About the Author:

Steve McCurry (b.1950) launched his career as a photojournalist when, disguised in native garb, he crossed the Pakistan border into Afghanistan before the Russian invasion. His coverage won him the Robert Capa Gold Medal, which is given exclusively to photographers who exhibit exceptional courage and enterprise. Famous also for his work in Southeast Asia, his photographs are beautiful, uplifting and powerful. McCurry has worked for National Geographic magazine for many years and is a member of the prestigious Magnum agency. John Guy is a leading authority on the cultural history of Southeast Asia. He is Curator of Indian and South East Asian Sculpture at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and Consultant to UNESCO on historical monuments in Southeast Asia.

Review:

"Steve McCurry captures the beauty and serenity of one of the world's most wonderful sites."-Evening Mail "An immensely gifted photographer."-Modern Painters "A stunning book documenting this magical world."-Traveller "McCurry has taken not just the best photos yet of not only just the buildings and the sculpture but also the life that continues in Angkor today."-Evening Standard "Steve McCurry's lushly poignant shots of the people and places of Asia have yielded some of the best known photographic icons of our time. His images often dance on a knife-edge between sensuality and tragedy, sentiment and anguish."-The Independent

Descrizione libro Phaidon Press, 0. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Beautiful and evocative colour photographs of the temples of Angkor, Cambodia.Introduction by John Guy Beautiful and evocative photographs of the temples of Angkor in Cambodia, among the world's most impressive monuments, by the great colourist photographer of Southeast Asia, Steve McCurry Documents a magical world of carved gods, weathered masonry, tangled vegetation and orange-robed monks Accompanied by an informative introduction on the history and meaning of Angkor by John Guy, an authority on the cultural history of Southeast Asia The globally acclaimed Magnum photographer Steve McCurry has beautifully and evocatively photographed the temples of Angkor in Cambodia, which rank amongst the world's most impressive monuments. Over one hundred of his images of the site are collected in this stunning book, which documents a magical world of carved gods, weathered masonry, tangled vegetation and orange-robed monks. Angkor was the capital of the Khmer rulers from the end of the ninth century to the mid-fifteenth. Each built a state temple at the capital surrounded by walls, moats and embankments which were laid out in accordance to cosmological precepts. Designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO, the temples attract tourists, archaeologists and art historians, as well as remaining a pilgrimage destination for Buddhist monks. McCurry first visited Angkor on an assignment for National Geographic magazine, for whom he has taken famous photographs all over the world. He has made many return visits, capturing overall a sublime portrait of the buildings, sculpture and people of Angkor. The winner of numerous honors, including first prize in the World Press awards and the Robert Capa Gold Medal, McCurry has previously published Portraits and South Southeast (both with Phaidon). The photographs are accompanied by an informative introduction on the history and meaning of Angkor by John Guy, a leading authority on the cultural history of Southeast Asia. Guy is Curator of Indian and Southeast Asian sculpture at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and Consultant to UNESCO on historical monuments in Southeast Asia.
