Steve Jobs To Be Inducted Into International Photography Hall Of Fame

Does he deserve it? I guess so; it wouldn’t be crazy to say that Jobs and the iPhone made photography vastly more accessible to manyآ—although he should probably get some points off for inadvertently spearheading selfies.

Steve Jobs will be posthumously inducted into its Hall of Fame in St. Louis, Missouri, which recognizes the work of pioneers, artists, and innovators who have pushed photography forward. Jobs will be one of eight new inductees on October 28, alongside Photoshop co-creators John Knoll and Thomas Knoll, documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, photographers Ernst Haas and Annie Leibovitz, singer-songwriter and digital photographer Graham Nash, and documentary photographer Sebastiأ£o Salgado. Jobs' induction is closely linked to the iPhone, which Apple in the past has described as the world's most popular camera.
