Steve McCurry - My Heroes (cont.)

I've been a big fan of Steve McCurry ever since his coverage of the Russian invasion of Afghanistan, where he disguised himself in native dress and transported his film by sewing it into the lining of his clothes. For the Afghan coverage he was awarded the Robert Capa Gold Medal for Best Photographic Reporting from Abroad. The images in the YouTube video are part of a one man show that traveled extensively a few years ago. If you have the chance to see the prints in person do so.

Enjoy the videos. To learn more about this gifted photographer click here.
