Steve McCurry Biography

Photographer Steve McCurry is best known for his evocative colour images, many of which have become modern icons. He captures the essence of human struggle and joy and has covered many areas of international and civil conflict, including Burma, Sri Lanka, Beirut, Cambodia, the Philippines, the Gulf War, the former Yugoslavia, and continuing coverage of Afghanistan and Tibet. He focuses on the human consequences of war, not only showing what war impresses on the landscape, but also on the human face.
