News at Eleven (Back Page): I also remember gazing up

a photo in her kitchen, displayed high on the wall. Janet Lewis followed my gaze, and asked, "Do you recognize who that is?"  I didn't.  "That's Emily Dickinson, grown up."  It was a matchless photo, attentive and sensual.  She told me it was included in the Richard Sewall biography of the poet, and that she had torn it out from the book and put it on her wall.

from Stanford University: Book Haven: No, no, this is the real Emily Dickinson. . .more photos, more theories
then Big Think: A New Photo of Emily Dickinson? Well--Maybe--
then Amherst College: "The world is not acquainted with us":Emily Dickinson and Kate Scott Turner
