FLORENCE, ITALY – 40 years of activity the master of world photography Steve McCurry celebrated in a 100 shots-exhibition at the suggestive and fascinating Villa Bardini, Florence.
Until September 16th the exhibition ‘Steve McCurry. Icons’, curated by Biba Giacchetti, collects the 100 shots documenting the best of what the American artist has achieved in 40 years of activity.
The exhibition takes visitors on a symbolic journey into the complex universe of experiences and emotions that characterize his images and which will touch countries such as India, Afghanistan, Burma, Japan, Cuba and Brazil.
Do not miss the portrait of Sharbat Gula, the Afghan girl that McCurry has photographed in the Peshawar refugee camp in Pakistan and who, with her big green eyes and sad look, has become an absolute icon of world photography.
Within the exhibition, the film is shown, produced by National Geographic, dedicated to the long search that allowed to find, 17 years later, ‘the Afghan girl’ now adult.
