The New-York Historical Society is featuring the work of a renowned photographer’s creative eye and unique cultural perspective in Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage.  The exhibit is on view at the New-York Historical  from November 21, 2014 through February 22, 2015 marking the final stop on the national tour of Pilgrimage, organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Pilgrimage charts a new direction for Annie Leibovitz, one of America’s  best-known living photographers.  Unlike her staged and carefully lit portraits made on assignment for magazines and advertising clients, the photographs in this exhibition were taken simply because Leibovitz was moved by the subject.  The exhibit features more than 70 photographs that evoke historical figures—Ralph Waldo Emerson, Eleanor Roosevelt, Georgia O’Keeffe, Marian Anderson, Robert Smithson, and Elvis Presley, among others—through landscapes, interiors of houses, and objects.
