(AP) Annie Leibovitz, the photographer behind some of pop culture's most memorable images, has brought some of her latest work to Santa Fe.

The Pilgrimage exhibition opens Friday at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum.

Leibovitz has said the idea grew out of a book she had wanted to make with her partner, Susan Sontag, with a list of destinations and an excuse to visit them. After Sontag died, she eventually revived the idea with her young children.

Unlike Leibovitz's photographs of celebrities and rock stars, the images in the exhibition include landscapes and people, but no faces. She photographed the homes of essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson, entertainer Elvis Presley and painter Georgia O'Keeffe and places such as Niagara Falls, Walden Pond and Old Faithful.

There are about 70 photographs in the exhibition, all taken between April 2009 and May 2011.

The show opened at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. in 2012 and is traveling to museums around the country.
