Menuez's project, Fearless Genius, began in 1985 with Steve Jobs as Jobs was starting over after losing a boardroom battle and leaving Apple. In an extraordinary act of trust, Jobs allowed Menuez special access to photograph him as he built a new company, NeXT, and a powerful new supercomputer that Jobs hoped would transform education. Once Silicon Valley heard that Jobs had granted Menuez complete access, everyone did. He spent time photographing more than seventy other leading companies and innovators, including Intel’s Gordon Moore and Andy Grove, Adobe’s John Warnock, and Sun Microsystems’ Bill Joy. Menuez continued working through the Internet boom of the 1990s.To register, click HERE
