Steve McCurry

Steve McCurry (b. 1950) was born in a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; he studied film at Pennsylvania State University, before going on to work for a local newspaper. He traveled across India with his camera, crossing the border into Pakistan, where he met a group of refugees from Afghanistan who smuggled him across the border just as the Russian Invasion was closing the country to all western journalists. While embedded with the Mujahideen, McCurry brought the world the first images of the conflict in Afghanistan. He has published over a dozen books and has had countless exhibitions around the world.
