150 Portraits Of People Around The World In A 30-Year Career Retrospective By Steve McCurry Consort News November 14, 2014 Events, The Arts Legendary photojournalist Steve McCurry, who counts the famous Afghan Girl portrait as only one of his many amazing photos, is opening a retrospective exhibit in Italy called “Steve McCurry: Oltre Lo Sguardo” that will feature 150 photos taken throughout the 30 years of his illustrious career. The photos, taken among people of various cultures around the world, emphasize his unparalleled ability to capture the human soul through a lens. Steve Curry- “For me a portrait is about connection, somehow you connect with a person, visually or emotionally,” McCurry told designboom. “I’ve often believed that a person’s life stories are kind of written on their face. It’s magical, it’s mystical the way you can connect to a person, it’s hard to describe. You know it when you see it.” The exhibit will be held in the beautiful Villa Reale di Monza in Italy, but it will run through April 6th, 2105, so if you’re dying to see his photos (as you should be), you can still make plans.
