Are Annie Leibovitz's Photos of the This Is Us Cast High Art or a Country Album Cover? - via Tvguide
Annie Leibovitz is an American institution; her instantly recognizable style of photography, often of larger-than-life figures like Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen and Queen Elizabeth II, made her a star at Vanity Fair and her work has been in the best museums in the world.

There isn’t much to be said about these two. The season two premiere didn’t show much of their relationship progressing.
