Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than thirty years, with scores of magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name. Born in a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; McCurry studied film at Pennsylvania State University before going on to work for a local newspaper. After several years of freelance work, McCurry made his first of what would become many trips to India. Travelling with little more than a bag of clothes and another of film, he made his way across the subcontinent, exploring the country with his camera.
Steve founded ImagineAsia in 2004. The mission of IA, a 501(c)3 non profit organization, is to work in partnership with local community leaders and regional NGOs to help provide education resources and opportunities to children and young adults in Afghanistan.
