BIRMINGHAM, UK – Birmingham Museum and Art
Gallery
presents the first and only UK exhibition of critically acclaimed
photojournalist Steve McCurry, in association with Magnum Photos. The
exhibition
includes over eighty striking images that span a remarkable twenty year
career,
including his world renowned portrait “Afghan Girl”. Steve McCurry is
recognised
as one of the world’s finest photographers and during his career he has
covered
many international and civil conflicts, particularly within the regions
of Asia
and the Middle East. McCurry made his name covering the Russian invasion
of
Afghanistan in the 1980s, after he managed to smuggle the films over the
border
by sewing them into his clothes.
