Capturing the authentic beauty
of the world
Steve was a natural choice for us. His unique ability to capture what is left of the authentic beauty and truth in the world, and express it with clarity and emotion is just brilliant. A McCurry image not only takes you on a journey, it changes you forever.
Perhaps it was Steve’s friend, the travel writer Paul Theroux, who best summed it up when he said, “It is impossible to see a Steve McCurry photograph and not wish to be there”.
Chief Marketing Officer, Silversea
Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than 30 years. His work spans conflicts, vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary culture alike - yet always retains the human element that made his celebrated image of the Afghan Girl such a powerful image. McCurry has been recognised with some of the most prestigious awards in the industry, including the Robert Capa Gold Medal, the National Press Photographers Award, and four first prize awards from the World Press Photo contest.
Travels with Steve
A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2007 Bordeaux is its own eponymous attraction. Captured through McCurry’s masterful lens, there can be few more graceful sights in France than the the fusion of urban and country as portrayed in the following gallery of images.VIEW THE STORY
St. Petersburg, Russia
Capturing the rare slices of life when we are unaware is what Steve McCurry excels at. Always curious, he delved deep into St. Petersburg's heritage, and looked beyond the pastel-fronted buildings and hordes of tourists to uncover the unguarded moments.VIEW THE STORY
Santorini: the name alone makes you travel. This tiny Greek island may be a tourist hotspot but as ever, Steve shows his mastery in uncovering the authentic beauty that still permeates through the ancient walls and streets. You just need his eyes to see it.VIEW THE STORY
Northern Europe: Ireland, Denmark, Norway
Think of windswept moors, craggy coastlines and millennia of culture and we bet you have just thought of Northern Europe. Add to that one master photographer, some legendary hospitality and swathes of natural beauty and you have a recipe for some fantastic photography!VIEW THE STORY
Let us set the scene … almost four decades ago, a young reporter travelled to India for the very first time. Little did he know that this would be the beginning of an enduring love affair, and result in over 30 visits, each time finding a new layer to peel off.VIEW THE STORY
Bhutan, or more specifically the Kingdom of Bhutan, is to peace what neighbouring India is to chaos. Holding a special place in Steve’s heart, he has returned many times to the landlocked country, yet the mystery and magic weaved their charm as if it was his first time.VIEW THE STORY
If ever there was a bucket list destination on earth, Easter Island has got to be it. So, in Silversea’s continuous quest for discovering the authentic beauty of the world, we decided to send Steve McCurry to see the mythic Moais in February 2018.VIEW THE STORY
