6 Times Annie Leibovitz Captured Incredible Photos of Women

Throughout the decades, Annie Leibovitz has managed to capture beautiful, honest, and provocative moments through photography. There's more to her prolific portfolio than profiling famous subjects. 

Her photos have reached iconic status by reflecting our society's zeitgeist in the most thought provoking, yet simplistic ways. While her subjects are often successful, influential, and noteworthy, Leibovitz goes the extra mile by further empowering them through her lens. 

Caitlyn Jenner's groundbreaking Vanity Fair cover certainly lives up to those standards. Take a look back at some of Annie Leibovitz's best work in the gallery above.
