The exhibition of Steve McCurry, American photographer from Philadelphia, arrives in Conegliano, and for the first time ever in Veneto.
Born in 1950, McCurry studied history and cinema but it was a trip to India that revolutionized his well-known reportage, from the moment he found himself crossing the state, then smuggling into Afghanistan. He began taking unforgettable photographs all over the world, capturing moments that narrate cultures and traditions, wars and conflicts, but always with the human element as the focus of the story.
In fact, it is humanity itself that is the main subject of all his shots. “Icons”, the photographic exhibition, allows, through over 100 images, to deepen McCurry's style and to understand his artistic evolution.The highest point of his art is the photographic portrait: famous is that of the then young girl Sharbat Gula, shot in a refugee camp in Pakistan.
The image, published in 1985, has become a symbol of the drama of the war in Afghanistan. The exhibition will be open from Wednesday to Friday from 10:00 to 13:00 and from 15:00 to 18:00, on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 to 19:00.
