Randal Lane of Forbes writes:

"The cover was shot dozens of times in advance using stand-ins to ensure perfect lighting and focus when the actual subjects arrived. When they did, it was a magic. $126 billion of personal net worth, incredible business achievement — and a desire to change the world on a massive scale. It was a moment of business and philanthropic history — and a photo for the ages."
