Annie Leibovitz’s portraits of Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson have received mixed reactions online — with some detractors accusing the legendary photographer of not knowing how to take pictures of black women.

Leibovitz, 72, on Tuesday tweeted two shots she snapped of the newest member of the high court’s liberal bloc posing at the Lincoln Memorial for a Vogue Magazine photo shoot.

Many reactions to the pictures of the first black woman on the Supreme Court were positive, but a vocal faction of repliers claimed that Leibovitz did not use proper lighting.
