Who We Are: Steve McCurry

Ahmet Sen

Steve McCurry is universally recognized as one of today’s finest image makers, and has won many of photography’s top awards. McCurry has photographed Afghanistan for thirty years and has a unique and intimate knowledge of the country.

Steve photographed the human consequences of war when the Soviets invaded in 1979, during the civil war, and the Taliban rule in the 1990’s. It is the kind and hospitable people that continue to draw Steve back to Afghanistan time and time again.
