Steve McCurry, a great humanist photographer

  • "Steve McCurry's World" tells the story of elsewhere and takes us on a journey of discovery of the vast world
  • But what jumps out at you when you visit this exhibition is the evidence of the common values that make up the human species. Steve McCurry is a humanist and they are life stories that he presents to us
  • Some of his photos tell the story of war and do not shy away from its brutality, but many speak of people's daily lives, the lives of ordinary people around the world
  • We see children playing with hoops in front of baobabs or playing with weapons in Afghanistan. We see warriors tenderized with their children in their arms, women in niqab licking windows in Kabul...
  • The exhibition "The World of Steve McCurry" is composed of more than 150 photos in large format
  • From the young Afghan woman with green eyes photographed in 1984, through the collapse of the Twin Towers in 2001, to monumental shots of the Antarctic landscape, the exhibition "The World of Steve McCurry" offers a magnificent retrospective of the American photographer's works
  • The visit begins with a selection of black and white war photographs taken in Afghanistan between 1979 and 1980 during the Soviet invasion
  • The rest of the tour is neither thematic nor chronological. It is a plunge into the heart of the cultures of the whole world, of the daily life of each
  • Born in 1950 in Philadelphia, Steve McCurry is recognized worldwide with his photos taken in Afghanistan at the time of the Soviet invasion. He worked on various battlefields from Beirut to Cambodia, from Kuwait to the former Yugoslavia. What interests him is not the conflicts, but how people's lives are impacted by them
  • A game booklet is offered at the entrance for the children A booklet for children under 6 years old and another for older children. The children are transformed into great reporters and go in search of the photos of the exhibition. They observe the details.

Photos of great artistic and human sensitivity; a treat for the eyes and the heart. Sometimes the space is a bit limited, especially to take a step back. Steve McCurry is a photographer who gives photo ideas to photographers sensitive to human beings.

A few pictures of Latin America that I think don't really have their place in the exhibition. For the rest, simply magnificent: each photograph is a source of wonder, surprise but especially awareness. A must see
