The brilliant American Magnum photographer Steve McCurry has travelled so widely, he could have produced a great monograph on almost any continent. Yet, in his latest Phaidon publication, he has chosen to focus on the country that he first visited as a 28-year-old photojournalist in 1978, and has since returned to over eighty times.

Steve McCurry: India explores the lives of everyday people in extraordinary settings through McCurry’s camera lens. This new portfolio of emotive and beautiful images features 48 previously unpublished photos, taken across the Indian subcontinent, along with images that have become well known across the globe.

Reproduced in a large format with captions, and an introductory essay by William Dalrymple, India features a range of colour pictures illustrating this most colourful of countries, capturing the lives of everyday people in extraordinary settings: from the Ganesh festival on Chowpatty beach in Mumbai to the Kolkata railway station at dawn to the flower markets of Kashmir and the streets of Old Delhi.

Later this week, on 18 November, an accompanying exhibition of McCurry’s India images will open at the Rubin Museum of Art, 150 West 17th Street, in Manhattan. Until then, you can appreciate this selection, above, and, if you like what you see, buy a copy of this beautifully produced and highly collectable new title here, and browse through our other McCurry books here.
