The photos in question were taken of Jobs shortly after he left Apple in 1985. As Menuez puts it:
“These were some of Steve’s toughest years as he attempted to launch the NeXT computer, a powerful workstation that he hoped would transform education. He said he hoped it would allow a “Stanford student to cure cancer in his dorm.” It failed, but ultimately Steve prevailed because the NeXTStep operating system was a decade ahead of the competition and Apple bought it in 1996, giving Steve a seat on the board of his old company. It was the start of his tremendous comeback.
Prices start at $225 for an 8.5 x 11 inch unframed print and range up to $1,275 for a 13 x 19 inch framed print, including shipping. This week, all prints on the site are also 30% off with the promo code “launch”.
There are eight images of Jobs in total, taken between 1986 and 1988, showing Steve with the original NeXT Computer prototype, Jobs celebrating a visit to the NeXT factory, and more. Menuez also offers other tech prints, in addition to its Steve Jobs collection.
Personally, I’m a huge fan of Doug’s work – being a lover of both black and white documentary photography and the technological world of the 1980s and 90s. I’ve written about his work before to celebrate the launch of his delivered Fearless Genius: The Digital Revolution in Silicon Valley 1985-2000.
