This iconic photograph of late Apple Computer founder and CEO Steve Jobs was shot by New York-based Scottish photographer Albert Watson. The image was used in the book cover design of Walter Isaacson’s best-selling 2011 biography of Jobs. The photo was part of a recent retrospective exhibition of Watson’s photography career at the Deichtorhallen museum’s Haus Der Photographie in Hamburg, Germany.
The view looking south out a rounded window of the new super-contemporary architectural extension to the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. From this window, one can see the Museumplein, a vast lawn criss-crossed with paths for bikes and pedestrians. On the far side is the southern part of the Museumkwatier, an upscale area that’s home to many consulates (the U.S. consulate can be seen at the left in the picture).
