Behind the scenes


Steve jumped at the chance to rediscover a city that he once loved. Although the walls of this amazing city cannot talk, McCurry’s pictures tell a thousand words.

Capturing the authentic beauty
of the world

Steve was a natural choice for us. He is a born storyteller with the soul of an explorer. 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”.
