Annie Leibovitz’s GAME OF THRONES Photos are Right Up Her Fantastical Alley

Many of you out there know Annie Leibovitz’s work even if they don’t know her name. The iconic photographer has taken some of the most beautiful pictures in the world, tackling the larger-than-life with a mesmerizing clarity. And her photo shoot with HBO’s Game of Thrones for Vanity Fair is no different. In fact, the fantastical world of Westeros is the perfect place for her artistic eye.

As evidenced by the photos released today to coincide with the forthcoming cover story, Leibovitz had the Lannisters, the Starks, and everyone in between (Hodor! Hodor Hodor Hodor.) on hand to bring her brand of lush magical reality into photographic life.



While this would likely be a change of pace for most run-of-the-mill fashion and magazine photographers, the realm of Game of Thrones bears striking resemblance to some of her other portraits — particularly her Disney Dream Portraits. Just look at this behind-the-scenes video and tell me this isn’t a match made in artistic heaven:

And since we love two things — art and reminiscing — we’ve compiled some of our favorite and most fantastical Leibovitz portraits for your viewing pleasure. It’ll help stave off the cold, dark reality that we still have several weeks to wait for the series’ return (April 6th, must you take so long?).

What do you think of Leibovitz’s photo shoot? Let us know in the comments. And make sure you join the fantasy fantasy league!

    Annie’s work is, as always, exquisite!

  2. Jo Ann says:

    Only one person talked about the subject. The pictures are beautiful

    lol, Craig did not say that ‘be’ is a pronoun – he was talking about two different things. The pronoun problem that he indicates is in the first sentence, as he notes. As far as I know, ‘you’ and ‘they’ are indeed pronouns, and they are not interchangeable, as used in the first sentence.

    Denaris. She has big lizards in her back yard

    Good job on pointing that out Craig…. except for one thing… ‘be’ is not a pronoun.

  6. Craig says:

    You are a site called PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE proofread things before you publish them to the web. It is necessary and only takes a little time to perform. The very first sentence has pronoun problems. And this sentence “While this would likely a change of pace for most…” is just lazy. The word “be” plays an important part in the English language and should never left out for obvious reasons (yes, I omitted the word there to prove my point). Other than these extremely obvious errors, this was a good article about a great show.
