Steve McCurry: The Iconic Photographs: Standard Edition is an evocative compilation of some of the most memorable images taken by Steve McCurry over a span of thirty years. The pictures in this book have been photographed across the globe and they capture some of the highly enticing and vivid memories. Through this book, Steve has showcased his ability to understand variant cultures of the world and capture the attractive dimensions of different nations through photography.
The photographs of this book are not just a set of images but an expert presentation that reveals the story of the objects. The portraits of rustics, children, people working at the farms and common road-walkers have been shot in beautiful scenic backgrounds. They convey the life of that moment to those who are viewing the pictures. The beautiful blend of common and uncommon activities like festivals, fishing, playing of children and prayers at the religious hubs are brought to life by Steve in his creative compilation through this book.
Every image is not just full-coloured but also covered in full page-size to bring maximum impact. There are colourful thumbnails with captions provided at the end of the book to extend the required piece of information about the photographs. Phaidon Press published the reprint edition of Steve McCurry: The Iconic Photographs: Standard Edition in 2012 in hardcover.
