One of the world's most famous portrait photographers, Annie Leibovitz here presents a brilliant album of very different portraits. She journeyed to the places marked by some of her own heroes—Emily Dickinson, Henry David Thoreau, Abraham Lincoln, Marian Anderson, Georgia O'Keeffe, Elvis Presley, Annie Oakley, Pete Seeger, Ansel Adams, Julia Margaret Cameron, and a dozen others—and portrayed them in what they had left behind. Leibovitz gives us some 80 double-page photographs (with numerous smaller images and a 25-inch-long gatefold photo), inviting us to immerse ourselves in the worlds of these remarkable people, as well as in spiritually resonant places like Niagara Falls, Gettysburg, Monticello, and Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House.

"The view from the window of the greenhouse where Virginia Woolf wrote her novels, Thomas Jefferson's vegetable garden at Monticello, an etching copied onto the walls of the Alcott family home in Massachusetts by May Alcott (the inspiration for Amy in Little Women) scale down our perception of these large personalities to intensely human dimensions and draw us into the intimate texture of their lives.... Leibovitz has produced a book without people, and yet portraits are everywhere on its pages, and in them a profound sense of life's bold fragility and art's imperfect beauty."—Vogue

"Gazing at the traces left behind by her favorite artists, traces of their lives, their creature habits, Ms. Leibovitz finds something to nurture all of us—something about integrity, staying true to a vision. She forges a connection to the past that informs the way she is moving forward."—NYTimes
