Steve Mc Curry
. The more of his images I see the more I love them. His style while often showing poverty and cruelty always seems to have a romantic or exotic fee. It almost shows an affection towards people. His particular lighting style I feel is quite recognisable in many images. Portraits that seem to show a special relationship with all his subjects even those unknown to him. The link above shows some images from his new book which spans 30 years of journalistic photography. I have posted one which I particularly liked. The image below of a mother and child gives you a sympathy you can imagine the person inside the car warm and dry, while mother and daughter look in soaking wet on the street. Without knowing their story you feel a sympathy towards them. I feel Steve McCurry photos certainly stir emotions. He gets his point across. Being a journalist each image is published with the story, however each image can stand alone and tells a story in itself.
