Steve McCurry is one of the greatest contemporary photographers. He inspires people, especially the younger generation, who see his images as a way to interpret our present. Each of his photographs depicts a complex world of experiences and emotions spanning conflicts, ancient traditions, disappearances, and contemporary cultures in equal measure. But the focus is always on the person, which is what made his famous portrait of the Afghan girl a powerful work. During his first report in Afghanistan, he entered the country with a group of Mujahideen who were fighting the Soviet invasion. This is how he met the Afghan girl he photographed in the Peshawar refugee camp in Pakistan. The image has become an icon in the history of photography and is one of the most published images ever.
