We are pleased to present images of India by Magnum photographer Steve McCurry (b. 1950) in celebration of 75 years of India’s independence. Over a thirty-year career, McCurry has traveled the Subcontinent and the globe capturing humanity in all its glory and struggle.
McCurry’s work has been the subject of solo shows at galleries and museums worldwide, including the Rubin Museum of Art, New York; the State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg; Arsenale di Venezia, Italy; Seoul Arts Center, South Korea; Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Germany; and the Asian Civilisations Museum, Singapore. His work is represented in the collections of the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris; The International Center of Photography and The George Eastman Museum, Rochester, New York; the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Pennsylvania; and The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, among others.
McCurry’s photographs are accompanied by select work by gallery artists, including Sohan Qadri, Neha Vedpathak and Olivia Fraser, who have deep ties to the Subcontinent.
