A Pilgrimage For Annie Leibovitz

Photographer Annie Leibovitz started shooting celebrity portraits for Rolling Stone in 1970, and today she regularly shoots the covers for magazines like Vanity Fair and Vogue. After the loss of her partner, Susan Sontag, and a significant financial upheaval , Leibovitz needed to get out of the studio. She wanted to shoot whatever she liked, whenever she liked. Traveling to a series of historic locations, including Emily Dickinson's house, Thoreau's cabin, and Virginia Woolf's writing room, she photographed objects and places. The photos, lit only by natural light, show us a very different side of Leibovitz's work.  Guest host Phoebe Judge traveled to Concord, Massachusetts to ask Leibovitz about her new collection, Pilgrimage.
