Presentation Description

Steve McCurry is one of the most well-known and respected photographers today. His work can be recognized internationally, even by those not immersed in the world of photography. A Philadelphia native, McCurry studied at Penn State University where he actually only took two fine arts photography classes. After leaving his job at a newspaper in the late 80s to explore and photograph India, McCurry has spent the past 4 decades across several continents capturing some of the most powerful photographs to be seen. Steve McCurry’s portfolio covers a wide range of subjects, however he is most well known for his poignant street portraits. I delve further into his portrait work and its effectiveness as well as his collection of photos entitled “The Simple Act of Waiting”.
