Jessye Norman


“One moment she was a disciplined goddess and diva, adept at creating before my camera the illusion of imposing majesty befitting the operatic heroines she portrays. The next, relaxed and at rest between photographs, she was disarmingly girlish, enthusiastic, and free of prima donna pretense. She spoke of her magnificent voice almost as a separate entity - a unique God-given gift - to be cared for, protected, and, when necessary, mollified.”
