Between 2009 and 2011 Leibovitz diversified her work with Pilgrimage, a very personal project. She decided to choose individual subjects that held meaning for her, whether they were literal views of living spaces, sole objects, or landscapes. Leibovitz is a celebrated portrait photographer, but Pilgrimage contains no people – they are notes for portraits. In 2011, Hamiltons Gallery exhibited twenty-six works from the Pilgrimage series. This exhibition preceded the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s exhibition held in 2012, after which the museum acquired 64 works for its permanent collection.
