She photographed John Lennon on the day he was assassinated, and her work was used on two record albums by Joan Armatrading. She is the only woman to have held an exhibition at London’s National Portrait Gallery.

Annie started her career as staff photographer working for Rolling Stone magazine. In 1973, she was named chief photographer - a position she would hold for the next decade. Her leadership as chief photographer and her intimate photographs of her subjects defined the Rolling Stone "look".
