Steve McCurry, Blogger
I just learned that our favorite photographer, Steve McCurry ’74, has a blog. Looks like he’s been doing it since May. He talks about the stories behind some of his photos, explains his thought process, and offers advice to budding photographers. On the latter subject, he says, “When people ask me how they can become a photographer, I almost never mention cameras, lenses, or technique. I say, ‘If you want to be a photographer, first leave home.’” He goes on to explain the importance of exposing yourself to new places and experiences.
Among other things, I learned from reading his blog that some of his images were projected at the Staples Center during Michael Jackson’s memorial service. Pretty cool.
