Behind the scenes

St. Petersburg, Russia

To say that St. Petersburg is lovely would be an understatement. It’s beyond beautiful. It’s alternately opulent and grand, elegant then imperial. And, despite having visited many times in the past, it still held some stories that master photographer Steve McCurry felt he needed to tell.

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”.
