Cameron’s Camera

Vanity Fair recently tasked acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz with photographing the creative forces behind the past year’s greatest films, focussing on “the bond between actor and director.” The results can be seen here and show the likes of Meryl Streep and Penélope Cruz posing with their respective directors.

Within the twelve photographs there is one notable exception which you can see above; for some reason James Cameron is posing not with Sam Worthington and/or Zoe Saldana but with his revolutionary camera. I find this particularly odd considering him constantly stating that the acting in Avatar is every bit as real as in a fully live action film, yet here Cameron is almost calling the camera his biggest collaborator. Weird.
