The Life and Work of Steve Jobs in Photographs

3

October 16 was declared as ‘Steve Jobs Day’. Let’s take a look at the work of one of the greatest visionaries and innovators of our time…

You know the man. You know his inventions. You’re probably reading this article using one of his products. He has done a lot of things that improved the way we live. And he has gone a long way. We have decided to chronicle his life and some of his work through a series of photos we’ve scoured on the internet.

1974-1980

The early years of Apple. The company that he co-founded with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. It was in this period that they invented and released the Apple I, Apple II, as well as the ill-fated Apple III.

1981-1985

The Apple Lisa and the Macintosh were released. This was a tough time for Apple as the new computers had poor sales due to high price tags and limited software titles. It was also in this period when Steve Jobs had a power struggle in the company resulting in him resigning from Apple.

1986-1994

NeXT Generation. Shortly after resigning from Apple, Steve founded a new company called NeXT Computers which was aimed at the scientific, financial, and academic communities. It was more powerful and technologically advanced.

1995-1999

Back in 1986, Steve Jobs bought the Graphics group from Lucasfilms’ computer graphics division and later named it Pixar. They contracted with Disney to produce a number of computer animated feature films. The first one was Toy Story. This brought fame and critical acclaim to the studio. In the next 15 years, they moved on to produce the other Pixar box-office hits that we all know and love. It was also in this time period that Apple bought NeXT Computers thus, bringing Steve back to Apple becoming it’s Interim chief executive in 1997 and restructured the company’s product line.

2000-2003

Steve drops the ‘interim’ title and officially becomes CEO (or iCEO) of Apple. He unveiled and released a series of new products. Most notably, the iPod. The portable music player that changed it all. It was also in late 2003 that he was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer.

2004-2006

On a roll, Steve released an army of mini products like the iPod mini, Mac mini, iPod shuffle, and the iPod nano as well as the new Intel powered iMac and Macbook Pro. Pixar also became part of Disney in early 2006.

2007-2010+

Apple Computer became Apple, Inc. He was inducted to the California Hall of Fame by Governor Schwartzenegger in 2007. During the course of the these years, Steve Jobs introduced the Apple TV, iPhone, Macbook Air, and the iPad. He resigned as Apple’s CEO in August of 2011.

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.

    The Art of Picture Taking: An Interview with Filmmaker Catherine Dauphin

We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form.
