STEVE MCCURRY ICONS
The exhibition of the great photographer at Villa Mussolini
One of the greatest masters of contemporary photography is Steve Mccurry, a point of reference for a very large audience, especially young people, who recognize in his photographs a way of looking at our time.
Many of his images have become true icons, known all over the world, starting with the Sharbat Gula, the Afghan girl who some consider the Mona Lisa of our time.
Steve McCurry's lens was able to collect images of great poetry even in places in the world where life is more difficult, but there is no lack of the most terrible shots, which document the war, violence and atrocities of which, unfortunately, the humanity knows how to play a leading role and that McCurry has documented, from the Twin Towers photographed from his studio in New York to the Gulf War, from the war in Afghanistan to Japan after the tsunami, from child soldiers to the pain of hospitals.
Born in Philadelphia in 1950, Steve McCurry immediately began collaborating as a photographer with a local newspaper. Three years later, he decides to travel to India, where he passes by Pakistan and then to Afghanistan where he makes his first extraordinary reportage. Since then he has worked with some of the most important magazines: Life, Time, Geo, Newsweek and National Geographic. With a career of over forty years he has established himself as one of the greatest photographers in the world.
