Time stopped everything Wednesday night to rush out a special Steve Jobs commemorative issue.
The editors are using a shot of the Apple head posed cross-legged with a Macintosh computer in his lap.
It’s a revealing image of the famously private man.
On Time’s excellent Lightbox Tumblr, photographer Norman Seeff explains how the shot came about:
We were just sitting, talking about creativity and everyday stuff in his living room. I was beginning to build a level of intimacy with him, and then he rushed off, and came back in and plopped down in that pose. He spontaneously sat down with a Macintosh in his lap. I got the shot the first time. We did do a few more shots later on, and he even did a few yoga poses—he lifted his leg and put it over his shoulder—and I just thought we were two guys hanging out, chatting away, and enjoying the relationship. It wasn’t like there was a conceptualization here—this was completely off the cuff, spontaneity that we never thought would become a magazine image.
