Annie Leibovitz began her career photographing the vibrant music scene of the 1960s. Now recognized as one of the premier portrait photographers in the world, she often still focuses her lens on musicians. American Music provided Leibovitz with the opportunity to represent icons and other influential performers of America?s traditional and popular music. Over the last decade, Leibovitz captured many of her subjects in their homes, cars, and churches, creating revealing and intimate portraits of over seventy American music legends.
American Music is accompanied by iPod listening stations with recordings of the musicians featured in the exhibition selected by Waterloo Records and Video, as well as an audio tour of the exhibition narrated by Annie Leibovitz.
