“Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage” at Smithsonian


Annie Leibovitz, world renowned photographer says she has come back from some dark days and revived her creativity. This is in the form of a new photography project which is now on view at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. This is different from her popular celebrity portraits.

Two years ago, Leibovitz faced millions in debt and a mismanaged fortune that nearly cost her legal rights to some of her most memorable images. Leibovitz led a tour through the photos which renewed her inspiration.

The images in “Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage” show landscapes and people but no faces. Leibovitz photographed historic scenes and objects, including the homes of Elvis Presley and essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson.

The show is on view through May 20.
