Product Description

Review

"This retrospective presents large-format versions of the penetrating portraits and other scenes that McCurry has taken around the world, particularly Southeast Asia, over the last thirty years." - The New York Times Book Review, February 2013

"The Iconic Photographs collects over 150 images from McCurry's illustrious career -- soulful portraits, vivacious street scenes, and beautiful landscapes. . .More than a collection of images, the book acts as a portal into the lives of the people he met and the distant lands they inhabit. McCurry's work reveals his ability to seamlessly move between worlds, from one cultural sphere to another, avidly documenting the human experience with an astute, keen eye." - Resource Magazine, October 2012

"McCurry can make the hellish look heavenly -- incredible photographs that change the way we look at our world - - haunting and provocative images." - The Sunday Times Magazine, June 2005

"Theses beautiful and uplifting images, in finest documentary tradition, cross the boundaries of language and culture to capture the significant and the smaller stories of mankind." - Daily Telegraph, July 2005

"All the photographs for this edition are perfect compositions and the book is a must for anyone interested in appreciating the natural beauty of Asian and color travel photography." - Tribune, September 2005

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 twenty years ago. His remarkable coverage won him the Robert Capa Gold Medal, which is awarded to photographers who exhibit exceptional courage and enterprise. Famous also for his work in Southeast Asia, McCurry's photographs are beautiful, uplifting and affecting. McCurry is a regular contributor to many international journals including National Geographic magazine and is a member of the prestigious agency Magnum Photos.

This book is large, print size is amazing and quality of prints is nice. A nice collection of most famous shots of Steve's, only complaint I have is I wish it was 1 inch smaller so it could properly be on my bookshelf.
