The high-profile US photographer Annie Leibovitz has been busy all week snapping the French president Emmanuel Macron for a Vanity Fair splash, according to the French newspaper Le Monde. Leibovitz has trailed Macron on his daily duties, the first time that officials at the Elysée Palace have given a photographer such access to the head of state. Le Monde adds that Leibovitz photographed various museum directors—including Louvre and Musée d’Orsay officials—who dined with Macron earlier this week in the garden of the presidential palace (Leibovitz will even be on hand when the German chancellor Angela Merkel visits Paris later this week).
