DOUG MENUEZ'S SOLO EXHIBITION "FEARLESS GENUIS" IN MANHATTAN

Doug Menuez documented a unique time of American history, the beginning of Silicon Valley and the revolution it created. With unprecedented access to the inner circle, Menuez's "Fearless Genius" will be presented at HG Contemporary in Manhattan, after opening in Moscow at the Photobiennale in March 2012 and has been continuously traveling worldwide with exhibits in China, Spain, France, the UK, and most recently at the Computer History Museum in Silicon Valley, which set a record for attendance.

The monumental photo exhibit showcases a pivotal time in American & technological history. With exclusive access to Steve Jobs, during a time described as the ‘golden era’ of Silicon Valley, Doug’s collection of masterfully crafted images documented a niche of American entrepreneurs who were on a mission to change the world. From the creators of the smartphone to the visionaries behind making the internet accessible to everyone, this era altered the course of humanity’s evolution.

Doug’s anthropological study fostered a profound understanding into the daunting, magical, and excessive human beings who were critical in altering our perceptions of reality through the development of their tech dreams. Doug’s eye highlights the fortitude of what is achievable when a group of individuals share a collective mission. The result is an unforgettable exhibition of photos that will be studied by generations to follow. Notable influencers featured in Fearless Genuis include: Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, David Hockey, Bill Clinton, John Sculley, Ross Perot, Susan Kare, Russel Brown, and Bill Joy.

Doug Menuez is a craftsman of human observance. His photographs evoke a wide spectrum of emotions with more than 30 years of creating art through his documentation of cultures worldwide. Doug’s commissions range from Hollywood faces such as Charlize Theron and Robert Redford to Mother Tereza and Presidents Clinton and Bush Sr.

Menuez’s work has been praised by industry and peers alike with honorable mentions and awards via The Cannes Festival, The Epson Creativity Award and the international photography awards.
