San Jose Museum of Art announces Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage

Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage charts a new direction for one of America’s best-known living photographers. Unlike her staged and carefully lit portraits made on assignment for magazines and for advertising clients, 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. Included are landscapes both dramatic and quiet, interiors of living rooms and bedrooms, and objects that are talismans of past lives.

The exhibition, which includes approximately 70 photographs taken between April 2009 and May 2011, will be on view at the San Jose Museum of Art from June 6, 2013, through September 8, 2013. www.v
