Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic figures in contemporary photography for more than thirty five years. McCurry's images were among the first to show the world the brutality of the Russian invasion in Afghanistan. Since his work in Afghanistan, McCurry has gone on to create unforgettable images over six continents and numerous countries. His body of work spans conflicts, vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary culture alike - yet always retains the human element that made his celebrated image of the Afghan Girl such a powerful image. McCurry has been recognized with some of the most prestigious awards including the Robert Capa Gold Medal, National Press Photographers Award, and an unprecedented four first prize awards from the World Press Photo contest amongst dozens of others.

Steve was the Special Guest of the 4th edition of the Biennial of Fine Art & Documentary Photography (Berlin Foto Biennale) exhibiting his Retrospective Asia, a Life in PIctures, curated by Magnum Photos and Julio Hirsch-Hardy.
