A member of Magnum Photos since 1986, Steve McCurry has been recognized with a wide array of top awards. This collection features many iconic photographs from his travels throughout the world. A sensitive observer, he captures those unique instants that transcend the everyday. With a mix of landscapes, portraits, and street scenes, he documents his surroundings with tenderness and vitality. His evocative–and sometimes dreamlike– color photography highlights the joys and despair of the human condition. Keenly composed, these images have exquisite texture and form. His work offers philosophical insights that take us far away from our own realities and preconceptions.
