Most months, you can see photographer Annie Leibovitz’s portraits of influential women on the covers of magazines like Vanity Fair and Vogue. Everyone from Hillary Clinton to Serena Williams to a mostly nude Amy Schumer have been in front of her lens. Her current exhibition “Women” updates a book of portraits she made with Susan Sontag back in 1999. The images now on display at San Francisco's Crissy Field reflect the changing roles women occupy today. Leibovitz sat down with KALW's Lauren Schiller to talk more about her work and process.

Leibovitz: I'm sort of like don't give me a cover to do, I don't want a cover. I want to do the inside page.

Annie Leibovitz’s series “Women” is on display at Crissy Field through April17th. This interview is part of the KALW podcast Inflection Point, a program devoted to bringing you conversations with women who are changing the status quo. You can find it on our podcast page, at kalw.org/subscribe.
