Steve McCurry, (The photographer of National Geographic Magazine)recognized universally as one of today's finest image makers, has won many of photography's top awards.

Member of Magnum Photos since 1986, McCurry has searched and found the unforgettable; many of his images have become modern icons.

Born in Philadelphia, McCurry graduated cum laude from the College of Arts and Architecture at the Pennsylvania State University. After working at a newspaper for two years, he left for India to freelance. It was in India that McCurry learned to watch and wait on life. "If you wait," he realized, "people would forget your camera and the soul would drift up into view."
