Intimate Black & White Photos Of Angelina Jolie Taken By Brad Pitt
These intimate black & white photos of Angelina Jolie taken by Brad Pitt have resurfaced online after news of Brangelina splitting up. When Angelina Jolie announced that she was filing for divorce due to irreconcilable differences, the world stood still for a moment. Brangelina was more than a celebrity couple. Brangelina was what every couple around the world wanted to be. They were the sheer definition of ‘the perfect couple’.
Back in 2007, Dennis Freedman and photographer Bruce Weber gave Brad Pitt the task of capturing intimate black and white photos of his wife, Angelina Jolie, for a pictorial for W Magazine. Of course Brad Pitt said yes and the results are absolutely fascinating.
First published in W Magazine in 2008, these beautiful and unique photographs have resurfaced online after the couple’s divorce announcement.
The story behind this photos begins after the birth of Vivienne and Knox, the couple’s pair of twins. Angelina and Brad are spending time at their home in Southern France where they live with their six children and two dogs. He started taking photos of Angelina in 2007, shortly after she gave him a camera for Christmas. These almost vintage snaps were taken with a Littman 45 Single, showing the couple’s intimacy straight in their very own home.
He’s someone who will really study the camera—he’ll get the most complicated one and really understand the science behind it. He’s very critical of his own work. I’ll see a photograph and think it’s amazing, but he’ll see all the different reasons why it can be better, and he’ll work very, very hard to improve it, said Angelina Jolie.
The first photos of their newborn twins were sold by Brangelina for a staggering $14 million to People and Hello. However, this photo series of Angelina is priceless, reflecting a time when the couple was in its prime years.
