Amateur Photographer has teamed up with Nikon School and Phaidon Press to present an evening with award-winning photographer Steve McCurry at the Barbican Theatre, London, as he discusses his long-standing love and commitment to recording India’s wondrous diversity with AP Editor Nigel Atherton.
McCurry has returned to India over 80 times since his first visit in 1978 and has just published the best of his images from the sub-continent in a new book Steve McCurry: India
From Rajasthani desert dust storms to monsoon-flooded Bengali villages, McCurry’s photographs document the country’s wealth of culture and colour. His oeuvre spans conflicts, vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary culture alike, and yet always retains the human element that made his celebrated photograph of the Afghan Girl such a potent image. This is a rare opportunity to hear the internationally renowned National Geographic and Magnum photographer present his latest body of work.
Your ticket will include a signed copy of Steve McCurry: India (RRP £39.95), and there will be an opportunity to get your book personalized after the talk, which takes place on 8th December 2015 at Milton Court Concert Hall in London’s Barbican. Spaces are limited so book now to avoid disappointment – entry will be from 18:15pm.
