“I have visited India over 80 times but in some ways I feel I’ve barely scratched the surface. It was the first country that I traveled to as a young photographer, and I found it so unique with its varied cultures and customs and regions.”
Steve McCurry needs no introduction. He’s one of the most celebrated photographers in the world, renowned for his work in National Geographic.
Throughout December, the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City will display 37 photographs from Steve McCurry’s travels to India over the last 30 years. Some of them have never been published before, while others are already iconic.
They feature the brilliant diversity of the country with McCurry’s talented eye for colour. This exhibition also coincides with the release of his new book, India, which has 150 images of the country in total. So if you like what you see here, make sure you pick up the book.
Speaking to Time Magazine, Curry said:“No matter how much the country is changing, there’s something about India that makes you feel like you’re stepping back into another time and age.”
