weather in order to truly capture the moment. Lebovitz is known to have taken photographs of any and every celebrity you could ever imagine, which proves that her work is truly respected by significant figures worldwide.
One of my favourite photos of hers is of the photo of Iggy Pop. I feel as though this photo really tells a story…...

...Anna Kingsley: A Remarkable Story Kimberley DeBessonet ENC 1102 Prof. Sandra McDonald Everest University October 4, 2011 Anna Kingsley, was born Anta Majigeen Ndiaye in Senegal, West Africa in 1793. She helped establish some of the communities in modern day Jacksonville and Orange Park, Florida. Daniel L. Schafer, Professor of History at the University of North Florida, spent nearly twenty-five years researching about her life. Early accounts of her life are based on history memorized by a griot, the oral historian of the village, who passes down the historical accounts through generations. “Mamadou Diouf, a Senegal Historian, speculated that at some point Anta Majigeen Ndiaye may have been recognized as a child of royalty and received special treatment at the time she was sold” (Schafer, 2003, p.18). However, early aspects of her life lack written evidence and the accounts of her being a “royal princess” are just legends. Anna Kingsley overcame the adversity of slavery because, she gained her freedom, she became the respected wife of a plantation owner and she was a successful business woman. By all accounts about that era, her story as an African slave to matriarch of the Kingsley family is a remarkable story. In April 1806 Anta, her mother and the others from her Wolof family village were captured, rounded up and herded to the coast for sale into slavery. She survived the transatlantic crossing, called the “Middle Passage” to Cuba and then was later......

...Anna’s Serious!!!!! One morning day, Anna woke up in her biggest and a most wonderful room that a girl can ever have. It was a bright shiny morning and Anna couldn’t wait for her next trip to the library where she can pick hundreds of books to take home with her. That was her favourite hobby, reading books. Not only she liked reading books, but she was one of those people who like to study for tests and go to the library during lunch periods and study all day. Her only disadvantage was that no one wanted to become friends with her because everybody realized that she was a school freak and a “teacher’s pet” so students called. Some people like her because she was the richest person in the whole town!! Anna didn’t approve to that one bit. Her only friend in the world was Sophie McDonald. She was born as a foster child and was delighted to become friends with a rich and the smartest student in the school. They’ve been friends ever since. Ever since that day Anna met her new friend, she would wake up every morning at 9:00; she would meet Sophie at the library and read. “Darling! “ “Your breakfast is ready!” her mother shouted. “I’m coming!!” Anna shouted. Anna rushed to put her clothes on and ran downstairs to have her breakfast. “Are you going to meet Sophie again!?” “You see her every weekend and we never get to spend time together.” “You know....a daughter and a mother hangout.” “Mom, I told you, she’s like my best friend in the world that I know where I go to high......

Anna Freud

...Running Head: ANNA FREUD Anna Freud Anna Freud Selecting a woman that made significant contributions to the field of psychology between the years 1850 and 1950 is not an easy task as there is more than one woman who made significant contributions to the field of Psychology. Out of those talented women Anna Freud, overshadows her colleagues. Anna can be considered to have a fascinating background, which influenced her later development of unique theoretical perspectives. Her father, Sigmund Freud famous for his multiple theories about the mind he is regarded as the founder of psychology probably influenced her following his footsteps and being interested in psychoanalysis, in particular, in child psychoanalysis. However, her recognition as the founder of child psychoanalysis was not just given to her for being her father's daughter. Anna Freud earned it by contributing to the field of Psychology with the many roles she played in her career as teacher, theorist, healer, leader, idealist and writer (Coles, 1992). Anna's contributions to psychology not only help to contribute to the development of psychology but helped improve many lives. Anna Freud was born in Vienna December 3, 1895 her parents Sigmund and Martha Freud. Her father considered her a blessing; conversely, she did not develop a close relationship with her mother it appears that she considered her nanny a genuine figure in her childhood.

She grew up in the household of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychology. Under his wing she grew a deep attachment and love for him and the field of psychoanalysis.

Anna, the youngest of Sigmund Freud’s six children and the only one who became a psychoanalyst, was born in Vienna December 3, 1895. Freud’s mother was more attached to the other children which left Anna with her father most of the time. Even right after her birth her mother went on vacation for several months leaving not only Anna in the sole care of the nanny Josefine Chihlarz but the two other young siblings. Anna was extremely attached to Josefine and was quoted saying she was ‘the most genuine of my childhood” (Freud, 1991)...

