Descriptive Summary

Creator - pht: Leibovitz, Annie, 1949-
Title: Annie Leibovitz photographs
Dates [inclusive]: 2009-2011
Abstract: The Annie Leibovitz photographs held in this collection are among those shown in the exhibition Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage at the New-York Historical Society from November 21, 2014 - February 22, 2015. The prints owned by N-YHS were not in the exhibition as other versions of the same images were on display. These photographs are unlike her staged and carefully lit portraits made on assignment for magazines and advertising clients, which she is known for. The photographs in this exhibition were taken simply because Leibovitz was moved by the subject. The images speak in a commonplace language to the photographer's curiosity about the world she inherited, spanning landscapes both dramatic and quiet, interiors of living rooms and bedrooms, and objects that are talismans of past lives.
