An evening with Doug Menuez: Fearless Genius: A Work in Progress Update

Doug Menuez spent 30 intense years traversing the globe after leaving art school for photojournalism, later becoming one of the most successful advertising photographers in the US. Starting at the Washington Post and then freelancing for Time, Newsweek, Life, Fortune, and People, he covered assignments ranging from the famine in Ethiopia, to sports and celebrities, to the AIDS crisis. His award-winning advertising commissions have allowed him to finance his personal fine art documentary work, including his books Heaven, Earth, Tequila: Un Viaje al Corazón de México, Transcendent Spirit: The Children of Uganda, and the recent Fearless Genius: The Digital Revolution in Silicon Valley 1985-2000, published by Simon & Schuster/Atria Books last year, with an correlating exhibition traveling worldwide since 2012, most recently at the Computer History Museum in Silicon Valley. Menuez’ archive was acquired by Stanford University Library.
