Portraits Steve McCurry


Steve McCurry

A collection of unposed and engaging portraits from around the world, collected together in an engaging and strangley moving series of unique portraits. Unposed images of children, adolescents and adults that reveal the true universality of the depths of human emotion.

Steve McCurry never set out to take portraits. In 1985, he photographed an Afghan girl for the National Geographic, which is one of the most widly and consistently celebrated portraits in the history of contemporary photography.

Steve McCurry's career was launched in 1979 when he crossed the border from Pakistan into rebel-controlled Afghanistan just before the Russian invasion. This body of work won him the prestigious Robert Capa Gold Medal. A contributor to National Geographic for many years and a member of Magnum Photos since 1986, McCurry's images have become modern icons.

This book is a hardback with 512 pages, including 255 colour illustrations.