Anna was very close with her father, Sigmund Freud but not as close with her mother, and had strained relationships with her siblings, which was the five of them. Anna also attended school, which was an isolated school, but she decided to drop out because she felt as though she was not learning so her father and his associates taught her. Although her education came from them he and his associates taught her the majority of her learning experience. After advancing in high school, Freud taught as one of the elementary schoolteacher, which she began interpreting a little of her father’s work into German while enhancing her curiosity in psychoanalysis and child psychology.

Anna Karenina

...Anna Karenina (rusă: Анна Каренина) este un roman scris de Lev Tolstoi și publicat în foiletoane, în intervalul 1875 - 1877. Cu „Anna Karenina”, atenția lui Tolstoi se îndreaptă spre viața contemporană. În raport cu „Război și pace”, aici sfera de realități și probleme se restrange: este un roman al vieții de familie. „Anna Karenina” este considerat cel mai „cinematografic” roman al lui Tolstoi, beneficiind de numeroase ecranizări. Nefericita Anna a fost întruchipată de actrițe celebre: Greta Garbo (1935), Vivien Leigh (1948), Jacqueline Bisset (1985), Sophie Marceau (1997). Ca și în „Război şi pace”, cadrul social (aproximativ 150 de personaje) este și aici amplu și atent investigat. Problemele aduse în discuție, ilustrate prin cazul personajelor principale, demonstrate de destinul lor, au un caracter diferit, mai puțin social, mai mult individual, mai nuanțat filozofic: sensul și scopul vieții, condițiile morale ale căsătoriei și vieții de familie, relația dintre viața și moarte, dintre iubire și fericire. Privirile scriitorului se extind însă și asupra unui câmp social vast, cuprinzând intelectuali, negustori, țărani, etc. În primul plan însă rămâne lumea nobilimii, în cadrul căreia, cu subliniate tendințe moralizatoare, Tolstoi ține să pună în relief corupția lumii mondene, a aristocrației citadine, căreia îi este opusă, într-un viu efect de contrast, viața simplă, sinceră, pură, a nobilimii rurale, reprezentată de familia Levin. În 1873, Tolstoi a început să......

Anna Hope's - a Gap of Sky

...Trine K. Bundsgaard Esbjerg Statsskole, 3m Engelsk A Gap og Sky 03-09-10 A Gap of Sky A) There is always a reason to why people abuse. Whether they drink a little too much some times, numbs them selves with various medicines or shoots up hard every single day, there is always a reason. In Anna Hope’s short story ”A Gap of Sky” from 2008 we meet a young girl, who without a doubt has a reason to want to get away from everything. The story starts in medias res with “It is dark, but the wrong dark. Something is wrong with the dark.” (l. 1) letting us know from the beginning, 19-year old Ellie’s state of mind. The dark is wrong, because it isn’t just a physical dark, but a dark within her as well. It’s told in 3. Person, even though we are more than bound to Ellie, more like trapped insight her head. The text is a constant stream of her feelings and thoughts only, giving us an idea of how she must feel herself; being trapped in her own head unable to get out and think of anything else or anyone else. Ellie’s thoughts are flighty, so even though she, throughout the story, thinks a lot of different things, it all happens in hours. Ellie goes to the University College London, she lives in a crappy place, and she abuses. She does hard, dangerous drugs, so that she wakes up after a night of “fun” unable to remember what she did, or even what she took. She has to write an essay, in order not to get kicked out of school, or having to repeat the year, which she really doesn’t want to......

Anna Karenina Quotes

...and is surprised that Dolly’s upset about it. Example: Vronsky is being teased by Princess Betsy about Anna. When Vronsky talks to Princess Betsy at the Opera House about being afraid of becoming ridiculous, “He knew very well that in the eyes of Betsy and all society people he ran no risk of being ridiculous. He knew very well that for those people the role of the unhappy lover of a young girl, or of a free woman generally, might be ridiculous; but the role of a man who attached himself to a married woman and devoted his life to involving her in adultery at all cost, had something beautiful and grand about it and could never be ridiculous” (128). Society acknowledges Example: Oblonsky visits Levin and they have dinner after doing some shooting. By the end of dinner, it is evident that Oblonsky has been participating in sexual activities with women other than his wife: “‘You don’t accept that one can like sweet rolls when one has a daily rotation of bread - in your opinion, it’s a crime. But I don’t accept life without love,’” (162). Example: Anna receives a letter from Karenin. “Yes, the mean, vile man! And I’m the only one who understands or ever will understand it; and I can’t explain it. They say he’s a religious, moral, honest, intelligent man; but they don’t see what i’ve seen” (292). Everyone will see Karenin’s decision of an ethical, honorable man. Anna lacks the strength to abandon her former social position. She can’t imagine losing her life for an even......

