Podcast from George Eastman House about Steve McCurry, world famous from his "Afghan girl" photograph.
For more than twenty-five years Steve McCurry has covered areas of international and civil conflict, including the IranIraq war, the disintegration of the former Yugoslavia, Beirut, Cambodia, the Philippines, the Gulf War, and Afghanistan. Face of Asia concentrates on his extensive work from Asia, including images from India, Afghanistan, as well as recent work from Cambodia and Tibet. McCurrys vivid color images and descriptive titles give us in the West a window into the cultures and peoples of Asia. Included is extensive text covering the story of the "Afghan Girl" as a young refugee and the woman found seventeen years later.
This traveling exhibition provides an opportunity for visitor education on geography, Asian culture, and politics. Face of Asia was organized by George Eastman House with the support of Eastman Kodak Company and Nikon, Inc.
