+++ CULTURE TIP - Steve McCurry Exhibition  +++

"My life is shaped by the urgent need to wander and observe, and my camera is my passport." (Steve Mccurry)


Award winning Magnum photojournalist Steve McCurry is currently exhibiting photographs taken in asia from his work period 1980-2011 in the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Germany. 

His photographs reveal the collision of cultures in everyday life. Others show people facing war or enduring catastrophes such as the monsoon.

His most iconic image is the evocative photograph of the young Afghan girl Sharbat Gula. The photograph was taken in a refugee camp in Pakistan in 1984. The photograph embodied the suffering of Afghan civilists after years of soviet occupation. It was published as the cover of the National Geographic in 1985. The image itself became the most recognized photograph in the history of the National Geographic magazine.
