Different Childhood

An Afghanistan girl

Born in Philadelphia, McCurry graduated cum laude from the College of Arts and Architecture at the Pennsylvania State University. Best known for his evocative color photography, Steve McCurry, in the finest documentary tradition, captures the essence of human struggle and joy.

“Most of my images are grounded in people. I look for the unguarded moment, the essential soul peeking out, experience etched on a person’s face. I try to convey what it is like to be that person, a person caught in a broader landscape that you could call the human condition.”

In this collection of McCurry’s work, I was impressed with the pictures of children he captured in many areas of the world, including India, Cambodia, Burma, the Philippines, and continuing coverage of Afghanistan.
