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 thirty years ago. His remarkable coverage won him the Robert Capa Gold Medal, which is awarded to photographers who exhibit exceptional courage and enterprise. A recipient of an unprecedented four World Press Photo first prizes in a single year, many of McCurry's images have since become modern icons. Famous for his work across Southeast Asia, McCurry's photographs are beautiful, uplifting and affecting. McCurry is a regular contributor to many international journals including National Geographic magazine. He is a member of Magnum Photos.

Review:

. . .[McCurry] gives you a sense of not just the event but the intimate nature of photographing the event as well. The reader is offered an authentic glance behind the scenes at the life of a true voyager. Untold is an essential read for any aspiring photojournalist or anyone with that wanderlust spirit.―Photo.net, "Best Photography Books of 2013"

We've seen McCurry's greatest hits. . . Here we get the anecdotes behind these images, as well as a slew of lesser-known shots that indicate his ever-ready camera and trigger finger.―American Photo

Spread over some 250 pages are famous and lesser-known images, as well as anecdotes and shots of ephemera he gathered along the way, including letters and journal pages.―The Wall Street Journal

An incredibly thorough book. . . This collection helps us understand how and why someone could create images like those, and makes us all the more thankful for them. . . This book represents a great addition to any photo library.―Photographer's Forum

An engrossing new book about his career, Steve McCurry Untold: The Stories Behind the Photographs contains photo series, essays, journals, and assignment letters.―Newsweek/The Daily Beast

McCurry takes readers on an amazing global journey in Untold. . . This is a book suited for both browsing and focused reading.―Bookpage

Untold spans 30 years of McCurry's career and includes fascinating ephemera from his travels: diary entries, photos of him at work, and some of the 20-plus passports he's gone through over the decades. McCurry survived the Slovenia plane crash, as well as armed robbers and bombings in Afghanistan, but what comes through in his images is wonder, rather than suffering. He manages to make the world seem enormous and quite small; exotic, and somehow familiar.―TIME LightBox
