WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- In front of the camera Thursday morning, photographer Annie Leibovitz took media on a preview tour of her new exhibit at the Norton Museum.
Thirty-nine of the portrait photographer's pieces are currently on display to the public.
Leibovitz has frequently photographed famous faces like John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Whoopie Goldberg and Steve Martin, but the Norton's pieces strike a somewhat deeper tone.
Leibovitz said she is humbled and grateful for how the curator, Charles Stainback, assembled the pieces.
"Thinking about its legacy and its next place, and the Norton already has a great photography collection so I am very proud to be part of that," she said.
The museum acquired the pieces that display the photographer's insight into her subjects.
"The process is different every time," she said. "I think it has a lot to do with how much time we have, where we are. You know, what's possible. You know, who is the person. I would like to think that the photographs have a lot to do with what the person does. You know, not who they are in their celebrity."
One piece shows artist Leonardo DiCaprio with a swan draped around his neck. She said DiCaprio's intuitive ability to work with animals made the animal respond in the unique way.
When asked what she plans to do next, she laughed.
"The assignment work is extremely consuming and I have three young children, so there is enough to do. There is enough to do," she said.
The Leibovitz exhibit will be on display at the Norton Museum until June 9, 2013.
