Thoughts on Annie Leibovitz's book "At Work"

So reading the book raised a I need to be looking at famous photographers' work? Annie references her influences like I should know who they are, or what she's talking about.

Could you live here??? | This man is on my mind

As we made our way underneath the tracks to the bottom side of the station I noticed from a dark area behind it, a hand waving. I politely waved back, and then I'm approached by a man asking if we're with the Courier-Journal (the Louisville paper, and we're not).
