This magnificent book takes an unprecedented look at the work of Steve McCurry, one of today's finest and most daring image-makers.
This is the first book to fully explore how the world-renowned photographer finds, takes, and develops his uniquely iconic photographs. Presenting a personal archive of material, Steve McCurry Untold features the very best of McCurry's most beautiful and powerful photo stories, taken from around the world over the last thirty years.
Each story is illustrated with never-before-seen notes, images, and ephemera - saved by McCurry from his extensive travels - and over 100 lavish, full-colour photo plates of McCurry's most significant work.
Brought to life by newly commissioned essays, the stories offer a critical narrative and give new insight and ideas into the background, experience, and ideas behind McCurry's unparalleled photography. Together, these fascinating documents reveal a new and exciting view of the story behind the story.
