My wife recently found an interesting resurface of photographs taken by Brad Pitt of his wife, Angelina Jolie, and their family. The first thing I noticed was the cover shot of Brad holding his Leica. It was in 2008 and the camera looks like a black M-9. The grain, or noise, reminds me of the M-9 high ISO.
Brad Pitt is certainly an artist and the photographs are superb. I like the use of dark and light. I like the focus on Angelina’s lips, a very important feature in her face. The photographs of their children also do what they should – show the interaction and love between parent, child and photographer. This has always been a part of Leica photography and it shows well here.
Way to go Brad!
