Sometimes, though, it can take a couple of thousand words to do full justice to a picture. This month’s cover photograph of Jessye Norman, the 12th Glenn Gould Prize Laureate, was taken by Annie Leibovitz in 1988, and titled at the time “Jessye Norman (singing), New York City.” But, interestingly, that’s not what the cutline to the image we created the cover from says.
