Annie Leibovitz

Queen Latifah

Background History

Annie was trying to make Queen Latifah look like Ursula from "The Little Mermaid," for an ad campaign for Disney. This photo is famous because it's a famous singer/actress playing a role from an even more famous movie.

I find this portrait very interesting. It's unique because they took an actress and turned her into an animated character from a classic Disney movie, granted they had help from computers but it still looks awesome. I honestly wouldn't change anything. It looks amazing and believable. I don't think it captures Queen Latifah's personality, but she had a role to play, so that wasn't what they were going for. All in all, I love the concept of this photo, and it makes me smile because it takes me back to when I was a little kid.
