  2. I stumbled upon this blog via Pinterest, but I’m so glad I did! These are gorgeous photographs. As someone who is from Pakistan and already knows how rich in beauty and culture South Asia is, I appreciate your efforts at trying to capture and share that sentiment. Keep up the good work!

  3. I see this, I read this, and I feel overwhelmed by the cascade of emotions stemming from your sensitivity as an artist. Words fail me to express how this makes me feel exactly.

  4. There are no words to define your work. Your shots are amazing, everything is perfect: light, frame, colours, characters. You always catch the perfect moment and fix it in beautiful images.

  5. Everytime I see his work and think it cant get any better because it is already the best, I am again amazed at the beauty of his work

  6. All that can be said in admiration of these superb photos is already said in comments above. I keep looking and relooking at the portraits, especially the three from Afkhanistan: a dignified gentelman in Jalalabad, the lovely young woman Murad Khani, Kabul, two women in blue with the lovely little girl peeping out of curiosity, Kabul, Afghanistan. You have captured their joy of living in perfect harmony under all circumstances . They are all dressed to give expression to human beings innermost need for art, creativity, colour and shape. Wish with all my heart to compliment them on their superb costumes as they dress to fullfil their artistic dersire. Bravo Mr. Steve McCurry!

  7. such a beautiful answer to the ugly stories of violence, poverty, war and rape, all these beautiful faces full of experience and thought, may there be peace at their places and hope and goodness and life.

  8. I too have been fortunate enough to travel along much of the GTC. Your fine images Steve brought it all flooding back, the sights sounds and smells. I am inspired to continue with my own project for 2017, a celebration of the similarities and differences between India and Pakistan post Partition. Once again thank you. Your work is amazing..

  9. Stunning scenery and people; your pictures reflect a thousand of stories in just one shot, they are magical.

  10. As architect, I have had a great satisfaction in my professional life: a client of mine, after that I complete the design and the construction of his villa, told me that his wife bought 15 McCurry’s photos and so he asked me to help her to organize them in the villa. It was a perfect opportunity to appreciate one time more steve mc curry’s great opera!!!…and the perfect way to finish an important work like that villa!

  16. Thank you as always for these Steve. Appreciate how your images capture both what is hidden from common view, as well as the essential about some of these places. I’m pretty darn sure I’ve turned that corner in Varanasi, but maybe you’ve just captured the essential corner in the warrens of that ancient city. In any case – bravo.

  17. Your great shots doesn’t need my compliments, it’s easy to see that are awesome but what impresses me is the respect and affinity for the subject expressed in your pictures.

  20. I drove overland from Germany to India in 1971, mostly following the Great Trunk Road, and then criss-crossing through India. My heart aches looking at these beautiful images. I’m so grateful to Steve McCurry for regularly sharing his exquisite art with us!

  21. As I travel annually to this part of the world, it holds a special place in my heart. I seek out the works of other photographers who also capture this unique region. What I see that sets your work apart is your humanity toward your subjects. There is kindness there, not just curiosity. You inspire us to be better, live better and see differently. Thanks.

  23. Amazing, emotional and powerful these images so beyond being photographs. Thanks for shedding light in this region.
