Afghanistan Through the Lens of Steve McCurry

August 8, 2017 at 4:10 pm Leave a comment

Steve McCurry went to Afghanistan for the first time in 1979. Now, 38 years later, McCurry ’74 is releasing a new book highlighting some of his photography from the country.

Afghanistan comes out later this month, and features more than 140 images from McCurry’s time spent abroad. His work regarding Afghanistan and its people has made headlines—the most notable example, 1984’s Afghan Girlwas deemed “arguably the most iconic picture of all time” by CNN in 2016.

You can pre-order a copy of the book right here, and head to The Guardian to check out some of McCurry’s work in Afghanistan.
