If you live in or around Washington D.C. or plan on traveling there anytime between now and September 7th, you might consider making a quick stop at the National Portrait Gallery. A new limited-run exhibit entitled American Cool features images of American icons at their slyest moments, including the late Steve Jobs.

Jobs finds his place among other legends, from Jimi Hendrix to Madonna. In his portrait, which was captured by Charles O’Rear for National Geographic (see original) in 1981, the Apple founder is riding a classic motorcycle, hair swept back  by the wind as the background blurs around him (very iOS 7, am I right?).

I think we can all agree that Steve Jobs was a pretty cool cat. His legacy remains in the DNA of dozens of gadgets that have gone on to define ‘cool’ in today’s society. From the iPod to the iPhone, Jobs’ eye for style with substance has been unmatched in the tech industry.

Apple fan or photography enthusiast, American Cool definitely seems like a must for anyone interested in pop culture.
