The Most Beautiful Photos of Steve McCurry

Steve McCurry – American journalist, author of the famous photos of the “Afghan girl,” which brought him worldwide fame, appearing on the cover of National Geographic magazine back in 1985. He spent 30 years and changed 20 passports, traveling and taking off amazing shots in various parts of the world. In September of this year there is a new photography book, “The Untold from Steve McCurry: The stories behind the pictures,” which includes entries from his diaries and photos of Steve’s at work. In honor of this event, we have compiled the most vibrant and colorful work of Steve McCurry from around the world.

Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than thirty years, with scores of magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name. Born 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, McCurry made his first of what would become many trips to India. Traveling with little more than a bag of clothes and another of film, he made his way across the subcontinent, exploring the country with his camera.

“What is important to my work is the individual picture. I photograph stories on assignment, and of course they have to be put together coherently. But what matters most is that each picture stands on its own, with its own place and feeling.” – Steve McCurry
