Leibovitz Explains Bono’s Vanity Fair Africa Covers

Annie explains the “monumental task” of pulling together 20 covers:

“The covers are a kind of visual chain letter, spreading the message from person to person to person. These are incredible people of our time who all have a passion for and a connection to Africa. It was important to me to really show the humanity in their faces. In a couple of cases people are actually together, like Condoleezza Rice and George W. Bush and Alicia Keys and Iman, but the reality is that with people’s schedules and availability it was not possible to shoot everyone together. So, these are more photo illustrations than photographs, but the point was to unite people for a common purpose.”

We were wondering how Condoleeza managed to block out Bono‘s death stare.
