Chelsea, NYC – HG Contemporary presents: Fearless Genius, a monumental photo exhibit showcasing 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.
