Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage

8 December 2011 - 20 January 2012

Annie Leibovitz's Pilgrimage project took her to places that she could explore with no agenda. She wasn't on assignment. She chose the subjects simply because they meant something to her. Leibovitz is a celebrated portraitist, but the Pilgrimage photographs have no people in them. They are notes for portraits.

 

In 2011 Hamiltons exhibited twenty-six works from the series, which was Leibovitz's first purely digital project. Highlights included Sigmund Freud's Couch, Freud Museum, 20 Maresfield Gardens, London 2009, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, 2009 and Georgia O'Keeffe's Pastels, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and Research Center, Santa Fe, New Mexico, 2010.

 

"This exhibition is a significant departure from the kind of work for which Annie is world renowned and the first opportunity to discover a new aspect of this modern master.", Tim Jefferies.

 

The exhibition was accompanied by the launch of the book Pilgrimage, published by Jonathan Cape, The Random House Group.
