Annie Leibovitz celebrated her 63rd birthday a few days ago and also has a new show, "Annie Leibovitz: Master Set," that runs through the end of the year at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio. "Each photograph is kind of a landmark for me or a moment or a place, or represents not only someplace in cultural history but also in photography for me,” Leibovitz said in an interview. The 147 photos in the exibit includes shots of John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Mick Jagger, Hunter Thompson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Miles Davis, George W. Bush, the Obamas, Muhammad Ali and Queen Elizabeth II. Probably be well worth seeing even if it is on the campus of Ohio State University. Her Smithsonian curated "Pilgrimage" is also being shown in another gallery of the museum.
