Steve McCurry Masterclass
What would you do on a Saturday night? Instead of a night of X-Factor and Strictly I attended a talk by Legendary photographer, and I mean legendary, Steve McCurry.
If you don’t know who he is you’ll know his photo: Afghan Girl. One of the most famous photographs of all time, and an image that helped introduced Afghanistan to the world.
At 3 hours long it seemed short as he went through a selection of his most iconic images
Although primarily a war photographer, his work lends itself very much to travel and his stunning images capture some of the least welcoming parts of the world beautifully. If you don’t know his work check out: his website
I’m off travelling soon, and this is the kind of inspiration I need. If I took anything away from his work, it’s that he always includes a human element - as a viewer it draws us into the image and helps develop a strong psychological or emotional bond.
