Portrait of Life, 2013

Portrait of Life is an editorial design of a book that displays the works of Patti Smith and Annie Leibovitz. Smith was a singer and poet inspired to take photographs, while Leibovitz was a photographer inspired by author Susan Sontag. The book attempts to convey the many similarities shared by these two artists through a subtle inversion of font and the shades of the white paper. The pages also have varying levels of transparency, allowing for words to reveal new meanings by rising unexpectedly to the surface.
