Details

Documentary photographer and storyteller Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for almost 40 years. His work spans conflicts, ancient traditions and contemporary culture from six continents – yet always retains the human element that made his celebrated image of a young Afghan girl, published on the cover of National Geographic Magazine, so powerful. McCurry has received some of the most prestigious awards in the industry, including the Robert Capa Gold Medal, four first prize awards from the World Press Photo contest and a Centenary Medal for Lifetime Achievement from the Royal Photographic Society in London.

The exhibition is made possible by Capes Sokol, Karen and Dr. Lawrence Kotner, Northern Trust, Aldine Travel, Inc. and Dr. Susan Pittman
