Steve McCurry's portraits are clasically eye catching and inspiring. Beautiful vividly colored pictures from distant lands such as Asia,India,Afica, and Middle East capture the many emotions of humanity through photography. A+
It's really a shame that this is not of coffee-table proportions. Perhaps Phaidon should do it justice the second time around. These are tremendous and sensitive works, worth studying compassionately. The range of subjects is of course what makes this work exceptional.
