Steve McCurry, the photographer of the world famous “Afghan Girl” is one of the best photojournalists that the humankind has ever seen. He does not simply photograph the world, he photographs people, in a world that seems, many times, unfriendly and unwelcoming. Steve McCurry is not an artist. He is The Artist. If photography was not already considered an art, steve McCurry would have made the entire Earth change its mind.
As you could easily understand, I am an admirer of his work. Steve McCurry captured humanity in us by means of these photos and used it as a central piece of his art. Can you see the soul of these people by looking at these astonishing photos? Can you notice the struggles of this world in his work? It is exactly in his deep connection with his subject that the genius of Steve McCurry lies.
There are not enough words to describe these pictures, so I will say nothing more, and leave you to enjoy the amazing work of a living legend of photography: Steve McCurry.
