Pilgrimage by Annie Leibovitz


Pilgrimage is a journal of a personal journey with close up observations of a number of historical and natural wonders. Renowned photographer, Annie Leibovitz takes us with her, starting at Emily Dickinson's house in Amherst, Massachusetts and continuing on to Niagara Falls with her children. She's not on assignment, just taking pictures of places and things that interest her. She visits Thoreau's cabin at Walden Pond, Ralph Waldo Emerson's home and Orchard House as well as the Isle of Wight. Two photos stood out for me; that of Virginia Woolf's writing table and also a shot of Sigmund Freud's couch. From Lincoln's bloodstained gloves to Marion Anderson's concert dress, to a hole in the bedcover in Georgia O'Keeffe's home, surely with access not ordinarily available, you'll find something of interest as well.
