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”.

Steve McCurry

Steve McCurry

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.
