The idea of having Pitt take the photographs reportedly came from legendary fashion photographer Bruce Weber. He reportedly told the editorial staff of W magazine that the best pictures of Elizabeth Taylor were those taken by her husband Mike Todd.

"I was surprised that Brad accepted the challenge," says W Magazine's creative director Dennis Freedman of Pitt's enthusiastic response.

"Last time we collaborated, I was struck by his sensitivity to the subtleties of photography. I knew that he possessed a highly tuned critical eye and would be very demanding of himself. Still, I wasn't prepared for the beauty and intimacy of the images he made of Angelina and the children."

The photos can be seen on the magazine's website, wmagazine.com.
