World-famous photographer Steve McCurry, perhaps best known for his “Afghan Girl” portrait—often regarded as one of National Geographic’s most iconic front covers—currently has a four-month-long exhibition, entitled ‘A Lifetime of Work’, on display at the House of Lucie: Center for Photography. These intensely arresting images are beautifully composed and expertly lit, but they also convey so much about the subjects depicted that it’s hard not to feel drawn into the larger story they illustrate.
The exhibit features some of McCurry’s best portraits and images, carefully assembled from his extensive collection. The show has been curated by Hossein Farmani for the House of Lucie, and includes both large- and small-scale portraits that the artist has captured around the world—across numerous international and civil conflicts. The photos on display have been selected to show the scope of McCurry’s work, from his early days as a newspaper journalist, to his recent commercial works that have never been displayed before, including his platinum series. This retrospective has over 180 images, the biggest so far of his work.
Until March 14, 2017
