ABOUT THE BOOK

This extensive portfolio contains the only comprehensive collection of the unrivalled portraits by Steve McCurry, known and loved the world over for his beautiful and enduring images of the landscapes and cultures of South and Southeast Asia. The collection includes the most iconic as well as previously unknown portraits of the most remarkable faces he has encountered whilst travelling throughout the world, collected together in an engaging and moving series of unique street portraits: unposed, unstylized images of people that reveal the true universality of the depths of human emotion.

An intriguing collection of unposed and engaging colour portraits of people from all backgrounds and corners of the globe, this book offers a world-wide look at real people from places as diverse as Yemen, Mali, Niger, the USA, India, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Myanmar (Burma), France and the former Yugoslavia; unstylized portraits of children, adolescents and adults from all walks of life that reveal humanity's commonality as well as the variety of our personal adornment. Including the famous 'Afghan Girl' photograph, and equally memorable images ranging from a bejewelled Indian bride to a Paraguayan cowboy, Steve McCurry Portraits features nearly 250 photographs in all.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Steve McCurry (b.1950) launched his career as a photojournalist when, disguised in native garb, he crossed the Pakistan border into Afghanistan over thirty years ago. His remarkable coverage won him the Robert Capa Gold Medal. McCurry’s photographs are beautiful, uplifting and affecting. A regular contributor to many international journals, including National Geographic magazine, McCurry is a member of Magnum Photos and a recipient of an unprecedented four World Press Photo first prizes in a single year; many of McCurry’s images have since become modern icons.
