i Portrait Steve Jobs by Albert Watson
There are portraits and then are PORTRAITS. Contemplative; inspiring - a collaboration between photographer and subject - Albert Watson, a photographer whose work I greatly admire for his portraiture made this classic portrait of Steve Jobs - founder of Apple. It is now apart of the visual vocabulary of our times. It speaks to timelessness - a moment and forever - engaging - interesting - even though many have tried, some nail and others only copy the iconic work of Richard Avedon's portraits of people on a simple white background. It's an interesting story of an image that has taken on a life of it's own and yet has become public domain as what represented such a creative genius who change our world as creatives and photographers.
