Steve McCurry’s New Limited Edition Book

June 22, 2011

Phaidon Press have just released Steve McCurry: The Iconic Photographs, a stunning large-format, limited edition book that includes 165 of his most evocative and highly revered photographs. You can download the PDF here to find out more information.

Steve McCurry, the man behind the incredibly popular National Geographic cover photo ‘Afghan Girl’, is a remarkably gifted photographer and a huge inspiration to many, including myself. While studying film at university he began working as a staff photographer for the school newspaper. It was there that he became so “enamored with the still image” that his creative direction changed. He’s been travelling the world ever since and bringing cultures together through photography.

I’ve embedded a very insightful video below where McCurry provides stories behind some of his more memorable work.
