World leaders, Hollywood stars, the business elite - why does everyone want to get their picture in 'Vanity Fair'?

Camera lens gives a face to the music

Portraits of Victorian composers will sit alongside large exhibition prints such as that of Benjamin Britten by Karsh and modern studies such as Annie Leibovitz's 1970 picture of John Lennon in a new exhibition celebrating 150 years of photographs of British composers, writes David Lister. The show, "Variations On A Theme", opens at the National Portrait Gallery in London today. Many of the exhibits come from the gallery's archives and are rarely on view. A series of concerts in the gallery will feature music by composers from the exhibition.

PHOTOGRAPHY / How flattery got Annie everywhere: Annie Leibovitz has easier access to the famous than any other photographer. That's the problem, says Giles Smith

THE PICTURES from Sarajevo come last - 12 of them in a block featuring blood and death and one grim birth, closing this retrospective of work by Annie Leibovitz, queen of the celebrity portrait, toast of Vanity Fair. The message is, there's a world of suffering out there; but coming after yards of celebs in succulent colour - athletes, politicians, rock stars, film stars, Richard Branson - you may find it arrives a little late.

PHOTOGRAPHY / A ride on the back of a horse called Fame: 'Hello] magazine with the neuroses and without the naffness': Andrew Palmer questions the work of Annie Leibovitz, on show at the National Portrait Gallery

War-torn Sarajevo is a real problem. The eight or so images which hang on the concluding wall of the Annie Leibovitz portrait show come at you like a hazardous exclamation mark at the end of an otherwise straightforward piece of prose.

Talking pictures with Annie Leibovitz: From Jagger to Trump, she summed up the Seventies and Eighties. Her latest subject is Sarajevo. As a new show opens in London, the photographer talks to Angela Lambert

When you enter the exhibition of Annie Leibovitz's photographs at the National Portrait Gallery you should immediately turn right. On that end wall is a series of images from Sarajevo. They are so compelling that they demand to be seen at the beginning rather than as the culmination of the show. A fallen bicycle, a huge comma of black blood in its wake; a new-born baby arched in the air, still umbilically attached; a murdered man with bloodied face cradled in his own plaid coat. Many were taken only last month. After nearly 35 years and millions of negatives, Leibovitz's eye is as tender and ruthless as ever.

Fashion: Yours: big shots at a snip

What sounds like a roll call of the mavens of fashion photography is actually a list of contributors to 'Fashion Exposures', an exhibition organised by the Aids charity Fashion Acts and sponsored by the Independent.

TELEVISION / The loneliness of the long-distance runner: James Rampton watches Rushdie on the move, four years on; plus Adventures, Screen Two and The South Bank Show

IT cannot be much fun to have to go to the lavatory with a posse of Special Branch officers in tow. But that's what life is like for Salman Rushdie: In the Shadow of the Fatwa (Sunday C4). In such seemingly mundane details, Udi Eichler's film effectively captured the captured writer's loneliness. Rushdie's four years in hiding have, for instance, honed his skills at Nintendo. In a blackly comic sequence, he enthused about his ability to zap his enemies with fire-balls.
