Universally recognized as one of today's finest image makers, Steve McCurry has won many of photography's top awards.  Best known for his evocative color photography, McCurry captures the essence of human struggle and joy in the finest documentary tradition. A member of Magnum Photos since 1986, McCurry has searched and found the unforgettable. Many of his breathtaking images have become modern day icons. Born in Philadelphia, McCurry attended Pennsylvania State University where he graduated cum laude. After working at a newspaper, he traveled to India to freelance, where he realized his passion for capturing the “unguarded moment.” In India, McCurry learned to watch and wait on life. If you wait, he realized, people will forget your camera and the soul will drift up into view.

McCurry garnered international attention for photographs taken when he crossed the Pakistan border into rebel-controlled Afghanistan shortly before the Russian invasion. The rolls of film he departed with, sewn into his clothing, were among the first images published of the conflict. McCurry’s coverage in Afghanistan won him the Robert Capa Gold Medal for Best Photographic Reporting from Abroad, an award dedicated to photographers for exhibiting exceptional courage and enterprise. He has won many awards throughout his career, including Magazine Photographer of the Year, awarded by the National Press Photography Association. McCurry also received an unprecedented four first prizes in the World Press Photo Contest and has twice won the Olivier Rebbot Memorial Award.
