Photography Of Steve McCurry

There are few photographers out there as well-known as the iconic Steve McCurry. His Afghan Girl portrait (above) earned him world-wide fame and recognition, but all of his work — from the most iconic to the largely unseen — speaks to his uncanny eye for capturing emotion and composing portraits that are second to none.

McCurryBorn in a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; McCurry studied film at Pennsylvania State University, before going on to work for a local newspaper. After several years of freelance work, he made his first of what would become many trips to the Indian subcontinent, travelling with little more than a bag of clothes and another of film, exploring the land with his camera.
