Content

The biggest and most comprehensive volume on Steve McCurry published to date and the final word on forty years of McCurry’s incredible work. Written and compiled by Bonnie McCurry, Steve’s sister and President of the McCurry Foundation, Steve McCurry: A Life in Pictures is the ultimate book of McCurry’s images and his approach to photography. The book brings together all of McCurry’s key adventures and influences, from his very first journalistic images taken in the aftermath of the 1977 Johnstown floods, to his breakthrough journey into Afghanistan hidden among the mujahideen, his many travels across India and Pakistan, his coverage of the destruction of the 1991 Gulf War and the September 11th terrorist attacks in New York, up to his most-recent work. Totalling over 350 images, the selection of photographs includes his best-known shots as well as over 100 previously unpublished images. Also included are personal notes, telegrams and visual ephemera from his travels and assignments, all accompanied by Bonnie McCurry’s authoritative text – drawn from her unique relationship with Steve – as well as reflections from many of Steve’s friends and colleagues. Steve McCurry: A Life in Pictures is the complete, definitive volume on McCurry.
