Steve McCurry

Steve McCurry was born in 1950 in Philadelphia and studied at the College of Arts and Architecture at Pennsylvania State University. After a two years employment at an american newspaper agency he quitted his job to work as a freelancer. His first aim to travel was India which offered him a wide range of subjects for an intimate photo documentary. It is the waiting and observing attitude of the photographer which reveals the soul of an object in the picture and which fades out the effects of the focusing camera. The calmness in the pictures invites the viewer to rest and to think about what he’s looking at.
