When she returns to Baltimore, Zoey Washington walks the streets with relative anonymity. She'll pop into local boutiques unnoticed. This isn't the reception you would expect for a woman who founded a nationally recognized styling collective, LittleBird, focused on the teen and tween demographic, and who has held editing positions with some of the world's best-known glossies. Washington, a 31-year-old graduate of Garrison Forest School and Columbia University, prefers it that way. But Washington's resume reads like a who's who of fashion elite: She's held positions at Marie Claire, Vogue and Essence.

Photography in the postmodern era has taken an odd turn away from what most people think the camera is for.Rather than simply being a convincing image of the world, photographs increasingly have had to serve double duty as exemplars of all sorts of arcane academic theories as well as chief whipping boy for the culture wars. The result has been a lot of boring pictures by art world stars that pitifully masquerade as serious art.Fortunately, some of the best photographers have refused to compromise their vision to accommodate the fad for incomprehensible French poststructuralist theory and obnoxious subject matter.

At 58, celebrity portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz seems to have made peace with the choices that led her to a fantastically successful, 35-year career. Though her photos hang in art museums - an exhibition of her work opened this weekend at the Corcoran Gallery of Art - she doesn't seem particularly insistent on claiming everything she does is great art. In Washington last week to promote her show Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer's Life, 1990-2005, she fielded more criticism that the concept - mixing slick images of Demi Moore, Brad Pitt, Queen Elizabeth II, etc. with personal snapshots of family and friends - seemed self-indulgent.

Leave aside for the moment whether Annie Leibovitz is a great artist and focus instead on what she undoubtedly is: a terrific celebrity portrait photographer - maybe, in the post-Richard Avedon era, the best there is. After seeing Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer's Life, 1990-2005, the 15-year retrospective of Leibovitz's commercial and personal work that opens today at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, I've got to confess I'm tired of hearing people...

It's time to think about time again, as we flip through the 1993 crop of wall calendars -- the gorgeous and the goofy, the exotic and the erotic, the politically correct and the anatomically correct.What, or who, do you want to stare at for 30 days at a clip? Claudia Schiffer? NFL bods? Aaaah-nuld? Outhouses? Cute cats? New England barns? New England seasons? New England's coastline? Scottish castles? Albert Einstein? Beer bottles?No problem.As for trends, artists are as hot as ever, and it looks like another banner year for Monet, Matisse, Georgia O'Keeffe (has anyone else seen one too many of her bawdy flowers?

And then the queen said ... Name-dropping doesn't get much better than that, does it? The queen of England, last in these parts in 1991, arrives in Virginia on Thursday - for the celebration of the 400th anniversary of Jamestown - offering a fresh opportunity to pick up a royal anecdote for your next cocktail party. The queen, courtesy of the movie The Queen and Oscar-winner Helen Mirren's sympathetic portrayal of the title character, is hot these days, having survived that tabloid-queen daughter-in-law of hers, Princess Diana, and, at 81, is still beloved by her subjects.

The massive Howard Stern media blitz is over, leaving in its wake remnant thoughts about what New Yorker writer David Remnick cleverly calls "over-the-counter counterculture," or the mainstreaming of edginess. Does a pop phenomenon -- Howard Stern, alternative rock, Courtney Love, the nodding-out-on-heroin look, "independent" movie-making -- remain edgy once it has been mass-packaged and presold? And if a healthy, lip-jobbed Courtney Love is making Oscar presentations, and Howard Stern has topped the box-office list, who will become the new rebels?

Washington -- A few things you should know right off about Scoop Cohen:First of all, he was Bill Clinton's first choice for running mate -- at least for a day. Second, he saved candidate Clinton's presidental campaign from ruin. Sort of. And, finally, he was 22 years old when all this happened.Of course, he's older now, this red-headed, political stealth weapon who in October of 1991 came out of nowhere -- well, actually, out of Pikesville -- to become a part of Bill Clinton's fledgling campaing team.
