For the first time in Ancona, from February 24 until June 25, 2017, it will be possible to admire, in the La Mole Vanvitelliana (AN)
, more than 130 photoes of Steve McCurry.
Steve McCurry is one of the greatest masters of contemporary photography and a reference for a vast audience.
The exhibition offers the most famous photos taken during McCurry's long career spanning over thirty years, but also some of his most recent works and other pictures not yet published in his many books. The tour opens with a brand new section of black and white photos taken by Steve McCurry between 1979 and 1980 during his first reportage in Afghanistan, where he entered together with the mujahideen fighting against the Soviet invasion. At the end of the tour are some very recent photos, of course in colour, taken in Afghanistan too, thus framing the story of a long adventure dedicated to photography.
