it's hard to know what to say about this book.
steve mccurry has been one of my favorite photographers for years.
this book answers the questions that his amazing photographs leave in your mind.
an oil fire in kuwait, there are sections based on his travels.
mccurry's famous national geographic photo is included, with the story
of searching for the young afghan girl years later. she and her family agreed to
be photographed again.
mccurry was in nyc on september 11, 2001, working in his office by washington square park. he could see the world trade center out the window. after seeing smoke billowing from the windows, he ran up to the roof with a camera. his documenting of the event appeared in the new york times and magazines and newspapers around the world.
what stays with you is his love of regular people making the best of their circumstances.
an inspiring gift for art lovers.
