The impulse to doAMERICAN MUSIC, writes famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, “came from a desire to return to my original subject and look at it with a mature eye. Bring my experience to it…make it a real American tapestry.” Her ambitious idea becameAMERICAN MUSIC, a stunning collection of photographs of the musicians, places and people that enrich the landscape of American music.AsRolling Stone’schief photographer for over thirteen years, Leibovitz created a legendary body of work.

Even though I had little recognition of many of the performers in this collection Leibovitz’s portraits are, as always, stunning. I fully expected this book to house examples of the photographer’s range of music-themed portraits and concert photography, but I was surprised upon reading the introduction to discover that this collection is actually a re-exploration of the theme after she stepped away from the music scene many years ago. Instead of containing images from her days at the helm of Rolling Stone magazine’s photography department, she explores folk music, the Deep South, and the roots of American music. This unfortunately didn’t give me much context for the images, since I don’t really connect with that genre of music (or it’s players, besides maybe some basic name recognition), but I still enjoyed perusing this highly personal project.
