Mastering our creative Process -Annie Leibovitz

Annie leibovitz explains the creative process beautifully here;

We talk about the creative process, about how to sustain it. “Talent is something anyone can have. It can go away. It needs to be nurtured, taken care of. The best thing about getting older is that you kind of know what you are doing — if you stick with something. It doesn’t get easier. But you get stronger. Pilgrimage is an exercise in taking care of what I do. My books are my way of being able to express myself completely.”

Annie Leibovitz

‘Pilgrimage’ is about more than the objects she photographed but objects of simplicity and integrity. When producing this project she was told not to do it because it would not make any money. But to Leibovitz it wasn’t about the money but the thirst to nurture her creative soul.
