About Looking East
This portfolio contains a selection of the best and also most poignant portraits by Steve McCurry, a photographer known and loved the world over for his beautiful and enduring images of the landscapes and people of South and Southeast Asia. The collection includes iconic as well as lesser known portraits of children, monks, pilgrims, and travellers that McCurry has encountered on his journeys throughout Afghanistan, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Pakistan, and Tibet.
“Steve McCurry’s lushly poignant shots of the people and places of Asia have yielded some of the best know photographic icons of our time… His images often dance on a knife-edge between sensuality and tragedy, sentiment as well as anguish.”-Independent
