Year of a Million Dreams by Annie Leibovitz

The Disney Dream Portraits are portraits of celebrities as Disney characters which Disney commissioned Annie Leibovitz to photograph for Disney’s Year of a Million Dreams. The Year of a Million Dreams was a promotion at the Disneyland resort and that began on 1st October 2006 and ran until 31st of December 2008, extended past its original year deadline.

I think Year of a Million Dreams is very interesting as Leibovitz would of had to of spent a lot of time working with Disney and all the famous people included in the photographs to plan all these shoots out. It must of took a long time to arrange everything and get everything right so it would of needed a lot of patience for the shoots to be done.

Also with it being done to promote Disney the whole project would of had to be done to the best ability for Disney to be satisfied with them so Annie Leibovitz would of had to of put in a lot of time and effort to be able to get the photographs that she wanted and needed for the commission. I think that Leibovitz succeeded this.

To me these photographs are amazing as the models for the shoots are famous, well-known people so for those people to be part of the project to advertise and promote Year of a Million Dreams for Disney I think is huge. Everybody would know of Disney straight away that will grab their attention as of that recognition, then they’d recognise the famous people that are in the photographs and that will grab their attention even more and I just think these photographs stand out very well and would of worked extremely well for the purpose of the remakes.
