Synonymous with National Geographic—and the most iconic photo he shot for the publication, 1984’s “Afghan Girl”—photographer Steve McCurry (American, b. 1950) is a master of photojournalism as art. Born in Philadelphia and educated at Pennsylvania State University, McCurry has gone to great lengths to get his shots: In the 1970s, he snuck across the Afghan border in disguise just before the Soviet invasion. He has received numerous awards, including Magazine Photographer of the Year from the National Press Photographers Association and the Royal Photographic Society’s Centenary Medal. He is a member of the influential Magnum Photos cooperative, whose founders include Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson.
