L’eau Life is an animation film created to explore animating water in motion with water color. It captures both the feel of water and the emotion of being in it. It develops an energy that feels almost hypnotic, but happily so. It became a celebration of both water and summer. Photographs by Annie Leibovitz and the animation video are included

Fuzzy Knut Celebrates His First Birthday

The Fuzzy Guru Turns One

Knut’s birthday drew fans from around the world. Knut stole German hearts from the moment he stepped out into his enclosure. But the baby polar bear has fans all over the world. Many of them travelled to Berlin this week to help him celebrate his first birthday. They came to Berlin from all over the world. From Connecticut. From Belgium. From Tokyo. And all had a single mission in mind: Knut, the star polar bear at the Berlin Zoo, turned one year old on Wednesday, and his biggest fans, even those from far, far away, wanted to be there to celebrate with him.

Knut Celebrates His Birthday

Knut Making His Debut as a Baby Cub

Germany’s youngest celebrity, Knut the polar bear cub, made his much-anticipated public debut at Berlin Zoo on Friday and appeared unfazed by the media fracas surrounding the spritely little steps of his first excursion. The three-and-a-half-month old white cub padded gingerly around his new enclosure to the gasps and sighs of onlookers.

Fortified by a breakfast of porridge (perhaps oatmeal), the puppy-sized cub sniffed at the grass and rolled in the dust as he delighted the crowds. “I want to take him home,” said Daniel Wolff, five, whose mother had bought him a specially made “Knut” cuddly polar bear toy on sale on a stand outside the enclosure.

Knut stole the heart of Berliners after he was born in December, but was then rejected by his mother Tosca. A bearded zookeeper moved into the enclosure to look after him round the clock. But Knut’s fate grabbed global attention after an animal rights campaigner said hand-rearing polar bears was a violation of animal rights. German media interpreted his comments as a call for Knut to be put to sleep.

“We are not worried about Knut’s future,” Berlin Zoo vet Andre Schuele told reporters. “As a male he will grow big and strong. Polar bears are loners and he will be fine — it doesn’t matter that he has been hand-reared.”×435&style=square

Knut and Leonardo DiCaprio: Photography by Annie Leibovitz

Leonardo DiCaprio and Knut: Photography by Annie Leibovitz

While the Bush administration continues to waste time dithering about whether or not to add polar bears to the endangered-species list, the world has been celebrating the birth of Knut, the darling cub born in captivity at The Berlin Zoo.  Now four months old, little Knut has become a powerful symbol of what we have to lose to global warming.  Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz has taken Knut’s portrait for the cover of this year’s Vanity Fair Green Issue.

In behind-the-scenes photographs presented in the short slideshow below, Leibovitz and Vanity Fair Senior Photography Producer Kathryn MacLeod show Knut at home in The Berlin Zoo, and portray actor/environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio at the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, in southeast Iceland.
