I'm running the risk of categorizing myself as being too outspoken a critic of Annie Leibovitz, and I must say that personally I wish her well and admire her accomplishments. Mealy-mouth aside, people might find this interesting—to continue yesterday's theme of economic news. Read the first paragraph.
Although how the phrase "it's very discreet" (a few paragraphs further down) then applies, I'm not exactly sure. What's less discreet than having your personal business splashed across the pages of the Times?
If you're interested in this sort of thing, there's a book about this general subject that's been getting some great reviews and press lately. Can't tell you much more about it—I've got it on order. I have a feeling it's right up my alley, though. If it really does help answer the question "What makes a particular work valuable while others are ignored?" then I'll enjoy it, because that's something that often perplexes me.
