invites you to a private guided tour (in English) of
Le Monde du Steve McCurry
Sharbat Gula, Afghan Girl.
Peshawar, Pakistan, 1984
Undeniably one of the most remarkable American photographers of our time, Steve McCurry’s rare talent in capturing the complex universe of experiences and emotions has garnered him some of the world’s most prestigious awards and recognitions. From conflicts and wars, to ancient traditions, vanishing cultures and contemporary society, over the course of his 40-year career McCurry has created unforgettable images across all seven continents, with the human element always as the work’s focal point, its protagonist.
Join us at the Musée Maillol for the most complete retrospective of McCurry's work to ever be held in France. Let the exhibition take you on a magical yet raw journey through this artists world: from Afghanistan to India, from Southeast Asia to Africa, from Cuba to the US, to Brazil and Italy, with over 150+ photographs paying homage to the coexistence of strength and fragility, beauty and chaos, hope and despair.
Register now for this not to be missed exhibition of an artist whose work is a true testament to his conviction that "a picture can express a universal humanism, or simply reveal a delicate and poignant truth by exposing a slice of life that might otherwise pass unnoticed".
