PHOTO MASTERS: STEV McCARRY REPORT PHOTOGRAPHY

Steve McCurry (Steve McCurry) – one of the best photographers in the world, a recognized reporter, master of color and composition. As a reportage photographer, he adheres to the tactics of waiting. According to Steve, “if you wait, people will forget about the camera in your hands and reveal the soul.”
Steve has won numerous international awards, including the most prestigious in a photographic environment, such as the World Press Photo and Robert Capa’s Gold Medal. Not a single major edition of the world has done without McCurry’s photographs, and today his portrait and reportage works are considered the best story about life in conflict zones (Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, etc.).
Interesting facts from Steve McCurry’s biography:
In his youth, McCarry planned to enter the cinematography department, but eventually he graduated from the university with a degree in theatrical art.
He prefers to shoot on film, although he uses not only film cameras, but also digital cameras.
One of the first to capture the conflict of the Soviet Union and Afghanistan. Returning from the military zone, he sewed dozens of films into his clothes and crossed the border. The photos gained world fame, and for his report the author was awarded the Gold Medal of Robert Capa, which is awarded to photographers who have shown particular courage.
The most famous portrait of a photographer – a portrait of an Afghan girl – was shot in a refugee camp near Peshawar, Pakistan.
The photo became a legend of the National Geographic magazine (for the first time it appeared on the cover of the 1985 issue). The identity of the girl remained unknown until 2002, until the National Geographic team managed to find a woman 17 years later. Then Steve shot her second portrait:
In an attempt to capture the events of September 11, 2001 (aftermath of the terrorist attack at the World Trade Center, New York), Steve secretly made his way through the cordon, which caused him to conflict with the police. Despite the lack of permission, he still managed to remove the report.
Portraits of the author – a separate and most of his portfolio. People from any country, any nationality look from these photos with a sincere and genuine look. Undoubtedly, one can feel the photographer’s ability to select the necessary light and skillfully fit a person into his surroundings.
In addition to reports and portraits, McCurry has excellent compositional etudes, impressive for their brightness, unique work with color and light, as well as a sense of plastics – the ability to notice and capture the shape of the human body or an inanimate object so that the viewer would like to view it for a very long time.
This entry presents selected photos of the author. The rest of his work can be viewed on the official website, in the Image Galleries section.
