Photographer of the day: Steve McCurry

9 Nov

When looking at colour all day long when looking at ones pictures for the course you cannot avoid the photographer that has one of most colourful portfolios of all photographers I have seen.

Steve McCurry

He is probably one of the photographers that has influenced me most. Or better said, he has inspired me very much.

There are few that have such a rich colourfulness in the pictures and combine that sometimes with very beautiful, sometimes horrible pictures. Everybody thinks of the Afghan girl, young and innocent and then the picture of her 16 years later…..looking much older.

If feel an intimacy when looking at his pictures, you are there, looking at the people but not in a paparrazo-way.  Positive curious I should say.
