Steve McCurry Icons

The exhibition of the great photographer in Villa Mussolini from April 2022

Steve McCurry is one of the most important photographers of our century and a point of reference for a large public, in youngsters in particular. Every shot by Steve McCurry describes a complex of experience and emotions and most of them have become real icons all over the world. The most famous picture of the artist is the portrait of Sharbat Gula, the Afghan girl who is considered a modern Monna Lisa.


Steve McCurry has the ability of collecting fascinating images even in the places of the world where life is difficult.

He took pictures of terrible moments, such as the tragedy of the Twin Towers, the Gulf War, the war in Afghanistan or Japan after the tsunami.



Steve McCurry was born in Philadelphia in 1950 and he started his photography career early, with a local newspaper. After three years he decided to travel to India in order to reach Pakistan and then Afghanistan with a group of mujaheddins, where he realized his first amazing reportage. Since then he collaborates with some of the most important magazines such as Time, Life, Newsweek, Geo and National Geographic.

Steve McCurry has established himself as one of the greatest photographers in the world with a career of over fourty years.
