Most recently, the Royal Photographic Society in London awarded McCurry the Centenary Medal for Lifetime Achievement and in 2019, McCurry was inducted into the International Photography Hall of Fame.
“No other image in my memory is so immediately recognizable and loved by such a large number of people across the globe,” Sarah Leen, National Geographic’s director of photography, “We are proud of that image and other iconic photographs that Steve created while on assignment for us.”
The biggest and most comprehensive volume on Steve McCurry published to date and the final word on forty years of McCurry’s incredible work. The book brings together all of McCurry’s key adventures and influences. Totalling over 350 images, the selection of photographs includes his best-known shots as well as over 100 previously unpublished images. Also included are personal notes, telegrams and visual ephemera from his travels and assignments.
ImagineAsia has established the Young Women’s Photography Initiative in many cities in Afghanistan.
The goal of the program is to give students the opportunity to document their communities by giving them the tools to create their own art. Through their cameras, students learn to see their communities in new ways. The students’ photos portray universal themes and reflect the resiliency of their culture, which gives them a powerful voice.
That is something I always enjoyed doing, but now I am sure I understand much better how to do it. If I had three words to describe this workshop to summarize it, that would be: learning, practising, and getting a lot of feedback to improve on what I love doing”.
