Photographer Steve McCurry is responsible for some of the most iconic images from brutal war zones of the late twentieth century: Afghanistan, Lebanon, Kuwait and 9/11. One of his most renowned portraits of “Afghan Girl” was plastered on National Geographic’s 1985 cover. In every bit of his long career, he has celebrated the world’s color and diversity through photography, his work being the personification of the photographer-as-global adventurer and intrepid chronicler of his time. McCurry: The Pursuit of Colour is a portrait of both a deeply-engaged artist and an expression of McCurry’s vision of the world at the nexus of profound beauty and heartbreak.
