Annie's Pilgrimage

  Excitable me here! The other day I visited a bookshop with a gift card in hand. It has been a while since I last bought a book so I was looking forward to my little splurge. What with my burgeoning love of photography it was little wonder that I chose this book - Pilgrimage by Annie Leibovitz.
    As the title implies the book covers Annie's pilgrimage, over the years, to the homes of people that interested her. This photographic essay is part history lesson [but not the boring kind] with a personalised account. I am seeing the homes of Virginia Woolf and Emily Dickinson [to name a few] through the camera and personal senses of Annie. This book is a treat.
