Although not a personal favorite, I can appreciate an artist and their craft. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to hear Annie Leibovitz speak at the Corcoran this past Sunday. Offering insight and personal antedotes related to her book, Pilgrimage, I enjoyed the lecture and have more respect and interest in her and her work. An accompanying exhibit, to the book, is at the SAAM and now I'm interested to view it knowing the feelings and process behind some of the portraits. Not the typical celebrity portraits, the images are raw. Although at the end of the lecture she showed some of her most recent celebrity shots and offered some hilarious stories related to a shoot with Lady GaGa.
