Story Synopsis:
Experience Annie Leibovitz and her Life Through A Lens in this behind-the-scenes look at what has and continues to shape the work of one of the world

DVD Picture:

Resolution is adequate, but even the original footage is relatively soft. Black levels are elevated and shadows are crushed at the near blacks. Fleshtones appear natural, although low overall contrast helps make them look relatively pale. Compression artifacts are recognizable throughout, as is moir
