Biography

Photographer Steve McCurry is best known for his evocative color images, many of which have become modern icons. He captures the essence of human struggle and joy and has covered many areas of international and civil conflict, including Burma, Sri Lanka, Beirut, Cambodia, the Philippines, the Gulf War, the former Yugoslavia, and continuing coverage of Afghanistan and Tibet. He focuses on the human consequences of war, not only showing what war impresses on the landscape, but also on the human face.

Born in Philadelphia, McCurry graduated cum laude from the College of Arts and Architecture at the Pennsylvania State University. He has been a member of Magnum Photos since 1986. McCurry is the recipient of numerous awards, including Magazine Photographer of the Year in 1984 and the Olivier Rebbot Memorial Award in 1986 and 1992. McCurry has published several books, including The Unguarded Moment (2009), Looking East (2006), Steve McCurry (2005), The Path to Buddha: A Tibetan Pilgrimage (2003), South Southeast (2000), Portraits (1999), Monsoon (1988), and The Imperial Way (1985).
