Weekly Questions 02-09-09

Avi Goldsteen


1. A pinhole camera is a light-proof box with a small hole on one side. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an unside-down image onthe opposite side of the box. Cameras using a small perture and the human eye in bright light both act like a pinhole camera. The shutter on a pinhole camera is operated by hand because of the long exposure time and is a flap of material that is light-proof to cover and uncover the pinhole.

2.Anna Lou Leibovitz was born in 1949 and she had five brothers and sisters. Her dad was in the Air Force and her Mom was a dancer teacher. In 1967 she decided that she loved photography while she was studying painting at the sSan Francisco Art Institute. Annie began working for Rolling Stone Magazine in 1970 ans was the chief photographer from 1972-1982. Then in 1983 she started working for Vanity Fair Magazine where she became even more famous for he photographs of celebrities. In 1967 Annie won an award for photos she took for American Express ads. She was the official photographer for the summer olympics in 1996. She has many photos published in books. Annie has three daughters.