Anna Karenina Essay

...problems. This is what happens to the heroine of Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina when she leaves one relationship for another, more destructive one. In the novel Anna Karenina, Tolstoy creates a character whose lack of communication destroys both of her romantic relationships and eventually herself. The reader is first introduced to Anna while she is visiting her brother’s family in Moscow. Here, she is described by nearly everyone she meets as charming and animated, and she seems to feel a fire within her. Upon returning home in Petersburg, the fire has gone out and it is clear to readers that Anna is bored, stuck in the routine of her love life while she thinks of Vronsky, a man she met in Moscow. “Not only was the animation that had simply been gushing out of her eyes and her smile in Moscow no longer there: on the contrary, the fire in her now seemed quenched or hidden somewhere deep inside her” (Tolstoy 134). This line provides foreshadowing for the steps Anna will take in trying to find the same fire and happiness she felt while in Moscow, instead of reaching out to her husband for help. Soon, Anna finds herself in an affair with Vronsky, sneaking to parties to meet up with him. While her husband, Karenin, senses her infidelity, he buries himself in his work and ignores the feeling. While both of them are unhappy, neither says anything to address the problem which drives them further apart. Soon after, Anna and Karenin attend a horserace in which Vronsky is racing. It......

Anna Karenina

...Anna Karenina Anna Karenina is a novel by the Russian writer Leo Tolstoy. It was born in the society where capitalism was developing and shifted from the old society to the new one in the late-19th-century feudal Russia, but the society wasn’t out of the shackles of feudalistic ideas. It describes the tragic story that the noble married woman called Anna fell in love with a young man, who is also an aristocrat in the aristocracy, and finally they break up and Anna kills herself. Tolstoy's style in Anna Karenina is considered by many critics to be transitional, forming a bridge between the realist and modernist novel. Anna married socialite and but she has affair with the affluent Count Vronsky. The story opens when she arrives in the midst of a family broken up by her brother's unbridled womanizing—something that prefigures her own later situation, though she would experience less tolerance by others. Vronsky is eager to marry her if she will agree to leave her husband Karenin, a senior government official, but she is vulnerable to the pressures of Russian social norms, the moral laws of the Russian Orthodox Church, her own insecurities, and Karenin's indecision. Although Vronsky and Anna go to Italy, where they can be together, they have trouble making friends. Back in Russia, she is shunned, becoming further isolated and anxious, while Vronsky pursues his social life. Despite Vronsky's reassurances, she grows increasingly possessive and paranoid about his imagined......

Anna Deveare Smith

...Afsara Kelline Mir April 1, 2011 Period 4 Anna Deveare Smith has meshed together many untold stories of victims to racism, bias and prejudice. Though we might perceive this line of work to be her attempt to unveil the truth of the conflict in Crown Heights, I believe that Smith retold the stories that reflected prejudice, racism and bias in Crown Heights, not to seek who was wrong or right in Crown Heights, but to uncover the deep-seated hatred that occurs in this country. The truth may never be revealed but the audience is able to understand that the reasons for the rage in Crown Heights are more than just the Gavin Cato case of Yankel Rosenbaum’s murder. Anna Deveare Smith’s method of finding the truth in peoples stories lies in their syntax. The stutters and the “um’s” give the audience a better understanding of the character because in those stammers and pauses we, even for a moment, see some truth. Although it may help us understand where people are coming from, we still have no definite answer for why things ended up the way they did in Crown Heights. For example, in the monologue titled, Static, a Jewish woman says, “ I saw a little boy in the neighborhood, who I didn’t know and who didn’t know me—not Jewish, he was black and he wasn’t wearing a yarmulke because you can’t—“. The pauses in this particular monologue tell me that this woman is trying to watch what she says. In the times of hatred between Blacks......
