Debts closing in on photographer Annie Leibovitz
Annie Leibovitz's artsy, provocative portraits of celebrities regularly grace the covers of Vanity Fair and Vogue, images that have made her as famous as her subjects and earned her millions.

Now Leibovitz risks losing the copyright to the images — and her entire life's work — if she doesn't pay back a $24 million loan by Tuesday.

Art Capital Group, a New York company that issues short-term loans against fine and decorative arts and real estate, sued her in late July for breach of contract.
"We have clear contractual rights and will protect them in any scenario," said ACG spokesman Montieth Illingworth on Friday. "Our preference is for this to be resolved."

Some experts say filing for bankruptcy reorganization could be the best option for Leibovitz, 59, who has put up as collateral her three historic Greenwich Village townhouses, an upstate property and work. She bought two of the townhouses in 2002, embarking on extensive renovations to combine them into one property. That spurred protests from historic preservationists and a $15 million lawsuit by a neighbor.

"Based on the magnitude of her obligations and the facts as they are publicly known, that would be the best option," said art lawyer Peter Stern.

Leibovitz's images of musicians, presidents and Hollywood glitterati are cultural touchstones. One of her earliest photos is of John Lennon curled up naked in a fetal position with Yoko Ono, taken just hours before he was assassinated in 1980.

So to many, her decision to gamble the rights to her work seems inexplicable. "Jaw-dropping," Stern said.
Her editorial agent, Contact Press Images, has declined to comment on the case, saying it is a private matter.
Her spokesman, Matthew Hiltzik, has accused ACG of harassment.
"There has been tension and dispute since the beginning ... For now, her attention remains on her photography and on continuing to organize her finances," Hiltzik said.

A reorganization filing would suspend all litigation against Leibovitz and place her finances under the protection of a federal judge, said bankruptcy lawyer Paul Silverman, who works with Stern. Neither attorney is involved in the case.

Last year, Leibovitz put up her homes and the copyright to every picture she has ever taken — or will take — as collateral to secure the loan to pay off her mounting debt: unpaid bills, mortgage payments and tax liens, ACG said.

While no one has suggested publicly how Leibovitz got into such desperate financial straits, the mortgage debt on all her properties — including the townhouses in Greenwich Village and a sprawling estate in Rhinebeck, N.Y. — totaled about $15 million. This includes the $1.2 million loan she took out on two of the townhouses, and another $2.2 million three years later, according to New York magazine.

In addition to her mortgages, court records show that she piled up years of federal, state and city liens and judgments from vendors for unpaid bills — all presumably now satisfied with the $24 million she borrowed. Federal records show that Leibovitz owed a total of $2.1 million in unpaid taxes for tax years 2004, 2006 and 2007. She also had New York state tax liens of $247,980 for six years, including $135,915 in 2007. And she owed New York City several thousand dollars for three years.
In 2008, a design firm that did work on one of her Greenwich Village properties claimed that she owed it $51,000. Leibovitz was also accused that year of refusing to pay $386,000 to a photo stylist during a 2007 shoot Leibovitz did for the Disney Company in 2007.

Times might be hard for legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz at the moment, but that sure hasn’t stopped her upping her uber-fashionable game by turning designer. As one of six personalities tapped by French fashion house Louis Vuitton to come up with a signature special order piece to be auctioned off for charity, Leibovitz will design a monogrammed canvas backpack alongside Marc Jacobs, Damien Hirst and others. Requesting a large enough style to accommodate her personal effects, photo equipment and leave her hands free, Leibovitz’s design is trimmed in black leather and lined in red with a matching shoulder bag. The designs will be auctioned off at London’s Sotheby’s in London on 17 November in aid of the Red Cross, but here’s hoping she’s able to take home some commission. Leibovitz may have reached a settlement with her creditors after nearly losing both her home and rights to her work, following debts that made up a whopping $24 million, but something tells us she could still use a few extra bucks…

I went to the opening of her 'A Photographer's Life' exhibition in Vienna ...I think there were a lot of unpublished/rare pictures put up, there were amazing ones like Leonardo DeCaprio with a swan around his neck from '97 and four syncronised swimmers underwater . There was no fashion work put up but we got a free book at the end 'Annie Leibovitz At Work' ...there were some interesting stories about the Kate/Puffy couture story and the Kirsten/Marie Antoinette cover/ed.

Oh and she was there at the opening...I saw her from a distance, she looks a lot younger IRL and she looked very put together and chic all in black
