As with so many discoveries, it all started with a trip: a backpacking trip—through India, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Since then, photographerSteve McCurry has been portraying and documenting life on the planet. His art is both fascinating and touching.
The most diverse countries of this world have already passed in front of his lens. He has received countless prizes and awards for his work in recent years, but all beginnings are a struggle.
He talks to Jonathan about long nights in the darkroom, the magic of finding the right subject, the highlights of his job and a special trip with BMW through Scotland.
Look forward to a conversation with perhaps the most important visual storyteller of the time. Come and see for yourself!
